Hello MT world,

I am not so paranoid about the security of my digital life, All in one, we have just to keep one eye about what we do on the Internet, trust & Ignorance are the most dangerous backdoors.

The golden rule : there is nothing in the Internet, that you can put your trust in...don't be a victim, use your brain, Learn, Act, Share... this is the power of our forum : malwaretips.com.


Best regards.

Even if you're '..not so paranoid', sandboxing your browser with Sanboxie free www.sandboxie.com can be a sensible option.:)
Also, theirs is a motto similar to that of your configuration, "Trust No Program"!:D Thanks for sharing too!;)

Edit:
I will give it a try , thank you for your precious advice :p
You're welcome @Kalimirro . I wanted to mention one fact about browsing while contained in a sandbox. It's protection likewise renders all changes made (added extensions & browser updates) temporary, lasting only until the sandbox and all it's contents are deleted. Therefore changes you wish to keep must be made without sand-boxing. It's also a preferred way to test drive add-on extensions before deciding whether to commit to keeping those you like!:D

I suggest you to keep another back-up and recovery solution other than the Windows' in-built one as it can be easily deleted/broken by malware these days.
Hi! I agree 100%. Can you recommend a 3rd party back up image program. I see that you did not mention one, so I won't.
Window's in-built leaves a whole lot to be desired IMHO. It sure can't contend with a 3rd party program.
It's very simple to use, but it's very simple and that's not good enough for me:rolleyes:

Paragon Backup and Recovery 2014 Free Edition seems to be one of the favorite software here on Malwaretips for that :

I like your configuration. "Trust No One" never gets old. Do you ever think about "Carrying a Big Stick"?:D

For added privacy, Chrome has a built in third-party cookie blocker.
Here's how to set it:
  1. Click the Chrome menu
    on the browser toolbar.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Click Show advanced settings.
  4. In the "Privacy" section, click the Content settings button. Select "Block third-party cookies and site data"
    • After this you'll see
      in the address bar whenever a cookie has been blocked.
    • You may also mark the circle "Keep site data only until browser is closed".
