    Good Config
    At System Utilities you can use NepTune SystemCare Ultimate (Its WiseCare with a better Design, you can use any WiseCare Key to Activate it) & CCleaner

    Complete Security layers covered

    If properly configured, uBlock Origin will block all popups for you. No need for another extension.
    Windows built-in backup system is decent but the backup process slows down the PC by a big margin, and it's not as convenient as Macrium Reflect, for example.
    Good config otherwise.

    Things that could be added:

    Browser: could help the community if the Browser(s) are named :p

    Browser extensions: (assuming it's Chrome or FF)
    - Cookie Autodelete
    - Malwarebytes Browser Extension or WDBP (Chrome & Opera only)
    - Privacy Possum (Chrome Only)
    - Netcraft
    - Script Defender (Chrome/Opera) or ScriptSafe (both)
    - Canvas Defender (Chrome/Opera) Canvas Blocker (FF only)
    - Decentraleyes

    Please note Poper Blocker is a privacy invading extension that I would highly advise to remove ASAP.

    Default Search engine: change Google to either StartPage or DuckDuckGo

    On demand scanners looks good to me, I would suggest Emsisoft, but the combination you have I believe to be very good.

    Security:
    - Syshardener - partnered with your current AV suite, for better OS/System hardening and security
    - Sandboxie - for additional browser security & privacy
    - Windscribe VPN Free 10 or 15GB plan
    - Macrium Reflect or Aomei Backupper for regular backups of your system

    Bleachbit or Wise Disk Cleaner are alternatives to CCleaner.

    Everything else to me looks very secure, thanks for sharing.

    Hi

    thx for suggestions.

    I just uninstalled bitdefender since gave lot of issues. now added kaspersky TS with TAM enabled.

    yeah sry about that, im using google chrome.

    deleted poper blocker as you said, now im using ublock as pop up blocker. added script defender and cookie autodelete.

    syshardener was Incompatible with bitdefender ( blocked by behavior blocker ) but has no problem with kaspersky so im using it now.
    kaspersky has safe money already with hardware virtualization . im fine with kerio control.
    also replaced ccleaner by Wise Disk Cleaner.

    Removed : Kaspersky Endpoint Security - uBlock - Script Defender

    Added : ZoneAlarm Extreme Security - AdGuard
    why did you replace the respected kaspersky with zonealarm, which is not even tested by the testing sites, like av-test, av-comparatives?

    never mind , zone alarm extreme is broken as ****. got a free license for 2 years and installed zonealarm because of threat emulation . but thats not working for executable files after reboot (bug) , everything is slow in windows even with 960 pro ... support won't help at all .
