      I bought Bitdefender in a package and installed it on everything, mostly because it means less frequent maintenance/reinstall on my mother's PC. I am really proud of the fact that she is familiar with the internet, and learned the basics of English at old age just to understand stuff. But in the end she is too naive to the harsh reality of the internet. For that purpose the Bitdefender worked out really well, since with its autpilot mode deals with most of the stuff without interaction and it only gives her a message that what she did was a bad idea. :)

      I 'd also install µBlock Origin and something like Ghostery and NoScript (takes a little time to set that up and explain) - ofc depending on the content of your security suite.

      jeez, thats some high level shit. 

      I've had one instance of malware I couldn't remove. hid itself in the RAM I think. (thats where my AV said it was) no AV I tried could remove it. ended up reinstalling windows and that got rid of it.

      I'd rather watch an SSD get thrashed 24/7 until it dies. At least then I'll have a rough idea of how long the stream will be instead of playing lottery.

      Hmm, I read patch 7.2. Seeing as how 7.1 isn't even out yet I wouldn't expect it till early march. Or i'm just dumb. That said, it is WG, so who knows.

      When I read this, I was like "oh man, these things are probably special order only right now and cost like 1000000000000000000000000 because eastern european shithole", but a lot are actually available and cost roughly 370€ on average, which is surprising considering most stuff is like 30%+ more expensive than in the west.

      Also, I'd really like one, but too poor atm. Somebody buy me one pls QQQQQQ
