What does everyone use to protect their computer?  Currently I'm using Avast Free and Malware Bytes Free.

My favorite computer security news site has been Please login or register to see this link. for a while.  I used to read Please login or register to see this link. a lot, but eventually it got too convoluted for me. 

I can't live without NoScript, UBlockOrigin and Adblockplus anymore either.  They make web browsing a lot more comfortable for me.

On unsecured devices I forgot how nasty and annoying the net can be. >.< My PS Vita can barely surf the web anymore because of all the stupid ads. -_- I notice a lot of sites are taking up arms to block these programs lately.  Hopefully they can be countered, eventually!  I always hated ads because they are almost always misleading and many times dangerous to my computer's health.  It's not that I don't wanna support the owners (I disable them on sites I like/trust), but so many of them are shady!

Something that I've recently added to my browsers, that's been HUGE, has been TamperMonkey.

Please login or register to see this link.

I've added a couple scripts:

iJtbj5d.jpg

AdsBypasser: Please login or register to see this link.

Desc: 

This user script helps you to:

  • skip countdown ads or continue pages.
  • prevent ad pop-up windows.

This will "skip" some of the "Please wait 5 seconds before hitting continue" pages like adfly and a couple others.

 

Anti-Adblock Killer: Please login or register to see this link.

Desc:

Helps you keep your Ad-Blocker active, when you visit a website and it asks you to disable.

Composed of a user script «AakScript» written in javascript and a filter list «AakList» using the same syntax as lists AdBlock and AdBlock Plus, the two are complementary and unlock different website.

 

Mouseover Popup Image Viewer: Please login or register to see this link.

Desc:

Shows images and videos behind links and thumbnails my hovering your mouse over the image.

 

AAK-Cont: Addition for uBlock Origin to extent it's reach and usability on the web.

I also use Avast Free ( for many, many years) I love the way it will pop up saying threat detected and will abort the page for loading... pretty awesome for a free product imo

Also use Malwarebytes with Cameleon and RKILL

Used the mosted updated version of CCleaner (removed older versions due to vunerability issues)

Also primary browser is Firefox (custom mode private) with ABP

      I am posting this since @ElTacoDestroyer was inquring about an image viewer with a slideshow option, well here is the one I decided was really nice for more features and options. It's free too.
      It reminds me of the older Windows Photo Viewer but with some extra conveniences that other viewers (like Nexus) lack.

      Microsoft’s Windows 10 May 2019 Update puts you back in control of updates and Separates Cortana from Windows Search!
      Microsoft is planning to start rolling out its Windows 10 May 2019 Update next week to testers before it’s more broadly available in late May. The new update is the next major version of Windows 10, codenamed “19H1,” and it’s a relatively light update in terms of features. Microsoft’s big visual change is a Please login or register to see this link. , alongside Please login or register to see this link. , a Please login or register to see this link. , and the Please login or register to see this link. .
      The May 2019 Update will also allow Windows 10 users to take control of how they get feature updates. Microsoft has been aggressively pushing these updates to machines once they’re ready, ensuring that consumers are on the very latest version of the operating system. That’s about to change: the May 2019 Update will now let you choose when to install the latest major version. Windows 10 users will be able to simply stay on an existing version and continue to receive monthly security updates, avoiding the latest feature update.

      Microsoft is letting Windows 10 users avoid feature updates and delay patches
      Microsoft is also allowing Windows 10 Home and Pro users to pause feature and monthly updates for up to 35 days, and it’s introducing intelligent active hours so the OS can detect when you’re still using your PC so updates don’t get installed and annoy you. Windows updates have been a particular pain point for Windows 10 users, and Microsoft is clearly listening and providing far more choice now. There will still be prompts to push people to get the latest feature update, but it won’t be forced immediately anymore.
      Microsoft is also addressing some of the Please login or register to see this link. that we saw throughout 2018. The software maker was forced to delay its April 2018 Update due to Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) issues, and then it pulled its October 2018 Update after a few days of some users complaining that files were being deleted. Microsoft is taking a far more careful approach with the May 2019 Update this time around. The update will arrive to Release Preview testers next week, and there’s now a far larger gap between that final test phase before it rolls out more broadly later next month.
      That’s weeks of additional testing and checks, instead of the days we saw with the last release. Microsoft is also tweaking the way it sorts through the thousands of pieces of feedback it receives each day about Windows updates to spot issues like the data loss problems from the October 2018 Update. On top of all of this, Microsoft is even launching a new dashboard later this month to track the health of Windows releases, so if you experience any issues, you’ll be able to check to see these against real-time known problems.
      It’s encouraging to see Microsoft making these changes and the increased transparency around the status of Windows updates, in general. While the issues we saw in 2018 weren’t widespread, Microsoft is carefully working to avoid that from happening again.

      Idk about everyone else, but I can't stand having a million bars and menus all over my image views. Thanks to Nexus Image Viewer, I can view the image only, all by itself! It's now my default image viewer.  I Love how I can just click the image to move it around too, not having to worry about grabbing the title bar. Best of all, it's FREE!

      There is a few extra useful functions like deleting on the fly or having a sidebar to see other images in the folder as well.
