@sona:

You may set UAC to Always Notify.

In System Backup, You may add Macrium Reflect Free or AOEMI Backupper, both are free and reliable.

In Data BackUp, consider also to use cloud services.

In Virus and Malware Removal Tools, You may add MalWareBytes Free & EmsiSoft Emergengy Kit.

In Privacy-focused Apps and Extensions , You may add uBlock Origin or AdGuard AdBlocker extension to Your browsers, to complement Anti-Banner module.

A PassWord Manager would be welcome also.

Please kindly reflect Your changes editing Your config, and announcing them here, thanks for sharing

My kaspersky ended at the end of March. Bought F-Secure internet security for 1 year only.
Added ublock origin, https everywhere, disconnect, ghostery.
Will add backup software soon.
My desktop is still protected by kaspersky.
I have a license of kaspersky password manager but i'm not sure if i'm going to use it.

i have multiple offline backups. almost same files(including documents, pictures, application installers, windows setup) are in both of my desktop and laptop. another copy of whole files are in my external hard drive. important documents and installers are in my pendrives(3x16gb,1x32gb,1x64gb).I backup them once in a week. :p

Password Manager:
- optional, you can use Bitwarden, I'm very wary of password managers but this one is very easy to use and trustworthy

Rest of your config to me looks secure. Maybe add a cloud backup option like MEGA or OneDrive as an extra stop safe for backups. More you have, the better security and safe storage of loosing data.
