Hello,this is my current setup (for today at last!! xD)
You may set UAC to Always Notify.
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 Free.
A PassWord Manager would be welcome also.
Please kindly reflect Your changes editing Your config, and announcing them here, thanks for sharing
With backup, regardless if there is no data on there, you can still make a Image Backup encase something goes wrong, you can backup all your steam, games etc, and load it back quickly.What is your reason to use Web-Protection/Web-filtering by Forticlient instead of using Web-Shield by Avast?
Forticlient probably has more effective web-filtering but you are more risky running into incompatibility issues between Avast and Forticlient...
Great choiceIn this way all web sites with good reputation are allowed (unrated,etc, blocked by default), there is no web protection in my opinion can be compared with this feature. I consider like a default deny web protection approach, only trusted site allowed. There is no incompatibility with avast with only file protection
I use Macrium for backup daily, so i am covered with data (that for me is not so important). Full backup on sunday, differential others days. How i replied on other thread, i use 2 local disk 1 for S.O. 1 for backup. So i can restore from normal Windows access, from wim image if my windows become inaccessible, and if i have to format i install windows again and macrium and recover from backup partition.As i think you know you can choose what components you wish to install at the installation process, he may not have the Web Shield component installed or it maybe turn off, the first would element any issues between the two. Same process can be done with Forticlient, you can choose which components you want installed, but I have a feeling you already this as you're knowledgeable on this aspect.

- Smart HTTPS isn't needed as all main website employ HTTPS as standard, even MWT has HTTPS by default
- Ghostery isn't needed if you already have uBlock Origin, would essentially be blocked the same ads & trackers whilst talking up more CPU
- Poper Blocker is a privacy nightmare but this is optional if you wish to keep this or not
Everything else to me looks decent, ty for sharing.
I'm very tired and misread you, you don't have poper blocker on there, I do apologies.I use Macrium for backup daily, so i am covered with data (that for me are not so important).

Some sites i use for streams work only on http so i just whitelist to use http and force https on rest.
I may wrong but i read in this site ghostery have some sort of autolearn mechanism for block tracker and pubblicity, so i disabled all them by default (with option to block all new trackers).
Ublock origin is with 0 filters just for some cosmetics errors made by ghostery.
I am talking of popup blocker strict not poper blocker, are u sure we are talking the same product?
DonePlease consider switching to a Standard User Account.
Check this out and happy learningHehe dont worry Ldogg,
Honestly if i use ublock with all filters enabled there are always much more banners, ads, then just with ghostery.

If i understand correctly ghostery have some sort of heuristics (in some way better then privacy badger) for block tracking. Or i am wrong?
Ah alright sir, i think AdGuard is right for you its easy to use it. disable uBlock Origin and install AdGuard and see if they block ads, banner, etcThk u, but i dont like much to use those custom rules, many site use third party items, so make 50x or more rules is not what i am looking for, is the same reason why i dont use noscript, even if it can give more granular control. The extensions i use give me a perfect results without much work.
