Hi @Bill Smith.

Can You edit Your config and fill in some additional security risky fields:
  • Windows UAC settings?
  • Browser(s) and extensions: add uBlock Origing extension.
  • Periodic malware scanners: Norton Power Eraser, EmsiSoft Emergency Kit.
  • Password manager?
  • File and Photo backup? Any cloud service to back up?
  • System recovery? A full system image backup solution would be welcome, specially against ransomware malware attacks.

Thanks for sharing :)
