@sampath7:
  • You don't need Trend Micro Ransombuster, and specially with TAM enabled and Unknown Apps to Untrusted.
  • As for "Disk Imaging Backup", You may add Macrium Reflect Free or AOEMI Backupper, both are free and reliably.
Please kindly reflect Your changes editing Your config, and announcing them here, hanks for sharing :giggle:

Thanks all for the Suggestions :)
Yes you are correct . I removed Trend Micro Ransombuster and added OSArmor .
Installed Macrium Reflect Free too.

Also thinking about adding 360 Document Protector or AppCheck Free. (Not decided yet)

Regarding the Windows Admin Account. Admin Account is used only by me and Other users are given standard (non admin) accounts. :) So no worries I guess.

Well....I still reluctant to use only KIS. Not because it lack any protection but for the peace of my mind :D
Then you can also consider Voodooshield or novirusthanks exe radar pro. I strongly agree with the rest. If you have KIS with TAM enabled you don't need anything. Just a good adblocker like AdGuard and SysHardener to harden your OS. The rest are redundant. You can keep Malwarebytes as an on demand scanner.

Nope. You yourself don't want to be running as admin, create a new normal account for yourself and leave the admin one alone

Well because of the way I use my computer, that (using a standard Acc) may be quite inconvenient and annoying. With the UAC enabled to always notify and the experience I already have about the best security practises, I don't think its a must. Thanks though ;)

Put paranoia aside my friend, KIS is more than suitable for your daily habits if you do common sense tasks and have sensible browsing habits, never go overkill in the name of security paranoia.

All in all, great config my friend, thanks for sharing.
