    You forgot the most important step: Backups
    Macrium Reflect is very good for this :)

    Even if you have no important data, a good backup solution is important.
    You can create a system image to restore the PC when it becomes unmanageable, it is always useful.

    You might want to get rid of IObit Driver Booster.Personally I prefer direct driver updates from manufacturers.
    Definitely consider some type of data and system backup solution!
    You might consider an on demand scanner(s).
    Thanks for sharing your config :)
