Staff Notes

This setup configuration doesn't have a backup plan. We strongly recommend to add a backup solution for your data so that you can restore it in the case of an emergency.
Backing up allows the recovery of data that has been lost due of a malware attack (eg. ransomware) or a hard disk crash. In such events you might lose family photos, your music collection, documents, or financial data. Backups are fast and simple to perform so it should be done on a regular basis.


Level 28
4/4 layers are covered:
  • Firewall: Default
  • Web browser: uBo, WD Browser Protection
  • Backup: FreeFileSync & Google
  • Realtime & other: Window Defender
  • Additional layer
My advice:
  • Nothing else needed to be added, for Backup Solution you could add Macrium Reflect, Aomei Backupper or EaseUS ToDo Backup Free.

Thanks for sharing. Fantastic protection you have for your computer too!

I use System Hardener mostly to tweaked settings not provided by HC such as DEP for all programs, or other tweaks that can be done manually on windows 10, but I prefer the convenience of System Hardener.

I am thinking of adding Necraft Extension or replacing Windows Defender Browser Protection. Anything better than that?
