Avira Browser safety caused a memory leak where every tab consumed 100-200MB of extra RAM. Thanks to @Spawn about the post regarding ABS on firefox.

No, @Umbra means Bitwarden is less bloated and less targeted by hackers. ;)
By the way: good configuration!
Thanks.
But I want to switch to LP since it has push notification based 2FA for easy login.
Even 1 Click matching site is absent from BW. Then again, migration from LP to BW is a pain. I'm glad I sorted this issue out. And imported data is a success.

What kind of issues? Did you try build 137 or 167?
Apps and games were slower to launch. Had to rebuild ngen or assembly cache to get some improvements. Then again, my RAM module failed suddenly. So, I reverted back and performance was back to normal. I tried updating to 137 and installed new adobe flash and servicing stack really messed it up even on good RAM module. So, now even with spectre OS protection slowdown was minimal and barely noticeable.

@Umbra Do you have any recommendation for on demand scanners? I'm thinking of removing MBAM 2.x and ZAM(not updated for a year)
Do you recommend CCleaner latest version? I'm holding back at 5.43 and never updated. The setup file is becoming massive day by day. Wise disk cleaner and System Ninja setup files are under 5Megs. Is it advisable to update MBAM 2 to 3.x?

For OD scanners, i only use EEK (Emsisoft) and HMP, nothing else. They just sit there in case I see abnormal behaviors on my system.

About cleaners, I use CCleaner and Wisedisk cleaner both in portable version.

About MBAM, i have a lifetime premium license and I don't use it yet... I will do when they will implement WFC.
MBAM 3.0 is living now only on its old v1.75 reputation... To me it is almost obsolete.

Aren't they paid SW with real time protection and cause unwanted behaviour w/ Defender and AppGuard?
