    That is the main reason for taking over a company : take the best that they posses and implement it yourself and burry your opponent. it is a huge shame that avast , slowely buy steadyly is killing of AVG.....

    A complete overhaul. Moved away from Windows, am now using Linux Mint. Should AdGuard be ported to Linux in the future, I will most likely use it again.

    The DLL/Driver blocking features are golden.

    Linux just not up to snuff for me. Fonts look awful, and getting a wireless USB adapter to work was more trouble than it's worth.

    Ubuntu fonts are great and I've plugged 2 new USB adaptors into my Linux mint system today 1 a Bluetooth adaptor, both were recognised and atua setup straight away. The fonts thing I understand but Ubuntu fonts are nice. The USB adaptor problem I've seen on Windows, GNU/Linux distros and Mac OS. It seems you're just not prepared to put a bit of effort in when completely changing your OS which is cool, but, for me my USB adaptors including Bluetooth adaptors work on every distro I use without me having to do a thing. A lot of people say 'Oh, I'm switching to Linux' and aren't prepared to do a few google searches to get things up and running IF they come across problems. It would be like a life long GNU/Linux user switching to Windows 10, they'd have to find a security software/s they liked, disable telemetry and all sorts of other things. I got a fair few friends switched over to Mint with no problems at all. You can't have 'A complete overhaul' and not expect a few issues because, afterall it is a complete overhaul lol.

    I disagree.

    You're assuming I didn't. In fact, I got the wireless adapter working, it was the fonts that drove me away.

    This has been the case for me in the past, with most peripherals (started using Linux in 2003). The fact that fifteen years later certain adapters don't work out of the box is a tad annoying.

    I've never had problems with Mint and USB adapter problems. My mouse, keyboard and other things work just fine. I also have a newer Nuc Skull Canyon, I'm not sure if that could be helping out or not.

    Do you use a sandbox in your setup? I never found one that could successfully coexist with Norton AV.

    appguard
    rehips
    osarmor
    comodo
    spyshelter
    mbae
    adguard
    browser extension add ons
    added hmpa
    hmpa alert is potent, but hard to configure - seems to mess with browser extensions
    may uninstall qihoo 360 - because av/ scanner is said to be reactive not proactive - and said to spy
    have always had an av scanner
    may try syshardener as mentioned a @guest

    The thing is i don't know what kind of user he is and what kind of soft he prefers, so with all those mentioned softs, the number of combination is high.

    based on the list, i would advise: one default-deny (one anti-exe or HIPS or SRP or BB) + one anti-exploit = effective, simple, light.
    then he may use system hardeners which doesn't eat resources.

    Streamline. Finding the most time tested layered security most effective with least overhead.

    Now if you are an guest's ultimate, that is an entirely different fortress :D

    yes, guest is right - can remove some software
    there is a problem with hmpa alert - which i just added - it does not like mozilla browser add ons - so far hmpa has made pale moon extensions not
    work, and now firefox - i do not even want to start up cyberfox or waterfox - most add ons do work, some do not - i would say nintey five percent work - but one i really like that hmpa stops from operation is one tab - i do not like having a lot of tabs open - and when using one tab it brings memory usage down quite a bit - i will only use mozilla browsers with one tab - i will try a mozilla browser install in safe mode, and test all the add on functions - and then restart computer and see what happens - already uninstalled pale moon - now have to uninstall firefox
    also hmpa gives an intruder alert every time i start a mozilla browser - screen shot posted
    if hmpa blocks add ons - will have to uninstall it

    update - have just looked through previous wilders hitman pro alert pages about intruder alerts and add ons - and it seems some add ons are just not liked by hmpa

    update 2 - does not matter if i disable exploit mitigation and safe browsing for specific mozilla browser - hmpa still will not let certain add ons install/work

    update 3 - have installed pale moon with just the one tab add on - hmpa has let the browser be insofar to this extent

    update 4 - pale moon and the extensions are still working with hmpa - I haven't added every add on - going to add each one at a time and restart the browser to check if pale moon goes from the green line browser surrounding box of safe browsing - to the red line browser surrounding box of intruder alert - in interest is that it was not the add on one tab that hmpa did not like - but a different one - that still made hmpa remove one tab even though another browser extension was considered an intruder
