    Nice configuration, thanks for sharing :)
    I'd like to remove AVG TuneUp because I don't see a real need for it.
    Ccleaner is more than enough, just my opinion.

    @ispx , @tim one ....... I know , for Iobit Programs I have 1 year licences so when they finish i will see what next, in fact IObit Uninstaler is not too bad. And for Reason Core i have 5 year license in giveaway (so it is pro version) but i use it just on demand from time to time beside my other Antimalware Softwares :). And for AVG PC TuneUp also have license but is here just extra program - I use mostly CCleaner Pro. :D

    You can remove WOT and also AVG Tune UP and Driver Booster.
    Consider backing up important data to an external drive also.
    Secure Windows 10 config! Thanks for sharing it :)

    Good config.

    From your extensions (uBlock Origin ; WOT ; Disconnect ; HTTPS Everywhere) I would keep only uBlock Origin.

    I don't trust WOT anymore after this: Mozilla and Google remove WOT extension from Store - gHacks Tech News

    What Disconnect does can be achieved in uBlock Origin (you can also enable Disconnects filters in uBlock Origin).
    There can be conflicts between the 2 extensions.

    HTTPS Everywhere has high memory usage and causes a sort of lag when browsing on my laptop so I uninstalled it.
    More and more sites are moving to HTTPS so it's not needed anymore IMO.
