I have made some changes to my last configuration as some softwares were causing issues.
1. Removed comodo firewall slowing down internet speed and creating issues with f secure.
2. Removed Macrium Reflect, caused problem with windows booting after recovery.
Some other minor changes and also hardened windows settings with syshardener portable. Please suggest if i need anything else to this config.

How do like ZAF? I've read it's difficult to uninstall/rid of the trash afterwards. Also, please specify SysHardener in custom settings. Why no UAC? Nice setup otherwise. (y)
Thanks for your view.
1. I didn't find ZAF difficult to uninstall as i installed it on other laptop with Avast free but uninstalled it as i got kaspersky 3 months trial no trash was left with geek uninstaller.
2. It takes time to dim my laptop screen. It is UAC enabled. Please check both settings are same but second one doesn't dim desktop.

OK, I never realized that part of the setting description in UAC.
