@harlan4096 : Thanks for the suggestion with MBAM but it is helpful as a secondary protection. Sometimes ESET doesn't flag suspicious files which MBAM does.

Regarding the OS architecture, I'll consider x64 in the future.

Just asking, would it be advisable to choose only one backup software in my PC. Would there be any conflict in case of restoring system/parttion images?
