Quite good setup. I would add some on-demand scanners like Emsisoft emergency kit, herdprotect, Hitman Pro... There are lots of them so check some of them out!
I would also recommend adding Ccleaner or something similar.
About the firewall. You have Bitdefender internet security installed which contains a firewall, so no need for something else right now.

i think emsisoft has a lot of false alarm i used it once a time, i'm using heimdal pro for 6 month license with bit defender int security,
i'm using win utilities for the cleaning the system, by the way of course i'm not going to using other firewall but i just wondered,
i saw on matousec the comodo firewall outpost and private firewalls are the best, right ?

Comodo firewall is very good, because it is also very good against unknown threats. Private firewall is indeed also a good choice but needs some more configuration. I don't have experience with outpost, but I have heard that it is indeed not bad. Another good free firewall is the one from ZoneAlarm.

hmm i think kaspersky firewall is better than others, i trust the russian peoples about software i dont know why exactly but i just trust them,
and i used avira free about 1 month i did not liked it at all, i used bullguard security 2014 i bought router airties 5433 it comes free with it,
it was bloatware, very high cpu usage by the way my cpu is i7 3770 and adata xpg900 256 gb ssd i'm using it, i were shocked,

bit defender using 250-300mb right now eset were 100mb, i think kaspersky is the most stable antivirus since my childhood lol,
i'm just 25

thanks for sharing your configuration, Ableton Suite quit interesting (expensive) for composing music, but you do clean your Windows after surfing the net and which software you use.

If you have Bitdefender Internet Security, then you already have a third-party Firewall. If you want to remain with Bitdefender, downgrading to Antivirus Plus (Uninstall BTS first) and using another firewall is advised. Disabling the firewall component may cause conflicts with other installed security software.

BIS 2016 should be fine as was already pointed out it has a firewall.If you like Kaspersky then KIS 2016 would be an option also.
I would consider some on demand scanners
CCleaner or Privazer are more than enough
Consider uBlock origin in place of ABD and HTTPS Everywhere in Chrome
An additional browser as a back up is also something to consider

For Firewall the strongest contender is indeed Comodo Firewall follow by Private Firewall.

Outpost Firewall is good and worth to try which tolerable for configuration complex but for starter go to Zonealarm.

Overall a good configuration already. Try to explore more on Bitdefender's Firewall as you use the suite.

Hello, icerulez, and thank you for sharing your configuration.
After reading your joy with Privazer, I have just downloaded the latest portable version, & wanted to suggest something I have often read advised; and that is to stop the first (or subsequent) scan in order to uncheck the box "Registrys". Although Privazer backs up registrys, in my opinion it is safer to leave them alone. I'm doing it now!:D Yes, I agree. exterminator20 recommends great software!:cool:

How do you like Windows 10?o_O I wonder as I am still using 8.1.;) :):)

Thanks for the encouragement.:) My next move shall be to add an external hdd in the event "Rome" :eek:catches fire, lol!:D
I wouldn't toss CCleaner into the trash just yet as we can consider Privazer to provide the fine detail cleaning one performs upon a car (which takes longer) while CCleaner is the (quicker) spray which safely washes all the surface dirt & dust away!:)
