    Very good configuration, just consider to have system image snapshots when system restore fails.

    Or try Rollback RX for system restore alternative.

    Nice configurtion, I just recommend you to use uBlock Origin or Adguard..instead of AdblockPlus.
    Thanks :)

    Do you have the real-time modules activated in Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium, or disabled?

    MBAE isn't an on-demand scanner and only works in real-time, you can add it to Real-Time Protection instead. (How-to)

    You may add Malwarebytes Anti-Malware as your on demand scanner as your another scanner reference but other than that its already a fine configuration. ;)

    Thanks!

    I know that Malwarebytes is much better, but what's wrong with herdProtect?

    @Cerberus: There's nothing on Herdprotect, you just add another scanner with unique engine + low FP as possible. (Malwarebytes Anti-Malware)

    Zemana set on RT is not needed when you have EAM + WSA, better let it OD.

    you need a system backup.

    Hello @Cerberus, you've quite an impressive configuration. I don't think I'd completely missed seeing it when first posted, ..but I was probably (then) struggling to keep my eyeso_O open!:rolleyes::p
    I'd particularly liked your practice of two-step authorization, and your exemplary scores on LastPass' challenge gives me something to shoot for too!:D

    To set Chrome's built-in blocker (for third party cookies).
    1. Choose settings, and scroll down to "Show advanced settings".
    2. Under "Privacy" <click> the "Content Settings" button.
    3. Check the box beside "Block third-party cookies and site data".
    • Additionally, you may choose to mark the circle "Keep site data only until end of session"
    Thank you for sharing!:)

    You could use a backup solution, maybe Macium Reflect or Aomei Backupper both are free and reliable solutions. ;)

    I've got rid of ESET Online Scanner and replaced it with Zemana AntiMalware. Real Time Protection is set to OFF. I've also added AOMEI Backupper.

    Thank you!
    Many thanks. I've set Chrome's built-in blocker to block third-party cookies and site data. I did not know about this feature, so thanks again for the tip.
    I've added Aomei Backupper. Thank you!
