    Should I test F-Secure Ultralight AV? :emoji_ok_hand: Looks rlly good for Gaming
    I used to have Ultralight AV. It's nowhere as good as G-Data. It is light when you don't do anything but it slows down web browsing dramatically if you visit a domain that you have not visited before. Lots of false positives. It doesn't block games but it blocks game clients like Steam, Origin, Uplay from connecting to the Internet. The only solution I found was to fully uninstall.

    AdBlock Genesis Plus

    uBlock Origin
    Be careful with that adblock genesis plus, did fast googling and they have no website, not open source project and only negative comments on reddit. I doubt anything will beat ublock origin, unless you like adguard

    Ps. Theres smartadblock here on mt with their own adblock product if you want to check it out
    Extension - A first look at SmartAdblock for Firefox and Chrome

    My vote goes for ublock origin thought

    Hmm fair enough, do it have script blocking & can you add filterlists of your choise?

    I have never heard of this adblocker and i kind of hope @Windows_Security could have insight on this, is it safe to use this or is it just another datamining/ backdoor to something worse

    Author promises that it has its own propierty engne which uses half the memory of uBlock and Adblock :cool:

    .... while in reality it is just another uBlock rip-off (left even copyright remarks in the javascript code) :emoji_sob:

    Would not touch it with a pole :cautious: when providing uninstall feedback (bye) it links to non-existing website

    I found MSI Afterburner to be invaluable for creating a fan profile for my graphics processor. The default was 27% and never budged from that, it was ridiculous. It just has to start w/Windows in order to keep the profile active but it's so tiny and unobtrusive. (y) My hardware is pretty dated so I may use Afterburner to overclock a little bit in the future.
