    Hi. I'm new here.
    This is my "poor" security-configuration.
    I'm not very skilled about PC security, so I accept any help to improve my security.
    Thanks.

    Why you don't upgrade Windows 10 to the latest version, Fall Creators Update ? Update it as soon as you can because Windows 10 FCU include some security and quality improvements.
    Fill the form completely, I saw that you didn't fill some of the required fields !.
    Follow the @Captain Awesome suggestions above, Thanks for sharing your config :)

    KIS 2018 is the great supervisor of your configuration, and it provides a very good safety.
    You can add EEK or ZAM free just as a second opinion scanner.
    Very important is to safeguard your data using a good backup/restore plan, Macrium Reflect free (or paid) is an excellent choice.
    Thanks for sharing! :)

    Please complete the fields properly. Consider:
    - On demand scanners like Zemana
    - Content blockers like uBlock Origin
    - Backup software like Macrium Reflect Free
    - Updating to the last version of Windows 10
    - Tweaking Kaspersky. You have one of the most powerful AVs in the world, why not play a bit with it? :)
    Thanks for sharing.

    Please fill in all thread fields.

    Add ZAM Free and EEK or NPE.

    What browser do you use? I suggest Chrome with uBlock Origin and HTTPS Everywhere.

    Add Sandboxie Free (and use it while browsing to have more protection.)

    Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for your answers.
    So, mainly I need to add an On-demand scanner and a Backup Software.
    I have thought about HitmanPro or EEK, but on Backup software, what's better?.

    Macrium Reflect Free or AOMEI Backupper, both have free versions and are reliable...
