    Solid config you've got there!

    There's really no need for any additions.
    Make sure to keep any backup software up-to-date and make regular backups.

    Thanks for sharing your configuration with us!

    Out of curiosity, really a need for MBAM running RT along with Symantec?

    One browser add on: Ghostery:
    Back between 2012 and 2013 Ghostery was involved in a rather uncomfortable drama circle... To put in perspective, Ghostery was owned by a company which collected data to which provided data to advertisement companies.

    Take your pick.

    I recommend you remove Ghostery, because of the scandal it was involved in, as @Inkurax said, and replace its functionality with uBlock Origin, using its tracker filter lists, in order to enable uBlock Origin to also block trackers in addition to advertisements and/or malware. (uBlock Origin actually also has malware website filter lists, such as the "Malware Domains" filter list, which also enhances browser protection against malware sites or sites which distribute malicious software)

    I have been running MBAM in real-time along with COMODO Internet Security for a very long time and it hasn't failed me once. I am even considering uninstalling the Antivirus component of COMODO Internet Security and leave the Network Firewall and Defense+.
