Nice configuration, but turn User Account Control to either Default or Always Notify, also state if you have Zemana Anti-Malware Free or Premium, if you have free it is just an on-demand scanner, not real-time protection.
You could also add other browser extensions like uBlock Origin, Ghostery, HTTPS Everywhere or Web of Trust
If you are fully comfortable with having UAC off, then by all means have it off. Just because it is off does not mean the user does not know what he/she is doing. However I have to ask, with your RT and On Demand protection, how did you get an infection less than a month ago?
Hi, before posting your configuration, please be sure to follow the rules: add your username to your title, for example: User's Security Config.
Anyway: only a suggestion, add a password manager, and enable UAC.
Step 1 - Turning off Visual Effects.
Step 2 - Turning off Windows 10 Data Collection.
Step 3 - Turning off Unnecessary Startup Items.
Step 4 - Turning off Unnecessary Services or Setting them to Manual.
Step 5 - Checking for and Removing Malware.
Step 6 - Regular HDD? Defrag it.
Step 7 - Windows 10 sounds.
Step 8 - Windows 10 updates.
Step 9 - Grab an SSD!
Step 10 - OPTIONAL - Disable Antivirus.
Step 11 - OPTIONAL - Turn off System Restore.
10th and 11th step is totally out of the question.
You're got some really nice real-time protection software there.
With Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit actively protecting your browsers from vulnerability exploits, there is little chance for malware to find a gateway to your PC.
Of course, make sure you practice safe surfing habits as much as possible, and you should never have to worry about any malware infection.
So far so good to your configuration, consider to have a backup browser in case of emergency.
With your favorite extensions you put including adblocker, in terms of backup you may expand by using the built in features of Windows for system image or 3rd party programs. The more the better you can access to revert any changes.
Hey I wanted to put this out here but I had to wipe my computer for the 2nd time since I got it on Black Friday. Is it a clash between Avast and Malwarebytes because both seem to use my CPU a lot more than anything.
