Staff Notes

This setup configuration is not recommended for most users.
We don't recommend that you copy this setup for your system unless you understand the security implications. We cannot not be held responsible for problems that may occur to your device by using this security setup.

,

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.

@zeff:
  • It would be interesting to harden Your Windows Defender, via 3rd party tools such as Hard Configurator, or NVT SysHardener and/or NVT OSA.
  • As for "Virus and Malware Removal Tools", You may add: ZAM Free and HitMan.Pro Free and Norton Power Eraser.
  • 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.
  • A PassWord Manager would be welcome also.
Please kindly reflect Your changes editing Your config, and announcing them here, thanks for sharing Your config :giggle:

Definitely essential to have some form of a backup medium. Especially if you accidentally delete a file or run into a piece of ransonware.

I'd suggest using Macrium Reflect.
