@Nordman:

In Photos and Documents Backup , consider also cloud services.

In Backup and Restore, trusting only in System Restore Points (and often may fail) is not very reliable, You may add a full Image System BackUp solution: Macrium Reflect Free or AOEMI Backupper, both are free.

Please kindly reflect Your changes editing Your config, and announcing them here, thanks for sharing :)

A short review about Dr Web SS ?
pros:
- fast
- exploit protection
- good firewall
- BadUSB protection
- camera and microphone protection
- privacy policy (files and personal data from the device are not transferred to the cloud)
- ransomware protection

cons:
- weak BB
- not bad signatures, but sometimes they are not updated very quickly
