    Except for those tweaks built in WD, what else do you tweak in other AVs ?
    compare the user controlled settings in bitdefender total security and wd and just try to tell me again that wd is as customizable.

    I used many AVs during the years including Bit defender just over a year ago. I'm pretty sure I know what they can do. I asked about specifics, not some general thing.

    Which (inevitably) brings rather unexperienced home users like myself to two direct questions:

    1. Would you advise an average and yet rather prudent user to rely only on WD in a Windows 10 (e.g. Home) environment or for the time being a "solid" and possibly not free (internet) security package should be still regarded as a top priority within a family budget?
    2. Moreover, the fact that WD has evolved so much, should be considered as a deterrent to install on the same machine other firms' antiviruses or security packages out of fear of some possible hidden incompatibility between the Microsoft program and the other one (even if of course the mere fact of installing another ware should automatically and completely disable WD)?

    Thanks a lot :)

    Sorry to bother again, guys... pray tell, got any suggestions?

    Not a bother Lmbrt. I've read several posts about the use of common sense and prudence coupled with an AV is really one of the best safe systems. Much like yourself "an average and yet rather prudent user" sharing some of your concerns (compatibility? & conflicts?), I've convinced myself to follow others here and go with Windows Defender & Firewall along with Malwarebytes & AdwCleaner.
