The main reason for me to always turn off the internet while installing Win10 (I had to reinstall a couple of times due to a corrupted harddrive) and making an offline account. I am pretty sure most of the sites are still connected to, as soon as Windows has a connection, but I can at least pretend, they are not. And I never had any problems with suggestions in my starting menu or similar stuff, so it appears that it has some effect.

On a positive note, it turns out just installing Bitdefender on top of the desktop PC makes Windows Defender happy because Bitdefender assumes all control.

I just wonder if Avira anti-virus is really such a cancer that can't get cleaned up, not just by uninstalling it but also by using their removal tool. Never had problems with Windows Defender/Mirosoft Security Essentials before.

 "I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...
