Care to elaborate more than "PWs are stored in brainnexus.exe"?
My brain remembers all the PWs. Having a photographic memory is great. :p

Edit: never forgotten a password for any account in over 7 years.

I am still running SysHardener.

How did you specifically go around mixing SysHardener with Hard_configurator? I've got a thread open about using them two together but it seems only for the intelligent and skilled people

I don't use the Designated File Types in Hard_Configure, this is dealt with using Syshardener, I believe where the key lays is understanding what works better in either program. In Hard Configuer I use: No Powershell Exec Hard Configuer seems to have a better way of reducing the attack surface on this option then Syshardener. Block Sponsors/More SRP are off due to shortcuts/taskbar shortcuts not working as they should. For File Type Extensions I find Syshardener easier to use. Syshardener can also disable unused Windows Services which could be use to exploit the system, some of these aren't touched (read below).

With Hard_Configure you have the option to Run Everything through Smartscreen which is amazing.

One thing to note is not to treat Syshardener like a 75 option swiss army knife, you're only looking for things to go wrong.

How complex are ALL the memorised passwords (a-z, A-Z, 0-9 and Symbols, Readable)?

For disabling unused services, the best configurator is probably ESO:
Easy Service Optimizer v1.2

When using SysHardener to block file extensions you cannot:
  1. block in the Userspace files with some dangerous extensions like: chm, cmd, cpl, msc, msp, mst, settingcontent-ms, URL, etc.;
  2. most extensions from SysHardener are blocked anyway by SRP in the Userspace even when you have empty SRP DFT list: bat, js, jse, vbs, vbe, wsf, wsh;
  3. you cannot open/run files with blocked extensions even if they are located in the safe location (Program Files);
  4. you cannot whitelist files with blocked extensions;
  5. you cannot use the Hard_Configurator Log, to see the paths of blocked files by extension.
