    All the layers are covered, nothing to add in my view.

    I suggest adding avira browser safety and this filter to your adguard
    https://hosts-file.net/emd.txt
    enable malware domain in adguard

    a popup blocker for example: poper blocker

    Looks Good! Aside from the fact you are obviously visiting some shady sites.
    Thanks for sharing your config :)

    Not sure, I've tested Avast HMA with Comodo Firewall: HIPS a Autosandbox disabled.
    I preferred to entrust the processes management just to Avast because I don't know how a sandboxed process could be managed in HMA by Avast.
    Maybe someone here has tried the configuration you mean.

    they worked fine. I was using them for a while

    however, I left CF due to BSODs

    I had had a few since I installed CF. It may not happen for some people but for others, CF may cause BSODs.
