    Brain.exe can help prevent Malware Infection and no system is 100% secure. ;)

    Making changes again and again...

    After a new install of Windows 10 I noticed something... The default solution by Microsoft is good when no AV was previously installed. Impact is like non existant! Dont get it why?!

    Software and other things are selected beforehand and installed after updates Win10 were applyed.

    So strange things with Win10 and AV solutions. ^^

    Best regards

    You can add at least one on demand scanner (I recommend Zemana AntiMalware) and you're good to go.

    Looks solid, especially with brain.exe installed. That software is hard to come by nowadays.

    Change up your OS Firewall to "3rd Party" if you have the ESET firewall enabled. Otherwise, I would maybe throw on an on-demand scanner like Zemana AM/MalwareBytes AM/HitmanPro/Emsisoft EK. And maybe add CCleaner unless you're using Windows Disk Cleanup.

    Thanks for sharing your security config :)

    A 2nd on demand scanner should be interesting (just in case ESET fails)

    I would add Zemana as an on demand scanner, CCleaner for periodically speeding your browser back to normal, and make sure either EIS Firewall (if there is one I have no idea :p) or Windows Firewall is enabled. :)

    Consider adding a couple on demand scanners.
    Consider adding CCleaner
    I edited your config to reflect OS Firewall as #rd Party Firewall
    Nice config! Thanks for sharing it with us :)

    Nothing to add. Maybe because your security config is almost the replica of mine :).
