Hi, although I tried various antiviruses and I'm considering myself as a fan of this stuff, lately I'm somehow bored and I stay with Win10 and its default antivirus, firewall...

Thinking about change for a few weeks already but did not decided yet. Hope I get some inspiration here ;-)

Update (04/03/2017)(28.11.2017)
Thanks to this amazing community my setup is:
SmartScreen - ON
UAM - ON (max)
Antivirus - AVIRA (free so far) Avast Internet Security
Backup - AOMEI - thanks for giveaway info ;-)
Malware - CCLeaner & Malwarebytes
Firewall - have to make some more research here so Windows default so far - Avast Internet Security
Browsing - opening Vivaldi in Sandboxie (extensions like HTTPS Everywhere, Avira...)

Thanks again for your help and tips!

If you are sticking purely with Windows protection mechanisms, I recommend you enable SmartScreen. Perhaps set UAC to maximum.

In addition, some form of system image backups is crucial in case of severe system infection - Windows Backup and Restore should be enough to create a system image.
(unless you have no files/applications to protect, and have no problem reinstalling your OS from scratch)

It is advised that you do some more research on your options for dedicated security software (3rd party antivirus, firewall, lockdown software, etc).

Thanks for sharing your config with us. :p

If you are careful about where you go,what you click on and what you download Windows 10 built in security provides a good lite setup.
I would enable UAC to max
I edited your config to include Smartscreen being enabled.
I think you first,and most important,issue is to consider a system and data backup solution.
Thanks for sharing your config :)

I like your config. Dont forget to tweak uBlock Origin to improve malvertising protection.
