Consider setting the User Access Control to "Always Notify", adding a second scanner like Zemana or Malwarebytes.
I'd also use UblockOrigin in Firefox :)
And if you're looking for some extra protection, consider for example Avira free instead of just using Windows Defender.

consider adding a second on-demand scanner and use a good program for backups like macrium or aoemi
Once in a while I scan with malwarebytes but I think the Emsisoft is better. I do backup with a HD partition

Once in a while I scan with malwarebytes. I don't like ublock, some pages are locked (antiadblock)

UAC to max
Chrome: HTTPS Everywhere, Ublock Origin
On demand : ZAM, Malwarebytes
Backups pls.
The first two have already been met, the third option, I use a HD partition as a backup and in the cloud as well. Already used Acronis image ... but I don't think it's relevant, I prefer the format of Windows and keep with some programs, games and others put on another partition.

Thank you all!

If uBlock Origin doesn't have a counter to it, maybe you can try using English Filters or Easylist without Element Hiding instead of Easylist or just ignore generic cosmetic filters or not parse cosmetic filters.
Some sites detect Adlbock gives to bypass with a script yes script extension works (YesScript), but it's annoying to have to be add blacklisted. Ghostery use I think lighter and still functional and allows some advertisements do not intrusive.

Hmm, that's odd, I haven't encountered that issue for a very very long time.
I use custom filters to help me out but even when I had it as default, I didn't have many issues with uBlock

I didn't have any problems. Are you sure you were using uBlock Origin and not uBlock? With uBlock filters enabled?
Alternatively to YesScript, you can just block inline scripts on the site using dynamic filtering.

I use Ublock origin, many sites have blockers of adblock like example site forbes.

Do you create system images, if not I would like to suggest Macrium Reflect, both free and reliable? ;)

I use uBlock origin and Forbes and Business Insider aren't able to pick it up. I get no ads or messages to disable adblock.
It's odd that you are getting such messages :/

Consider some type of system & data backup solution.
Consider adding an additional on demand scanner(s).
HTTPS Everywhere & uBlock Origin in Firefox.
Thanks for sharing your config :)

Maybe the uBlock Filters section are unchecked. Firefox saves the preferences of non-WebExtensions so you will probably still have the same results if it is reinstalled but you can reset it in the uBlock Origin settings page.
