In next few weeks I'll be migrating to Windows 10 (probably when Fall Creators Update arrives) so I started rethinking my security configuration. Potential configuration looks something like this:

Avast IS + HMP.A + VS or
KAF + HMP.A + VS + Comodo Firewall or
KIS + HMP.A + VS

+all those browser extensions and second opinion scanners that I'm already using
+Acronis True Image or RollBack Rx Home

ALL of those configs you are mentioning above are OVERKILL! if it where up to me...... paid : kis confiured with jacks guide , that whas posted here on mt a while ago. or free avast in hardened mode with comodo firewall at cruelsisters settings and you are good . no chance of overlapp or conflicts in any way! remeber : less IS ,more!!!

Thank you for your opinion, Trickster! :) I'm familiar with both Jack's KIS guide and CF at CS settings and I've been using avast in a hardened mode for a long time now. :D
I've always been prone to dancing on a slightly overkill side of security configuration, but as long as it works on that specific system and products don't conflict with each other, it's fine with me. :D

A good lite config for new Windows 10: HMP.A & VS
2: EmsiSoft & VS
3: Sophos home beta w/ HMPA baked in & VS
theres a good start that will give you some browser security too, so you can eliminate some of your addons which will
in turn speed up your browsing, and keep you snug security-wise. ;)

Moved from Win 8.1 Enterprise to Windows 10 Enterprise.
Removed: Avast IS, HitmanPro.Alert
Added: Kaspersky IS, VS, Macrium Reflect Free, RollBack Rx Home

Trying out the trial version of KIS and free version of VS to see how it works together on Windows 10 before I decide to stick to it. I was sad to let HMPA go because it really grew on me, but it probably wouldn't be smart to have it with KIS. Is KeyScrambler good alternative to HMPA's keystroke encryption?

Good move but have you experienced some kind of problem/incompatibility between RRX and Macrium?

Not yet, as it has only been a couple of hours since I installed both of them and I haven't used Macrium yet. :)
On my previous system I was usually making system images with windows built-in tool. I did use RRX for a short period of time and liked the idea of it, even though it seemed a bit moody and buggy at the time.
