Nice to see you use Trend Micro Online scanner. Also something that you could add to your browsers, HTTPS Everywhere.

Very nice Config, Any plans to upgrade your Windows XP PC?

Sure. When Microsoft stopped support for XP SP3. There's still about a year if I'm not mistaken.

You should enable UAC and set it at max. You have an HIPS so it cost nothing to enable UAC, just another popup to answer.

Yes, unfortunately. False positive detection has in all the latest versions. A lot less, but still there. The developers of this program very quickly respond to the sent a report of FPs and fix it. Although there are false positives, this application will successfully prevent of infection system from a variety of malicious ”trigger “. These are my experiences.
