I have a laptop running Windows 10 with as many of the features turned off as possible, in reference to privacy concerns. I conduct all of my online and offline use with a local account and my browser of choice is Google Chrome running the Adblock extension and the Ghostery extension. I'm using Bitdefender anti virus free edition.
What else should I consider implementing to better secure my computer with layer's of security?
I'm currently researching free anti exploit software. What ever free software that I use, regardless of what it does, it can not interfere with any other security software or turn it off. For example, I downloaded and installed ZoneAlarm free firewall and it turned off the Windows 10 firewall by default. I ended up uninstalling the ZoneAlarm free firewall, due to the fact that every time I turned the Windows 10 firewall on to run with the ZoneAlarm free firewall as an extra layer of security, the Windows 10 firewall would turn off by default, upon restarting Windows 10.
One more thing that I do not wish to have is constant ad's popping up with the free software, if possible. Thanks.
