Strong configuration, you've got everything covered. I'm curious on how WD+VoodooShield performs? Thanks for sharing.
i am using this combo for about six months and from time to time i had some glitches like sometime voodoosheild caused a BSOD error or it interfered with window updates but it doesn't interfered with window defender or smartscreen or UAC so i must say it is a best Combo one can had bcz all problems came from voodoosheild side and they are also fixed by the developer.

Nicely setup!
Why not add some Firewall control like Binisoft to get more control of Windows FW and prevent unauthorized entries etc.
FileHippo App Manager and PatchMyPC together.. any reason?

Actually I have tried WFC in the past but i rarely feel the need to block certain soft coz i moslty use the well known soft all the time so it reduces the headache and for me default WF is fine to me as i don't usually make a lot of rules and the use of two app updaters is i have some softs like potplayer, startup delayer etc which are not available on Filehippo so i use PatchMYPC.

That's totally understandable. Creating rules can be as much of headache as paranoid it sounds.
But a control can prevent cases where some rogue or normal apps try to add their own exception in WindowsFW without hinting. If that app is malicious, a Trojan or so, that's unfortunate..
There are also some FWs available that can be easily trained without those black and white rules-creation efforts, covering all processes.
