Welcome to my setup for this year, I wasn't going to post but I thought why not. Not much has changed from the other one apart from in depth explanations in most categories. The main aim of this setup was to be light as possible with the strongest protection I could muster, twinned with very good browsing habits.

Something brand new to my config is my device specs, enjoy them :p

Hope you all like my config, feel free to leave a reply and/or constructive feedback. Happy New Year as well!

Very nice setup!
I do like to ask about:
Forticlient: Any performance issues or slowdowns while browsing the net or filecopying, archiving/unarchiving? Does it do many i/o writes(crucial
for SSD i think), how about CPU usage?
Vuze: Is it java-based torrent client? Im using qbittorrent.
Firewall: Are you using default windows firewall or a third party firewall software that uses windows firewall? Maybe you want to run Atelier Firewall test(its signed, safe to run, tho some AVs blocks it even its signed). Test 1-3 are basic firewall test that any firewall should pass. Test 4-6 are more like advanced techniques to get an access to internet. Test 4-6 are kind of a combined Firewall+HIPS test. Any malware can do that also, so i suggest to add HIPS component to your setup.
And there might be a situation that you dont know that some malware is lurkin inside your computer and using above methods(test 4-6) to get an internet access. That is why keystroke encryption comes to play. I think.

But thanks for these:
Scriptsafe - Unwanted content, blocking of scripts on websites
Trace - Overall website privacy + higher domain levels blocked
Click n Clean - Set to wipe all data on browser exit
Poper Blocker - Primarily for successful blockage of Pop Ups

Have to test those!
Regards,
-sepik

Forticlient: no performance issues or slowdowns at all!
Vuze: this is java based
Firewall: only using WIndow Firewall
HIPS: what software do you recommend I should use to add for HIPS for my setup?

No problem, have a test with them and see what you think about the extension.

lol i have 90% anonymity just by using 1 VPN and 3 extensions, and i lost 10% because my system time is different than my IP address time (they guess im under a VPN). LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL.


Screenshot_2019-01-24 How to find and check my IP address.png


Skill is all.
