    My advice:
    • Add Configure Defender to get the best out of your realtime protection with Window Defender
    • Add a Windows Firewall Platform software such TinyWall or Malwarebytes Window Firewall Control (Tinywall is ever so light on the system as well, installation file is less than 2MB)
    • With data backup, use a backup solution such as Macrium Reflect or EaseUS ToDo Backup Free, you can also use a cloud component for this in Dropbox or Google Drive

    Everything is fairly spot on and love the simplicity of your machine! I will note well done for using Syshardener, you can also benefit from using the Window Firewall rules within the settings of this program too.

    Thanks for sharing a great config with MWT!

    Looks good. Nice and simple.

    I'm curious if Windows imaging has worked well for you in the past? Some users say they won't rely on it. I've never had to use it.
    Windows imaging has been greatly improved its time for everyone to check windows system image backup as Microsoft has greatly improved a lot a big shout out to Microsft for making Windows 10 a great and enjoyable experience.


    thanks and regards

    yes i've followed several guides to configure Defender with advanced setting and can make it much more robust.

    Will definitely consider Tinywall , I might have to learn how to operate it as I'm fairly New to this software.

    Oh will defintely do it., I 've Onedrive 1TB access for students so i think i'll0 use it.

    Thank you so much for your tip.

    Thanks and Regards

    There are some complaints from users in forums about W10 Image System BackUp, saying it is broken, so I would consider also to use a 3rd party tool such as Macrium or AOMEI...

    Also consider to use some second opinion scanner as on demand: HitMan.Pro Free, ZAM Free, MalwareBytes Free, even tweaking WD with NVT SH + OSA, there is always a chance to get undetected threats...

    Thank for sharing :giggle:
