    Other then naming your browser in "Browsers and Extensions", config looks good, basics are covered.

    Just edit your config by adding Comodo Firewall under "Firewall" field, instead of Windows Firewall.

    Nice config. thanks for sharing :)

    My bad, I over looked that. For firewall, just edit it to "3rd party" and leave Comodo FW and Avast where they are.

    Thanks guys, I'll do that when I get home later. I do have Windows firewall running alongside Comodo, I read that was recommended.

    I would not recommend doing so and would disable it.

    Hi, what I would suggest you do is:
    • Add HTTPS Everywhere
    • Make sure your using the optimal Avast settings (Hardened Aggressive, and using this)
    • Consider also using Emsisoft Emergency Kit and Malwarebytes as a second-opinion scanner.
    Other than that, I can't think of anything else.

    Thanks for sharing your config!

    What do you use for system image backups?
    I would consider some type of system backup solution if you do not have one in place.
    Thanks for sharing your config :)

    Did I miss what you have for backups? I'm the guy wearing a tinfoil hat shouting that you need backup.

    Some suggestions:
    • Macrium Reflect
    • Rollback Rx
    • Drive Cloner Rx
    • Acronis True Image
