@MrBananaxx : please kindly consider:
  • To harden the system security (Windows Defender) with HardConfigurator (@Andy Ful), or NVT SysHardener and/or NVT OSA (@NoVirusThanks).
  • Change UAC -> Always Notify.
  • To run manual backups of important data to external devices.
  • As for "Web Privacy", You may add a VPN service.
Please kindly reflect Your changes editing Your config, and announcing them here, thanks for sharing :giggle:

My advice:
  • UAC to Always Notify
  • Think about a Backup solution like Macrium Reflect or EaseUS ToDo Backup Free
  • Add ZAM Free 3.0
  • Add a complimentary software for Window Firewall such as Tinywall or Malwarebytes Windows Firewall Control
  • Add Configure Defender for Window Defender to further harden and better it's capabilties

Thanks for sharing your config and hope you like my advice above.
Also I like how you have incorporated Syshardener to your setup, this can really help you with the Firewall rules which are in the settings of this software.

I modified UAC to always notify.
As for the backup program I prefer to reinstall.
For Zemana, I might try the new version.
I don't think a 3rd party gui for the firewall is necessary, same for configure defender:)
