Thank you for your comment; it's good to hear that my configuration is secure
Even though I'm far from being a happy-clicker and I do consider myself as cautious user, I think one can never be careful enough.
I only took a small peek at Windows 10 while I was installing few programs on my dad's PC, but I might give it a go in the future.
Windows 10 Creators Update or maybe wait for Fall Creators Update. Either way it's a good setup and I think it's secure enough that you don't need Malwarebytes. I think Avast and HitmanPro Alert are already doing the heavy lifting.
Thanks for the tip, I'll keep that in mind when I decide to migrate to Windows 10.
Two months ago I downloaded the trial version of HitmanPro.Alert just to give it a go and loved it, especially its keystroke encryption.
avast - hmpa - mbam---> overkill! plus mbam is at best a so so on demand scanner , uses up a lot of needless ram in realtime. best to stick with avast in hardened mode and hmpa as extra safety net. thanks for sharing your config with us
Thank you for your comment, Glashouse. It's a valid argument and even though it might not be that probable (everything is stored both on WD Elements and WD My Book), it's still possible and maybe I should consider some cloud-based backup service as well.
@Transhumana : I don't want to make ads here but you could try CrashPlan which I like because of the unlimted version history and unlimted space in the cloud (also hybrid backup to NAS, Cloud, HD) is possible.
