Notes by Staff Team
  1. This setup configuration does not have a backup plan. We strongly recommend to add a backup solution for your data so that you can restore it in the case of an emergency.
    Backing up allows the recovery of data that has been lost due of a malware attack (eg. ransomware) or a hard disk crash. In such events you might lose family photos, your music collection, documents, or financial data. Backups are fast and simple to perform so it should be done on a regular basis.

From your setup:

Good luck. You will need it.(y)
Not having real time protection and sharing the PC with family members is literally the best way to get 500 fresh samples of PUPs and adwares. :LOL:
It’s even grossly negligent.

You know, not everybody is a click-happy user. Some have common sense, and I told them to not click on/run any unusual thing without my permission.

"Other users: Other accounts are Admin users"

It seems that other users use other (non-SUA) accounts. So, the SUA account is less safe than usual.
fixed that now (y)

If you don't use an AV because you have common sense you should think again. Vulnerabilities can get into your PC and place a backdoor there, you'll never know if you're infected or not, and a security solution can detect and disinfect it. You don't even need to use a third party AV, you can just use Windows built-in security (and do some hardening if you want).

...
Merely implementing a strict SRP and not allowing standard users to elevate is often way more secure than any antivirus
...
This will work only with software based on Microsoft Store, and software that can update via Task Scheduler or Windows Updates with high privileges (I use it on my wife's computer, but also with Defender).
Such setup would not be strictly non-AV, because of the anti-phishing & antimalware protection implemented in the web browser and Windows SmartScreen which comes from Microsoft ISG.

The AV vendors would already implement such protection if they want. But, they know, that only a negligible amount of people would use it (no profit for them). That is why Windows 10 S was unpopular due to the lack of support for desktop applications.

It was a good idea, I set up SRP to prevent unlucky incidents. I left the deny-elevation-on-SUA setting disabled though, as it will going to annoy me too much.
