  • Currently not using Sandboxie for browsers trying it for a month or so, although I'm using it to install software's in the sandbox for those software's I don't regularly use;
  • Had VS uninstalled still have a year in my current license like the AI and VT scanner, if not for AG would consider it my main protection. Really great for decision making maybe reinstall it after a month;
  • Also removed OSA as I'm using Appguard Hardened.xml;
  • HMPA already expired had no other option than MBAE;
  • CFW for monitoring connections, auto-sandbox is a bonus since removing OSA; and
  • Shadow defender for testing purposes.

It seems an overkill config:
CFW w/ CS settings;
Appguard [Hardened.xml/Protected];
MBAE[Beta]
I would keep CFW (CS's settings) or AppGuard... and remove MBAE...

You may also add EmsiSoft Emerg. Kit as on demand scan.

And consider also to run manual backups of important data to external devices.

A PassWord Manger is always welcome.

Thanks for sharing Your config :)

For Chrome extensions use the following in conjunction:

- Cookie Auto-Delete
- Netcraft - Comprehensive blocking of PUP sites
- Privacy Possum
- Scriptsafe or Script Defender
- Malwarebytes Extension or Windows Defender Browser Extension
- uBlock Origin or Nano Adblocker w/ Nano Defender as an alternative to AdGuard

Security:
- Syshardener 1.5 - complements WD & your system for further security enhancements
- Windscribe Free VPN

Rest of your configuration is spot on, thanks for sharing!

@LDogg Thanks for the suggestion...
Added a few of of your suggestion WD Browser for one. Can't recall which conflicted to Privacy Possum(HTTPS Everywhere or ScriptSafe) so I stopped using it, although testing it now with TBB. Switched from ScriptSafe to TBB just because its easy to use, and forgot to mention I'm using Adguard for Windows.

More than likely HTTPS Everywhere conflicted, as I don't use it. As I believe it to be redundant in 2018 :p
