I was infected last time with (JS Bondat -whole maintenance section was infected actually) that Avast cannot remove cure. It took Emsisoft Kit to remove it so I add that now. Might have spread from office usb so I used Bitdefender Immunizer. I am tempted to move to Avira again but the free one has no firewall. I am thinking of Comodo firewall but its been long while since I used it. Privatefirewall not updated now :( I think I'll just use up the license and after that change setup.

Have you given any thought into upgrading to Windows 10?
Nice secure config! Thanks for sharing it with us :)

Got infected when the setup was not what I posted. This is a new setup from last week.)

Thanks for tips guys! Much obliged! I have given some thought on Windows 10 but my internet is unstable so the large download is off. That is also the reason I stayed away from the free upgrade.

Another thing, you can turn off Autoplay in the computer which will save you for almost 99% of autorun-attacks.
--Forgot to mention that. When I change the setup I also did that ;)
