    • Firewall: you have on but not specified

    My advice:
    • Place state which Firewall Program or compliment you're using for you system and update
    • Add Emsisoft Browser Security to web browser
    • Your choice if you like to add Netcraft to counter Phishing pages

    Nothing more to add, very like and very sufficient. Thanks for sharing.
