Welcome to MalwareTips! There is one thing that you could change with your setup. HitmanPro.Alert cannot replace a proper AV. It only includes anti-exploit and anti-ransomware mechanisms, and even then it's not that great at that. I would recommend getting Avast Free if you cannot get a paid AV, but if you can Kaspersky is great.

swapnil banta swapnil banta relax and don't hurry first know which product you're using first
I suggest you UAC always notify (Go to search bar > search UAC > Open Change user account control setting > Settings open and set UAC to Always notify
UAC notify you when an application trying to gain access/makes changes or trying to install
Add more on-demand scanner (Emsisoft emergency kit)
This will help you when you real-time protection misses something or you're not sure about the file it's infected or not.
soft Organizer, Glary Utilities is utility software, not on-demand scanner move both to Frequently used System Utilities
I think you're using Comodo firewall as you method above Firewall:3rd Party Firewall
And sanbox: Shade sandbox

I edited your config as soft organizer & Glary utilities are not on demand scanners but system utilities.
I am assuming you are using Windows defender & Comodo firewall? Thread edited there also.
Consider adding an additional on demand scanner(s).
Thanks for sharing your config :)

swapnil banta swapnil banta : I tagged temporally as Risky Your config.

Please clarify what Exterminator Exterminator asked You about Windows Defender and Comodo FireWall and also consider additional on demand scanner.

What about UAC and OS File Reputation?

Thanks for sharing :)

I thought they had an on-demand malware scanner? I used Glary Utilities a few years back and I thought they did. Of course I didn't like it though and we know they are not a "security" company even if I am right and they do offer one... :/

I recommend you follow advice about UAC/SS/on-demand scanner/s.
