I suggest some programs for on-demand scanning such as Emsisoft Kit, Zemana antimalware, Norton Power Eraser, and Hitman pro.
Thanks for sharing(y)

My advice:
  • Add ZAM Free 3.0 & Emsisoft Emergency Kit and/or Norton Power Eraser
That's all for the advice, the rest is good.

I don't want to be rude, but what aforementioned software can do which ESET lacks ?
I have used KTS for years, never had a problem. Had to replace it because of my old system.

Light, effective and no-nonsense configuration. Just practice safe habits and you're good to go. You can try out KeyScrambler. I'm using it alongwith ESET IS and it encrypts keystrokes in your browsers(best of all it's free).:)

Hello, I would use also Google Drive for reliable data backup.

Thanks for sharing.
Yes, As a matter of fact I use, Not google drive but dropbox/onedrive through boxcryotor/cryptomator for my Keepass and other important data sync across my Android devices.

I will give a try. But I do not visit dodgy websites whatsoever on my this system, Also I use ESET banking protection while for banking stuff. And my emails are either 2FA protected or password less (through microsoft authenticator), Not to mention my firewall is configured for a handful of programs to communicate. So yeah. I think that's it.

Added : Vera Crypt, Boxcryptor, Cryptormator, AllDup, OneDrive and Dropbox. Because forgot to mention while creating thread. I don't know which category they fall to in security config, however i added to Utilities.
