Hello everyone. This is my current config. It's not final. I just recently upgraded to Win 10 once the EOL for 7 was getting real close and am going through my config and researching what's best for each area. Happy to hear any suggestions.

As for the firewall, I was running Comodo previously but am trying out Glasswire + SecureAPlus. Glasswire's ok for firewall but Comodo's HIPS was better than SecureAPlus. And I liked Comodo's virtualization support. Thinking of going back.

Welcome :)

You may set UAC to Always Modify. Also You may use tools such as Hard_Conbfigurator (@Andy Ful) or NVT SysHardener to harden Your system.

In Data BackUp, consider also to run manual backups of important data to external devices, and/or in cloud services.

In Virus and Malware Removal Tools, You may add EmsiSoft Emergengy Kit and HitManPro.

A PassWord Manager would be welcome also.

Please kindly reflect Your changes editing Your config, and announcing them here, thanks for sharing :)
