It is a new desktop but not too strong ! I think firewall and antivirus are enough for the use i do.
Maybe i will replace norton with an antimalware in pro version in the future.Will see !

The config looks fine. It might be a little risky disabling UAC, but I am sure if you disabled it, you must know what you are doing.
If you ever have to use suspicious websites or files, you can use Sandboxie which is a free sandbox and will complement a system with disabled UAC.

On a separate note, how do you like outpost firewall?

I would enable UAC
Add some on demand scanners such as Malwarebytes Antimalware,Hitman Pro,Herd Protect,Emsisoft Emergency Kit,etc.
Chrome extension uBlock or AdBlock +
CCleaner or Privazer if not already installed.
Looks good!! Thanks for sharing your config :)

Fine configuration there, Norton AV is pretty good security program as long you are engage a lot from online matters caused their Download Insight will help you much (cloud). ;)

Enabled UAC again.Haven't dealt with the settings of the outpost a lot and it is quite loose right now.A very nice tool and i'm feeling obliged to learn how to configure it.Thanks for remined me important things :D

Just like "K Atari" you remined me to take care important things about safety.Don't know if the antibanner tool of outpost firewall is doing the same job like AdBlock+,assuming not i will participate for the Adguard contest.Thank you for your advises.

I think i don't need Adguard.KIS has an anti banner an anti tracker and MBAM has the malicious website protection.Am i right ?

The anti-banner is more likely linked to detect any possible malicious content where a website may bundled. Not totally the overall blocking feature like those adblockers mentioned.
