    Update:
    Removed CCleaner and installed Wise Care Free 365,so far so good
    I've been using it for 2 weeks and it's feels so amazing.I don't know if can mention this here,but.....

    Majorgeeks had some sweet giveaways during the Christmas season and one of them was a fully activated Wise Care 365 Pro.As long as you don't update it,you have access to all of the functions + all of the added features....

    ^This one is installed on my home PC.I managed to create a portable version and have that on my USB stick....Been cleaning out corporate and home PC's left and right with the thing.

    Is there a way we can share the file? I could send it to you,so you could try out.Maybe an FTP of sorts?

    I did not knew LastPass and has happened to me as SlimJet , which has been a real find.Thanks. :)

    I have on my computer w7 , Voyager , and Manjaro Elementary Os in each system a minimum of 2 browsers, LastPass for me is a tool not only safe , if not very handy,is in all my browsers , why ?, you configure it only one time and you fit all browsers.
    Try it for free , and you can see that it is very comfortable.

    Greetings friend :)

    After a long time i updated my config.
    The last few days i tried some programs that other members recommend.

    I installed Sumatra PDF, MS Office 2007 (on external HDD), MBAM, VLC Media Player and uBlock.

    The one i installed and find very useful is Shadow Defender:D. Very good security software and also very light on my old laptop;):).

    Other programs that i tried but in the end were uninstalled are:
    MBAE: offers a good level of security but i experienced browsing slowdown:(

    Citrio browser: heavy on system, my fan was working overtime, it had 8 services running but i was only watching MT:confused::(

    7 Star browser: much lighter than Citrio but Emsisoft AM gave me 5 alerts (2 or 3 where red) when i was installing it:eek:

    EagleGet Download manager: it doesn't work on Cyberfox x64. I even did uninstall-reinstall but again it didn't work:(
    but it does work on IE 11;). In the end i rarely use IE so i don't need EagleGet.

    The last thing i want to tell you is that in February i did an upgrade on my laptop.
    I installed Samsung SSD 850 EVO 120 GB:D. Now Windows open in about 10-15 seconds:) and my laptop is as good as a new one;)
    The old HDD i kept it as an external HDD:)

    @frogboy yes Shadow Defender is great not only as a security program to protect from malware
    but it's good also for testing other software;)

    When i tried Citrio and 7 Star i had Shadow mode enabled so when i decided that i don't want them i did a restart and Shadow Defender
    took care of them and it didn't left any trace :D, that is just great:).

    As for the SSD if you have the money go for it. My laptop is 6 1/2 years old and it works great,
    i dare to say better even from the first day:D.
    As you read i can surf in the internet in under 20 seconds:)
    With Windows 7 and the old HDD i was waiting 45 seconds and more for the laptop to open.
    p.s.: Samsung SSD 850 EVO 120 GB has 5 years warranty :D i think that is also great:)

    Update
    Removed: Emsisoft AM. My wife had browsing slowdown with AVG IS so i removed it and installed in her pc Emsisoft AM
    Bye bye Emsisoft :(. After a tweaking her pc is running smooth:).
    Also removed uBlock

    Added: Kaspersky AV. So far it's running smooth, no browsing slowdown and the boot is very quick about the same
    with Emsisoft. Full scan was quick less than 9 minutes.
    Also added Adguard add-on on Cyberfox. I like it it's light:)

    p.s.: I wanted for years to try Kaspersky but when i was heaving W7 always something was going wrong and couldn't
    operate the way it was supposed to do.
    So now i am very happy that i can use it:).
    Kaspersky was the only AV i haven't used from the more known security companies all this years.
    I hope it will perform well
