    Staff Notes

    This setup configuration is not recommended for most users.
    We don't recommend that you copy this setup for your system unless you understand the security implications. We cannot not be held responsible for problems that may occur to your device by using this security setup.

    This setup configuration doesn't have a backup plan. We strongly recommend to add a backup solution for your data so that you can restore it in the case of an emergency.
    Backing up allows the recovery of data that has been lost due of a malware attack (eg. ransomware) or a hard disk crash. In such events you might lose family photos, your music collection, documents, or financial data. Backups are fast and simple to perform so it should be done on a regular basis.

    I did fresh install to Windows 10 Pro 1809 x64 Build 17763.253 last saturday
    Install testing Kaspersky Internet Security 2019 19.0.0.1088 (trial 30 days), the reason i'm on trial for testing av performance and becuz i'm applying for GA from here MalwareTips Giveaway - Kaspersky Internet Security Giveaway. And i like it,. lucky or not from that GA i think i will keep using this KIS.

    This what i like from Kaspersky, When im doing cryptocurrency mining i can add that application connection rules to specific ip only

    Screenshot (8).png


    and deny read/write access to os and personal data

    Screenshot (9).png


    also i did this
    * Windows bloatware removed with this script Sycnex/Windows10Debloater
    * harden Windows settings with SysHardener v1.5 Harden Windows Settings with SysHardener | NoVirusThanks
    * o&o privacy and apply all app recommended setting
    * add AppCheck Anti-Ransomware (Free version) 2.5.19.1 and set real time , mbr and exploit protection on
    * add AOMEI Backupper free version to sync my document folder (weekly). I'm not connecting my backup hdd 24/7 because its my only backup lol

    I was installing Zemana AntiMalware 3.0 Beta, but i removed because there is no real time protection on that version, and i cant see on demand scan for specific files on windows content menu.

    I'm often mining cryptocurrency., i'm looking for free version for sandbox program if anyone know.

    Thanks for help
