    @WinXPert :
    • Even using CFW + CSs settings, enable, at least, UAC to default.
    • As for "Disk Imaging Backup", You may add Macrium Reflect Free or AOEMI Backupper, both are free and reliably.
    • Consider also to run manual backups of important data to external devices, and/or in cloud services.
    • As for "Virus and Malware Removal Tools", You may add: ZAM Free and HitManPro Free.
    • A PassWord Manager would be welcome also.
    • MS is stopping W7 the support next year, but probably Your system can't manage "comfortably" W10 with only 2GB of RAM.
    Please kindly reflect Your changes editing Your config, and announcing them here, hanks for sharing :giggle:

    I edit a lot of images, if I enable UAC, I can't use drag and drop on Photoshop.

    No need for data backup. Most of my files are TV shows episodes and a few documentaries. Not much important after viewing them

    Never a fan of ZAM free (A lot of FP plus it trashes all my home brew apps and scripts). EEK is fine for me.

    I used to have Password Hasher but is no longer compatible with the browser I used. Tried Dashlane but uninstalled it after 2 days.

    This is not even Windows 7 ready. Audio have no Windows 7 driver support.

    Thanks for the suggestions but this setup is tight yet comfy for me.
