I vote for the Old setting menu, specifically that shield part that let use excluded file/folders/process from SHIELDS ONLY.

None of actual voted options are something I care fore

The hacked passwords and web notification features look most useful. Driver Updater might be, if it doesn't risk applying the wrong driver e.g. a generic one instead of for a specific laptop configuration.

There should really be an option to choose 'Don't want' as some of the suggestions are not even a 'Nice to have'... I don't think Speed Test has any place in an AV, it's really not hard to find several good tests online. The AV Timeline will also be of no interest to the vast majority of users who just want an 'install and forget' AV.

Firewall redesign in Premium is most welcome! But would the lite version be any better than the built in W10 firewall? If not, it's probably not needed and just adds extra complexity.

I also support all 3 suggestions by Martin.
For me
" improving the handling of firewall rules and customization options"
is something I've always looked for.
