    at least on edge, the no track option does work. on "what is my referrer" it doesn't show previous sites. but on brave, the option still shows where ive been recently.. odd.

    If you enjoy tinkering, you might consider setting up GODMODE. If you Google it you will get lots of choices. I have provided one of many below:

    They do find exploits in Flash Player on a weekly basis so it seems. The problem is, not all websites have updated to HTML5, so if you don't have flash player, you may not be able to view/interact with some sites. So it's your personal choice on if you want to have flash available for non HTML5 sites you may encounter.

    Thunderbird is slowly dying, few updates etc.
    A far better email solution is Mailbird. I've tried most email applications over the years & Mailbird is the best I've found so far
    Have you tried eM Client? I really like it for my purposes.

    I have two suggestions: one is to look at the download tool Ninite, because it lists the most commonly installed Windows programs. Here's the pick list from its home page:

    The second thing is to provide some recommendations for must-have or sometimes-must-use tools not yet already mentioned:
    1. NirSoft NirLauncher: Nir Sofer has been building outstanding software tools of all kinds for over a decade. NirLauncher lets you grab most (or all) of them in one go.
    2. DriverStore Explorer: great for cleaning up/removing duplicate device drivers
    3. Uncleaner: handy little cleanup tool that gets stuff other programs (including CCleaner) miss
    4. HomeDev PatchCleaner: cleans out obsolete files from your WinSxS hierarchy
    5. Windows Update MiniTool: a capable and helpful Windows Update replacement/alternative
    Great question, with a lot of great answers all over this thread.

    I use MalwareBytes Pro (PAID) and it runs all the time in the background. Catches Malware IMMEDIATELY and closes that page.
