Nice Config, not much will get through it, I would recommend a sandbox program (e.g: sandboxie) and do you have a firewall?

You could re-add the uBlock Origin ad-blocker in your browsers, since advertisements, even though beneficial to websites, tend to increase resource usage in browsers. You could of course whitelist sites which you trust or you visit regularly and don't mind seeing advertisements on.

Acronis True Image is a powerful system imaging/backup application. I recommend you also create an Acronis Bootable CD or USB stick ("Acronis Bootable Media") to backup and restore your system more effectively. Make sure you have available clean system images so that no matter what kind of malware infects you, you'll always have a backup plan. :D

Also I consider KeePass as one of the best password managers out there. A very good advantage of this program is that it is open source - if people don't trust it, they can just inspect its code, and even compile it themselves. Also its security layers and features are extremely powerful.

That would be it, as far as I'm concerned. You already have a mighty config! If you want those little extras here and there, you can use the suggestions posted by other users and look around MalwareTips for more tips, software, and other information. :p

Double protection ;)
(ublock, Adblock Plus) removed.
Double protection? Its not needed, because you have AdGuard which is said to be the best adblocker for now. And having other two adblockers which are also excellent may cause your computer for extra resource to your browser, and sometimes you may encounter high CPU usage for the same purpose. You have an excellent security software EIS which covers oyur computer like bouncers ;). So having Adguard and EIS is perfect for your system and covers all rooms!
Well indeed you removed them its a good step though.
