Looks good to me other then back ups needed not only for personal, but system as well.

I would like to suggest for a good free and reliable backup solution Macrium Reflect first and then as a good alternative Aomei Backupper. ;)

Remember backups are only slightly less important than a heartbeat. :)

You could choose to enable Trusted Applications Mode of KIS, so that you could ditch VS (and ZAM in realtime). But it's your call. Even me, I might choose similar to your combo, if I wanted to. :D

I think your config is a bit overkill. You can confidently remove zemana from the setup. According to my tests in malware hub, zemana could only protect the in system in 1/6 tests, 5 times the system was infected and 1 of them was heavily encrypted by ransomwares. Its realtime protection with pandora was extremely poor against 0-day malwares I would say. The scanner is top-notch

True, but I just use it for the scanner. For 0 Day malware HMPA and Voodoo Shield will protect me.

" Real-time Malware Protection: Kaspersky Internet Security, HMPA, Voodoo Shield, Zemana, Emsisoft AM. "
That's an ass load of over kill on a system and it's resources, layering to that extent can
actually cause more issues than it solves.
But if your happy, that's what matters, cool. ;)

EDIT: I just realized that this is a Laptop you have all of this running on WOW.
If you really want to extend the life of that laptop and have it breathe a sigh of relief,
Use EmsiSoft AM, and HMPA and save or delete the rest. You wont need Razors Game booster
with that config either ;) JMHO
I game on a DigitalStorm Custom Gaming PC and would not load it down like this,
much less a Laptop, and with your Specs you should not need game booster even for a game intensive as The Division, that tells you just how much you have burdened that thing with that config.

Yeah its alot, but thats only because I am trying to find what I like best. I have removed kaspersky and disabled realtime for zemana. Besides, my laptop uses desktop hardware, so you can call it a easily mobile desktop haha.

Why removed Kaspersky?
I am using Emsisoft Anti-Malware and Comodo Free to replace kaspersky. Comodo has a better firewall and is perfect for my config, as I do not rely on signatures, but rather behaviour blocking, firewalls, default-deny, and virtualization. Comodo gives me a better firewall, default-deny, and virtualization. I am using Emsisoft for BB, Realtime Signature protection, and a few other threats kaspersky would protect against. While kaspersky is good, there is no need to keep it when there are better options. If I were someone who wanted one simple solution, I would probably use KIS or CIS and wouldn't do what I am doing.

I am striving to make one of the best security configs for security. Besides adding something like shadow defender or deep freeze (which is a pain in the butt), is there anything I can improve? Again this config is for security, not performance. Thanks in advance! SECURE - LukeNukesEm security setup
