Hi, I suggest you to choose a more reliable real-time protection solution, such as Panda Antivirus Free 2015, or AVG Free 2015, or Avira Antivirus Free 2015, etc.
Then add BitDefender 60 second virus scanner, which is quick and light.
So, add PrivaZer and a second browser.
Add uBlock, HTTPS everywhere extensions.
And remove Glary Utilities.

P.S. It's Windows Defender, not Window's Defender :D

Thanks for sharing it ;)

Good configuration, safe for normal use (you don't play with malware :D).
Microsoft Edge is the default browser for Windows 10, However, if you're running web apps that need ActiveX controls, you can continue to use Internet Explorer 11 for them.

If you want better extension support, Google Chrome or Firefox are good alternates, plus both implement Google Safe Browsing for protection against Malicious sites, with Chrome having Malware Protection - as the upper-hand.

Microsoft Edge is early days and lacks any form of extension support - although an update is reported to bring those features at a later date. Again, if you no longer need or use Internet Explorer, it can be disabled via the Windows Features (reboot required).

As for security set-up, Windows Defender provide a good level of protection for non-click-happy users.

Don't perform any registry cleanups using glary's utilities. Instead of Dell backup windows backup is better since its integrate to OS itself and of course lesser apps means less clutter. A utility like sphinx-soft FW control gives more control which apps connect to internet and not to connect. Ccleaner will perform better job.

I used M Edge the past week, change to Explorer 11 to compare each one. You have a choice in 'Settings', might take me a few weeks to settle on one. :cool: I'm trying out 'Shadow Defender' for the 30 day free ride too.

Windows Defender, Windows SmartScreen, and Windows Firewall are already fine at your stage; since you are plan to have SD then its totally fine already. (alternatives to consider is Toolwiz Time Freeze)

Create a system backup for any issues might occur.

Other on demand scanners can keep to your USB in use as in case of emergency.
