Some suggestions:

Important:
-UAC on
-Emsisoft Emergency Kit as a second opinion scanner alongside MBAM (you can add hitmanpro too)
-add some kind of backup as windows in-built feature or a cloud space (google drive, onedrive, mega, etc...)
-add an adblocker to your browsers (adguard or adblock edge) and a privacy extension (ghostery or disconnect)

Optional:
-try using K9webfilter and sanboxie to enhance your pc protection

Nice config :) :cool:

Suggestions:

1)Enable UAC ;
2)WOT is not necessary next to 360 Web Threat Protection because it's very powerful;
3)Add Emsisoft Emergency Kit to scanners because you can't just rely on one scanner (i'm using Norman Malware Cleaner once per week and Emsisoft Emergency Kit);
4)If you dont have SP1 installed, install it because it fixes all bugs and security holes;
5)Do a monthly backup of your important files on Dropbox (2GB),OneDrive (15GB) or even if you need more space MEGA (50GB).
6)Add Sandboxie and browse sandboxed.
7)Add AdGuard, it's much lighter than ABP (extension).

Thank you for sharing your configuration, Sundaram999.
I like the advice our insightful fellow members have shared.:D
  • Enabled UAC = Safety from system changes
Choose extensions for Chrome & Firefox as follows:
  • AdGuard, Disconnect, ScriptBlock - *Chrome
  • Adblock Edge, Ghostery (cookie blocking function only in FF), SelfDestructing Cookies (eliminates cookies prior to leaving sites/negates tracking), NoScript - *Firefox
  • LastPass https://lastpass.com/ - *Chrome + Firefox

Going to pass on UAC as everyone seems to repeat it when someone forgets to enable it.

Also, may I ask why you're running Windows 7 Ultimate ? You're running the x86 version of it, then I guess that you're specs aren't that great, right ? Do you use all the features Ultimate have to offer or do you just let it bloat your system and take up your resources for nothing ?

Is that copy of Windows pirated ?

first i must apologize for my bad english. i want thank you for your comment :) all these questions have 1 answer (i think) - copy of my Windows is pirated, very likely. as elsewhere in post USSR contries :)
That's what I thought.
What are your computer specs ? Also, do you use all the features Ultimate have to provide or not ?
