My current security config
@mike6688: tagged as Caution temporally your config since there is no system image backup solution in Your system.
Consider to add Macrium Reflect Free or AOMEI Backupper, both are free and reliable, also You may try Norton Power Eraser and EmsiSoft E.K. as additional on demands scanners.
Thanks for sharing
Follow suggestion about backups by @harlan4096
Thanks for sharing.
Definitely follow suggestions about backups.
Good config otherwise.
I'd tad up User Account Control to maximum than leave it on Default since it is usually easier to bypass it at Default. I'd also add a backup as suggested by @harlan4096 and @JM Security
Security is like a car. When you are driving, you wear a seat-belt and you have an airbag... When you crash, you hope the seat-belt and airbag can help save you. You put your car into repair with money from the insurance and now your car is fixed. In cyber-security, you hope that your security solution can help prevent an infection driving in your direction when you make a mistake, or block during the deployment of a malicious payload (like the car with the seat-belt/air-bag). However, when an infection is active, you can use a backup and that is like having your car go through repairs.
Even though you backup your data, without a system image it is more hassle for you. It would be like being in a car accident, and then not having the money for insurance, and being told that you have to manually repair the car even though you are not a mechanic. So with a proper system image backup, you can just... revert back. Automatic and less hassle, more convenient
Thank you everyone. I've just added Norton Power Eraser and Emsisoft to my on demand scanners. I'll have a look Macrium Reflect Free to add a dedicated backup rather than just copying things to a HDD like I currently do.
I'll adjust UAC to maximum also. I like that metaphor you used.
Please edit Your config to reflect the new changes and announce it here, thanks

I've now updated my config. I've added Norton Power Eraser & Emsisoft EK to on demand scanners, Increased UAC, added uBlock origin and installed Aomei Backupper. I will set it up for scheduled images tomorrow when I have time.
I've added uBlock origin also now thank you for the kuddos wouldn't be without Privacy badger.
