    Hey bro very nice config and similar to mine ( I just added ZAL to WD), but I have to say that a minimal config has its advantages: lightness and fluidity, and maximum compatibility kernel side ( just WD). Glad to see your setup and no real necessary addition on my part, consistent with your needs, and you well know what you are doing! ;):)

    The only weak point I can see, may be the Firefox. If you are educated and experienced user (like @Wave), then this is pretty good and safe setup. But I wonder, what is the reason for Firefox in this setup ?

    I do testing with Firefox on my host system, same with Chrome (although I use Chrome as my primary over Firefox).

    @Wave: We have same configuration :).

    As mentioned, if you are educated and aware on the things then not impossible.

    We learn through experience and some tools are meant us to guide but not rely over since we need to be independent too. ;)

    For me I love to watch YT videos especially when AV's failed to protect against some threats. ;) haha. You need at least few tools like backup and virtualization to come up a good investment to your system.

    Disabled:
    - Windows Defender

    Installed:
    - Emsisoft Anti-Malware (testing something)

    However I will uninstall Emsisoft Anti-Malware tonight or tomorrow and put back on Avast Premier which I previously had installed but disabled temporarily.
