Good Setup :emoji_v: Some apps like SuperAntispyware are native now but overall good setup.
Just one suggestion, If you want, you can think about Disk Encryption softwares (BitLocker).

My advice:
  • It's imperative you have Smartscreen enabled, kinda no excuses to have this off really and it's in built with Windows 10
  • Remove SUPERAntispywarePro, it had it's time, it's now outdated, replace this with ZAM Free 3.0 & MBAM Free (maybe NPE)
  • Replace your current adblocker with uBo or Nano Adblocker if you wish
  • For extensions you can remove NoCoin & i don't care about cookie (if replaced by above), you can use both these extensions as a filter list provided on filterlists.com
  • Also for extensions use Emsisoft Security Extension, has a better detection rate for web based threats compared to that of Avast, maybe have Netcraft to think about dealing with phishing sites
  • Add Tinywall or Malwarebytes Windows Firewall Control as a compliment the native Windows Firewall
  • Set Avast's hardened mode to aggressive
  • (optional) add in Syshardener to default settings
I really hope these pieces advice help further your config into a more protective system with the outdated software and crap you don't need

Great advice (y)
The “I don’t care about cookies” extension is more powerful than its list added to any adblocker according to its developer (and confirmed by me):
Be aware that the filter list is not as effective as a browser extension but it will hide most cookie warnings.
