Update 26/01/2019
I'm going to test this lightweight configuration:
  • Panda Dome Free (the lightest free AV I have found)
  • K9 web protection (very light web filtering SW)
  • Hard_Configurator with Win10 Recomm. Enhanc. Conf. (great tool to apply Windows built-in default-deny settings)
  • Chromium portable instead of Firefox (I switched to Firefox because it was lighter than Chromium, but now it seems it's the other way around...)
So far, so good, the PC is very responsive and quiet :)

Very good additions to your setup. You have all the 3 computing layers covered in Firewall, AV & Backup.

You could try out slimjet, its probably lightest browser since ie but i dont know about privacy
The problem with Chromium-based browsers is that they always update later than Chromium itself

With H_C doubt you even need the antivirus:unsure:
Yeah, that's why I chosed the lightest, even if detection rate and protection against zero-day is not the best.
Plus, like this Windows Security Center won't complain ;)
