Config looks good to me other then i would add an Adblocker to Google Chrome, like Ublock Origin.
I would focus on learning safer surfing habits more then worrying about adding additional security, which there are tons to learn in this forum.

Edit: after it being pointed out, as i overlooked it, i would fully recommend never testing malware on your main PC without some sort of virtualization, like Vmware or Virtualbox.

Simple and light config.
I have a couple of suggestions.
Don't test on your host pc malware.
You should do it using a virtual machine like Virtual Box or while using light virtualization software like Shadow Defender.
Add another on demand scanner like Zemana Anti-malware or Emsisoft Emergency Kit (both free) in MBAM misses something.
Thanks for sharing your config.

Your config cannot be secure when testing malware on your host machine.
Your config is good and I agree with the suggestions above.
With an infection within the last 3 months I might look at browsing habits and what you are clicking more so than the security programs in place.
Thanks for sharing your config :)

Pretty fine configuration at all, likely expand some tools like on demand scanners.

You may use Sandboxie or mentioned virtualization program for safe keeping.

Add adblocker for your browser. (Adguard or Ublock Origin)

My advice is to test malwares and viruses on a virtual environment such as VirtualBox or VMWare (if you test malwares on host is really dangerous for your personal data and files, but also for sensitive information and the entire system). You can also use Shadow Defender. Add ZAM Free and HTTPS Everywhere, Disconnect and uBlock Origin.

Thanks for sharing.
