I recommend to set UAC to maximum. Mention in your config the WFC pls.
Windows SUA is a good choice.
Do you use any browser plugins?

- The Config does not allow me to mention MBAM WFC in the Firewall section?
- Just set the UAC to Maximum.

As for Browser Plugins ... yeah at the moment I use these in Edge.

Ohh my... I think this is over the top. I mean less is more is the exact wording in your case.
Privacy is less important than security and the more extension you use the more attack vector you have.

So which ones do you and others, think are not really necessary?
- Remove Web Boost
- Remove Canvas Blocker
- Keep Kaspersky Protection
- Remove Flash Video Downloader
- Keep LastPass
- Keep UBlock Origin
- Old Reddit Redirect (Keep it if you really need it)
- Dark Reader (Keep it if you really need it)
- Remove Forget Button (Those functions can be enabled in settings and don't require an addon as far as I know)
- Remove SuperSorter
- Remove HTML5 Auto Blocker
- PopUpOFF (Keep it if you really need it)
- Replace NeatURL with ClearURLs (ClearURLs)
- Remove Reddit Enhancement Suite
- Chromium Wheel Smooth Scroller (Keep it if you really need it)
- Replace Decentraleyes with LocalCDN (LocalCDN)
- Remove WebGL Fingerprint Defender
- Remove Font Fingerprint Defender
- Remove Popup my Bookmarks
- Layoutify (Keep it if you really need it)
- Remove AudioContext Fingerprint Defender
- Remove Online Download Manager
- Keep Turbo Download Manager

Addons that pretend to hide your fingerprint are never really useful. Play with the browser settings and tweak them for some more privacy and then you are good to go. More "privacy extensions" won't give you more privacy. :)

* Kept HTML5 Auto Blocker. ( I just do not like it when a video starts automatically. )
You can disable AutoPlay in the browser options. Picture is in german, but I'm sure you will find the setting anyway. ;)
