Great setup:)
I join the other comments about a good backup solution to secure data and OS.
You can consider a second opinion scanner such as Emsisoft EK and CCleaner that IMO offers a more complete cleaning of cache and temporary files.

Thank you all for your suggestions.
As for back up i have my most important in a usb.
Also both W7 and W10 are soted in a usb so in case something goes wrong i will just do a format;).
About 2nd opinion scanners at the moment i don't feel that i need one because i am very careful when i am browsing on the internet.

As for back up i have my most important in a usb.
I also had an Seagate external hdd where i stored my most important documents and other family related stuff. I also thought nothing could ever happen with it. But of course one day everything changed when my kid took it off desk and droped it on floor, i recovered about only 30% of 500GB. I learned to never relay again only on one type of backup place, now i use an other type of usb storage + cloud backups for files. You can never be sure how things will turn out at the end of the day when you have kids + computers at home. :D

All's good man, just create a system image using Windows Backup or with Macrium Reflect Free if you want a 3rd party application.

For individual data file backup, you can use the classic copy and paste method to an external medium or uploading to some cloud service of your choice.
An alternative for the copy and paste method would be for you to sync important files using something like Free File Sync, just to automate the process a bit. (I have used it for differential file sync on a directory that contained thousands of files and it worked flawlessly)

Thanks for sharing your config! :p

Yesterday i decided to listen guys to your suggestion about an image of my system.
First i created a system image and saved to the other partition in which i have W10 installed.
After that i created a system image of the whole drive W7 and W10 and saved to an external HDD just to be safe;)

I made a few adjustments to my security config, always in W7.
I created a standard account and admin account is password protected.
Uninstalled Cyberfox and Firemin.
The problem was cpu usage of Cyberfox.
Installed Yandex browser.
I have tried it about a month ago and decided to use it again.So far i like it and it's light on my system.
Of course i have enabled AppContainer in Yandex.

A small update.
I backed up W10 with Media Creation Tool in a USB.
I removed W10 from my secondary partition because the last few times i booted to W10 Check Disk popped up saying that it should check
Volume D (W10):cool:.
Never had this problem when booting to W7.
2nd partition will be used for testing Linux distros.

Removed:
Firefox x64. About high RAM usage i don't mind ( a lot :D) but about high CPU usage i do:mad:.
Cent x64.

Yandex is my default browser at the moment.
Extensions: Adguard and WebBoost ( thanks @XhenEd for the tip)
I have also added Revo Free.
