    I disabled all Windows Exploit Protection Settings as I want the max performance. I have NOD32 installed and an adblocker and all my software is genuine. Is this a good idea? Please explain why not if it's not.

    No, it isnt, it is actually a very bad idea and the impact on system performance should be minimal, especially in a high end, modern CPU.

    You are disabling the base that makes Windows 10 a secure OS by default, I can't comprehend your decision, you are overestimating third party security and highly underestimating the impact of technologies like DEP, ASLR and CFG.

    Take your time and read about those mitigations:
