    Wow, Nice Config :) But, I suggest you to try Macrium Reflect Free or AOMEI Backupper Free because they are reliable :D
    What is the browser you're using ? Thanks for sharing your config :)

    My main browser in GC (stable, x64) with Firefox as backup.

    And regarding backups: Windows built-in tools are good enough for me so I don't need any 3rd party tools ;)

    I think you forgot to add your browser on the 'Browser and extensions' field :)

    @pablozi: ZAM Free and Norton Power Eraser as extra on demand scanners would be interesting :)

    Also probably to use one of the already mentioned free image backup solutions, I'm not so much confident about own integrated in Windows 10, but just my humble opinion :)

    Apart from that, secure config, thanks for sharing :)
