    This is my current setup. I know that it would make sense to move to a SUA. However, I prefer using an Admin account due to convenience.

    I may replace 360 TS with something better, in time. For the moment, it suits my needs very well, as it is very light and highly configurable.

    I have another system I use for testing various security software.

    Maybe try SEP network and host exploit mitigation only config
    It will be lightweight.
    And you will have decent IPS protection.
    Combine it with your current AV and you will have very strong network protection as well.

    Nice setup, however Cent Browser is slow at updating Chromium version which may increase the attack surface.
    I was considering switching browsers a few months ago, for that same reason. However, I've found that release beta builds, based on more recent versions of Chromium, are released much more quickly than the stable versions. I update as soon as a beta build is released and have found the beta builds to be just as stable as the release versions.

    @roger_m:

    You may set UAC to Always Notify.

    In Virus and Malware Removal Tools, You may add an additional on demand scanner such as EmsiSoft Emergengy Kit.

    A PassWord Manager would be welcome also.

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

    Windows Firewall:
    - Utilise Tinywall in conjuntion with the use WFW, under 2MB to use, very sufficient

    Extensions:
    - Regarding extensions, do not use Poper Blocker, has very very bad privacy concerns.

    Password Managers:
    - very optional, you could use Bitwarden very easy to use and safe too

    Everything else looks good! ty for sharing.

    Just the default settings.
    It is a nice add-on, really nice. How do you get rid of the message of inactivating developer mode that comes with every start of the browser. If i do it the add-on inactivates that i dont want, but at the same time i dont want to have to click away the message every time.

    Do you know how to?

    I don't know. I haven't enabled developer mode and I don't get that message.
