    @Purshu_Pro: For sure besides on the free storage offers, is the privacy implementation which the encryption is stronger than typically SSL.*

    *Mentioned earlier by the OP, you may check the link on the difference.

    2016 Update

    Removed :
    • ESET Smart Security 9
    • Microsoft Office 2016 Preview
    • PotPlayer
    • FL Studio
    • Virtual DJ
    Added :
    • Zemana Antimalware Premium
    • WPS Office 2015 Premium (Business Edition)
    Actually noticed that I don't need ESET anymore... It was relatively hard decision as I used it for years without alternatives. Zemana will surely catch if Defender misses something, but knowing my habits the sensitive spots in my system can come from infected USB drives or the web. Chrome and uBlock origin protected me well for quite of time without ESET's Web Protection had time to intervene. Windows Smart Screen will jump in if something unrecognized tries to run, but I highly doubt it could happen to me.
    WPS Office satisfies my needs for creating and manipulating documents, so MS Office was removed. Premium license got from GOTD.
    All audio and video material is in hands of MPC HC now. Light, simple, but with comprehensive set of features and options, I love it.
    At this schedule at hospital really no time for music production so FL Studio and Virtual DJ removed. Important stuff encrypted and saved to MEGA, second backup medium is my external HDD.

    Decided to do a fresh Windows install today, and these are the changes. :) After reinstalling all these programs, a new system backup image was created with Acronis True Image (from my Bootable USB). Image highly compressed and encrypted weights 4.32 GB. Yes it can fit on single DVD :cool:

    Thanks for reading :)

    @BoraMurdar

    Well structured update, and the core changes to mainline security software were accurate.
    I believe every advanced or above-average user has come to the realization that fully-fledged security suites become more and more redundant with every small security mechanism that is added to the overall configuration: Such as the ad-blocker plugins, which you mentioned, that have evolved to block malicious domains as well, rendering external filters virtually redundant.

    That imaging too... Acronis sure does a fine job. Makes me want to reconsider my current thought of dropping it as my backup tool for Paragon B&R...
    Maybe, I won't... Just maybe. :D

    Yes @DracusNarcrym , Acronis actually never failed me, in opposite of AOMEI, EaseUS and Macrium which can freeze sometimes doing backup. But maybe it just was on my machine. Used Paragon Backup & Recovery Compact in the past just for the test, hated the time it took to load the drivers and UI to show up, as I always do the "cold" backup and recovery, from bootable usb or cd.
    I cannot recall correctly but I think that Acronis and Paragon imaging time were tied but Acronis won in recovery process...or vice versa :D
    Anyway, TrueImage made my backup for roughly 10min, compressing the 11.5 GB into 4.32 GB :)

    Just an update to new Config System. Got back ESET Smart Security 9... Only reason for getting back to it - It's way faster than Windows Defender in Windows 10 among other objective reasons (it's detection rate, time consumed in removing malware, etc)

    Ransomeware will just re-encrypt the encrypted files, making them unusable like any other file you have. Best way to prevent ransomware is to use access restriction/ anti-ransom and backup. The config looks really secure @BoraMurdar .

    @BoraMurdar Is Zemana Anti-Malware Premium used in real-time or just on-demand?

    If I am not wrong from what I am reading on their website, it is has an access restriction additional feature to the AES -256 encryption.
