You may of noticed that my configuration has been downgraded since my last post, but since I have a relatively poor laptop that can't handle a lot of processes and I don't visit unfamiliar site, I had to ditch a couple of things. I'm still open to any suggestions by all means. :D


Miscellaneous Configurations:
  • Windows notifies me if non-store applications wish to run or be installed.
  • Controlled Folder Access is enabled. All personal folders and external hard drive (backup disk) folders are added.
  • MalwareBytes is set to check for updates every hour.
  • Regularly check for updates for Windows (which includes new definition updates).
  • A Windows Image is created every couple of days.
  • MalwareBytes runs a thread scan every day at 6am and a full scan every two weeks at 12am.

@SecretKeeper: please kindly consider:
  • Edit the field (and delete) : Virus and Malware Removal Tools -> Windows Defender Anti Virus | MalwareBytes Anti Malware Premium, since You already have both on real-time protection, You may add: ZAM Free and Norton Power Eraser.
  • As for "Disk Imaging Backup", You may add Macrium Reflect Free or AOEMI Backupper, both are free and reliably and more flexible than Windows Image Backup system.
  • As for "Web Privacy", You may add some browser extensions: and a VPN service.
  • Please kindly reflect Your changes editing Your config, and announcing them here.
Thanks for sharing Your config :)
