    Great config!
    I think you should consider adding WFC to get good control of Windows FW.
    I always feel the need of the same, an important reason being that it's easy for some apps to add exception to Win FW during their installation. Rogueware and malware can take advantage of such cases. It provides other nice features too, limited in free version though.
    Rest looks neat :)

    Hello, nice config, only a thing, I would like to say that NVT-ERP, despite the fact it is a great product, the last update is 17 March 2014.
    Maybe this means nothing, but it could have unpatched vulnerabilities by putting you in a risky situation.
    Just my opinion.:)
    Security solutions, especially anti-malware, have to keep up with the evolving threat scenarios, no doubt.
    However, I think apps like NVT aren't commonly tested or targeted against their vulnerabilities, especially if they aren't being current and challenging to the bad guys out there.
    NVT has many amazing modules that can keep protecting Windows for long, even now and later, though a few need to be optimized or redevised to keep up with newer security requirements.
