Re: NVDA going silent.

Windows Defender isn't a cloud program but it does have, the last I checked, reasonable though not really good ratings.  Considering the inaccessibility of a lot of antimalware programs and the reasonable, though not great ratings, that it is free, and that it is not a drag on system performance, it is an alternative worth considering.  Many people run it in conjunction with Malware Bytes.

Well technically with things like cloud protection, if someone gets
infected with it first, as well as using its own datasets, it can draw
from others that have had the same malware to update its databases etc.

Which antivirus or antimalware programs do you use? For a second opinion I'd recommend installing the free version of MalwareBytes to see if it detects anything.
