    How do you like Aomei Backupper? I've always considered imaging app to be the strongest and most reliable security against threats.:thumb:

    Pretty neat right now, but could use some more maturing. Restored 5 times and worked each time. Keeper for me. Restore and backup speed is about average.

    Its light and most important no pop-up ads. Monitoring network drive is added to free version now. Though you get web protection only by installing toolbar for now, they are working to replace the toolbar with some kind of add-on. Also Windows Firewall Management is added to free version. You can only enable or disable windows firewall, there is no outbound protection. Overall its very good. :thumb:

    On-demand: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Emsisoft Emergency Kit

    Data security: AESCrypt + WinRAR (256), Zer0 File Shredder, CCleaner, Recuva

    Backup: Windows System Restore, AOMEI Backupper, Norton Zone

    Updates: Windows Update, SUMo, Driver Booster

    Browser: Startpage by ixquick, about:config privacy tweaks applied, Do Not Track enabled, Private Browsing enabled, Cookies Disabled, Adblock Plus, Cookie Whitelist - With Buttons, HTTPS-Everywhere, Masking Agent, NO Google Analytics, Self-Destructing Cookies, WOT (Web Of Trust)

    Other: NAT Firewall, Norton ConnectSafe, EULAlyzer Personal

    Thinking about a VPN as well, but not quite sure who to go with...there is so many available.

    I have a tendency to change setups too often, so I might add, replace or get rid of a few thing's.

    I don't know, what do you think...any advice with the above setup?
