    Staff notes

    This setup configuration doesn't have a backup plan. We strongly recommend to add a backup solution for your data so that you can restore it in the case of an emergency.
    Backing up allows the recovery of data that has been lost due of a malware attack (eg. ransomware) or a hard disk crash. In such events you might lose family photos, your music collection, documents, or financial data. Backups are fast and simple to perform so it should be done on a regular basis.

    Carsten, you are right about updates, but I'm using custom windows theme and always waiting 1-2 days before install latest windows update. Otherwise updates can broke my windows. About other antivirus, not sure which one is lighter than Eset. This is most important for me.
    Oldschool, I will. maybe I underestimate this, because last time when I caught virus was year of 2008. And because I keep all my paypal/email passwords only in ''my head'' :D . But you are definitely right - standard is much safer than admin acount.
    Below are my eset settings. Are they good? BTW, sorry for my english.

    I use these Eset HIPS settings and Eset Firewall settings plus some other changes made by me:
    1. Enabled detection of potentially unwanted and unsafe apps.
    2. HIPS in smart mode.
    3. Scan on demand with enabled Avdanced heuristics/DNA signatures.
    4. Firewall settings below screenshots.

    keep all my paypal/email passwords only in ''my head"
    So you remember all that with recommend good passwords for every site
    Of course every site use own 20+ characters password with letters, number & special symbols.

    Don't think so ;)
    Password manager is a must nowadays. You just need to highly secure that and then enjoy the increased security for your login credentials.

    Also don't forget 2FA / FIDO or even better: U2F / FIDO2 for all sites which support it. Maximum protection then.

    I keep in my head only gmail and paypal passwords. When I create accounts in internet sites and forums, I use other emails, never my gmail who is linked ONLY wiith paypal. Other passwords are nor important - torrent trackers, forums, etc. They are saved in in chrome/google account.

    About FIDO/U2F never heard for this. I have to read about. Thank you :)
