    Some old-timer Wilders' members will love you over there for switching back to W7. You ought to be able to make it work after MS ends support. Good choice with Aomei, IMO. If you're concerned with performance and protection, you might consider Hard_Configurator, because it has special W7 profiles. In which case, you might dispense with Emsi. Check out Wilders to see others' experience with unsupported OSs.

    yes you are right. i found that windows 7 is the most stable windows and bloat free. i plan to upgrade when end of life cycle as i want to keep my OS updated but for now windows is doing well
    i will take a look on hard_configurator thanks for your suggestion

    All 4 layers are covered:
    • Firewall: Windows Default
    • Realtime etc: Malwarebytes, Emsisoft
    • Web Browser: Emsisoft, Bitdefender (need to be removed), uBlock
    • Backup: Aomei
    Other advice:
    • Remove Bitdefender Trafficlight from Chrome, this is not needed since you have Emsisoft Browser Security
    • I'd stick to one the realtime protection you have out of Emsisoft Antimalware and MBAM Premium, minimal overkill
    • Consider adding Scriptsafe to web browser
    Nice choice on having PatchMyPC as a system utility, fantastic to fill a security hole of updating software. When I used this, I didn't realise Malwarebytes needed updating, thanks for sharing.
