Hi there! I am from UK:) I am a fan of this forum for a long time. I have referred many threads from this forums. A huge thanks to all forum members for solving my problems and show me how to safely test malware. A thanks especially to Umbra Polaris for his thread to show me how to setup Webroot alongside another av.

My security softwares configuration is :

1. Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 (fully updated).

2. Kaspersky Firewall.

3. Emsisoft Nai-Malware configured as companion AV.

4. Malwarebytes 2.1.6 (full scans done weekly and quick scans done on a daily basis).

5. Windows 8.1 Pro Update 3 (always updated and UAC enabled).

6. Router config changed to OpenDNS for maximum protection.

7. EMET 5.2 with maximum security settings.

8. F-Secure Freedome and Cyberghost VPN used alternatively.

9. Daily scans done with Hitman Pro, Zemana Antimalware, Herdprotect and EEK.

10.Computer cleaned with Ccleaner and PrivaZer on daily basis.

11.Malware testing done on Windows 7(running in Oracle Virtualbox and up-to-date) and virtualised in Sandboxie.

12.Adguard extension for blocking ads in browser, Ghostery to disable trackers and Avast! Online Security and Webroot Online Security for web protection.

13.nCrypted cCloud used to encrypt important files in Dropbox, Google Drive and OneDrive.

14.Lastpass for storing passwords online and F-Secure Key for storing offline(in case it is needed).

15.Daily backups with Acronis True Image 2015 to external HDD and with iDrive to the cloud.

I hope to improve security with more software and solutions:).

Update 17/5/15: Changed main AV from avast! IS to Kaspersky IS 2015.
Changed Webroot to Emsisoft Anti Malware.
Changed avast! Secure DNS to OpenDNS.

Nice update, @Harish_Shan23! Make sure you have a backup image of a clean state of your system (created with Macrium Reflect Free), so that you can use the backup image in order to restore that clean state in case of a malware infection or software malfunction.

Be sure to post your configuration in a separare, dedicated thread in the following forum too:
