Light setup only.
My name is FireShootSK and i help you improve your config:
OK you don't like UAC but i like saying "UAC can safe your PC"
If you want test samples i recommend install Sandboxie and Shadow Defender
AdGuard using WOT database. You don't need WOT(only if u want see rating for all sites)
Install Https everywhere to your browser
Thanks for share your config.
My name is artifice22 and I will be assisting you today,
your config is good but
UAC can save your PC just like @FireShootSK said, it's really important.
You don't want random applications installing malwares without you knowing.
Have you enable UAC yet? You better, it can save your PC big time.
To turn UAC on or off:
Open User Account Control Settings by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type uac, and then click Change User Account Control settings.
Do one of the following:
To turn off UAC, move the slider to the Never notify position, and then click OK. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation. You will need to restart your computer for UAC to be turned off.
To turn on UAC, move the slider to choose when you want to be notified, and then click OK. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
NoVirusThanks EXE Radar Pro does the same thing as UAC and better.
When i want to test stuff i do it in Virtualbox.
Adguard shows ranking when you click their manager when with WOT i can see the color coded at top of the browser.
Https everywhere is probably a good idea. Thanks.
I use mydefrag for defragment on hdd once per month and i must say i don't have issues because OS and programs are on ssd.
I see, just wanted to re-assure that everything was running smooth for you.
Everything looks good. Thanks for sharing your config.
I also like WOT for a quick reference in my browser when needed.
EAM,WFW & NVT is a nice combination.
Nice config!! Thanks for sharing it
Pretty good configuration, you may try Voodoshield at any time where it acts same as UAC, the difference is it provide detection capabilities as a reference from Virustotal.
Hi, I suggest you to install BitDefender 60 virus scanner, which is a very good quick scanner; then you can install also Auslogics Disk Defrag to speed up your PC with the defragmentation.
So, you can install also Collusion extension(it is avalaible also for Firefox), which allows you to know which websistes are tracking you.
Thanks for sharing your config.
@jamescv7 NoVirusThanks EXE Radar Pro is same as UAC so Voodoshield. Plus most engines that are useful at Virustotal are already covert by other programs i use as real time or at demand scanners. Thanks for your comments.
@Jo Man 2 of the tools i use already use the Bitdefender engine so it's redundant. About the defragment as i said i use mydefrag but it really doesn't matter cause i defrag only the storage drive, the important things are on ssd. For tracking i use the easyprivacy list but i will check your recommendation to see if it offers something extra. Thanks.
Updated to follow new guidelines.
Removed: NVT Exe, EAM, Sandboxie
Added: Rehips, Startup Sentinel
Enabled: Windows Defender
Even though your setup is secure add Malwarebytes Anti-Malware as an On Demand Scanner and MBAE for protection.
Don't really need it and i believe Zemana is fine. Don't get stuff on my system anw with the other protections so second opinion scanner is kinda useless. Just added one to add one. Had no other reason.
Why did you remove Sandboxie?
I use Rehips sandbox. No reason to bother with incompatibilities and having 2 programs running. Rehips is a very good sandbox and also hips.
@SHvFl: it looks like you are using rehips and also voodoo. that's interesting. how do you like that setup, and why do you want to run both?
and if you already have rehips which is controlling which apps are allowed internet access, why WFC?
just asking in order to understand.
Good questions. So basically i use VS as an "antivirus" taking advantage of the VT engine and also VAi. I set VS in autopilot so i get the less alert possible so i usually don't see VS and get a decent level of extra protection. Keep in mind atm i use no antivirus.
About WFC i basically use it for easy of use to turn the firewall on and off. I have a network lock for my vpn so when the vpn drops nothing works. So sometimes when i want to connect without vpn i have to close the firewall. I could do it with a script but meh WFC it's fine.
Also just edited first post to reflect actual stuff i use atm.
How do you like ReHIPS ?
I isolate everything that opens/downloads stuff from the internet. I added a few trusted vendors that i use applications from them so that i have automatic updates. I always use Lockdown mode without the gui. So basically nothing runs that i would not want to run.
