Switch utorrent with qbittorrent because utorrent is not to be trusted. Just google utorrent bitcoin miner to see a portion of their fail.

I would consider an additional browser
Add HTTPS Everywhere to Chrome
Not a fan of ASC as CCleaner or Privazer are more than enough but as long as your careful with it and like it it is fine
Good Config! Thanks for sharing your config :)

thanks for input. I tried the HTTPS everywhere about a year ago, if I remember right, and I had trouble accessing certain websites. they acted as if they were down, until I uninstalled it.
Is there still a problem with that?

about ASC: I am mainly interested in the system optimization, which seems to turn off some windows unneeded processes. But I don't really know what's going on under the hood.
any insight on that? am I doing more damage than good?

I'm using HTTPS Everywere for a long time and have no problems, however if you have issues with one or more sites, you can disable the extension for that particular site.
About ASC, avoid it.
CCleaner is safe because it does not work in depth.

thanks for input!
one cute thing about ASC is the little widget showing ram and cpu usage.
any replacement for that?

Fine configuration! :)

You may add additional browser for emergency purpose

For ASC, cleaning feature are safe but the registry defragmentation and few others are known to produce localized issues to your system. So follow the suggestions instead to have a program like CCleaner for safety purpose.

thanks.
on windows 10 you automatically have edge and IE, so shouldn't that work as a backup browser?

@shmu26: Well other than that, a third party browser for possible issues may occur on Edge/IE so that your task is still productive. ;)

@shmu26: Its fine since its design as network monitor tool and a manual firewall configuration that can interact very well with the built on Windows Firewall.
