I have updated my config and here is my new one.

1. I posted my configuration last week and got a lot of bad feedback on it, especially about my "Windows Security Updates" not being enabled.
I have now turned them on and downloaded updates.
2. I have also uninstalled Zamana antilogger, as many forum member's feedback was it was "overkill" and "unnecessary" ,since I was already using Emsisoft Anti-malware and VoodooShield Pro.

Below is my new/present configuration.

Thanks to all who helped me get a better config for my machine.:)

@divinenews: as @Umbra said, You just had to edit Your former config and make the changes, so I will remove that one.

For "Virus and Malware Removal Tools", You may add: ZAM Free, Norton Power Eraser, HitMan.Pro Free and MalWareBytes 4 Windows Free.

Thanks for sharing Your config :giggle:
