This is my security configuration on all PC's except one PC is using Home edition SL.
Your config look good but i give you little tips to make it better
Change MSE to another AV(Example Qihoo,Panda Free,Avira Free)
Install more on-demand scanners like a Zemana,EKK
If u want test samples i recommend use Sandboxie or Virtual Machine
Change AdBlock to uBlock
Install Https everywhere
Thanks for share your config.
As you download Malware you could give Shadow Defender a go. You can get a free 30 day trial, it is a great software for testing Malware.
Thanks for sharing.
Nice config other than MSE.
Is ublock available for firefox on linux? 'cause I didn't see it.
I was using Vipre AV & changed to MSE to prevent KPP of AV protection drivers & filters.
Forgot to mention about PrivaZer.
I using uBlock on Linux Mozilla Firefox. Here is link
Thanks for the link.
you can change MSE with Avira free. Avira is lighter and simple.
In addition you may install URL scanner
Hello @Vasudev. Your configuration for 3 PCs provides a wealth of protections, and I particularly liked seeing you've SelfDestructingCookies in place for privacy. Tonight I've begun using CCleaner prior to all my browsing sessions rather than afterward. This was inspired by linux's bleachbit, and it's optional running at start-up which reduces tracking. Another simple yet effective method to further secure privacy, if you haven't already done this, is setting Firefox to 'Never remember history'.
If you're happy using MSE, do consider the practical advice @FireShootSK mentioned by utilizing a sandbox,
..which (imho) is among the foremost methods of protecting your system.
We've followed @frogboy's tip to you, and use Shadow Defender for 2 of our 3 computers!
Although we prefer Sandboxie's & Shadow Defender's protections, for our revived Dell desktop with linux lubuntu, we've chosen a free sandboxing alternative called "Time Freeze" to shield Windows XP's unpatched holes that could cause it to sink!
The use of safe habits shall continue to be the better protection than the best apps & extensions.
Thanks for sharing with us, and allowing us to share with you!
You may add backup browser like Chrome or Opera in case of any problems to Firefox with this capable extensions as possible only: Adguard and HTTPS Everywhere
Another alternative suggestion is to install Virtualbox in Linux as for safety process which you can test samples without worries.
It can be same in Windows just make sure don't mess any settings on network to avoid possible viruses jump to windows host system.
Why do you keep Windows Defender Offline as an on-demand scanner ? You already have MSE.
I also suggest Avira Free Antivirus or Avast Free Antivirus (without Webshield and other useless components)
I like you config. Thanks for sharing
Windows Defender Offline is burned to my flash drive to remove viruses on an infected systems.
Windows 8 Firewall control from Sphinx ? <--- I'm using this one too ! one of the best firewall for me
combined with my EAV
Yes its the same. It exposes advanced functionality of windows firewall which is good.
I would recommend avira free
AVG Free+ Comodo Firewall
Many good suggestions already posted above.Thanks for sharing your config
Thank you everyone
Removed ESO and WDO. Since the latter is now integrated into w10 RS1.
You should add Zemana Anti-Malware as another scanner. Also I recommend that you add Malwarebytes Ant-Exploit Free for added protection.
