    I uninstalled Kaspersky free as it started bothering me with rather silly advertisements about components I didn't need.

    Now:

    Win-10, Macrium,
    Admin account - my work PC, IT boss flatly refused to give me possibility to use SUA "these accounts are of the same security".

    Comodo Firewall
    - FW: Custom
    - Auto Containment: block all Unrecognized
    - HIPS: Safe, all boxes in Monitoring Settings are checked
    - VirusCope: off
    - Website Filtering: off

    Panda free
    Behavioral blocking is on
    Behavioral analysis is on
    So far no conflicts with Comodo's HIPS yet.

    Sandboxie - all browsers are there. As I have to use Admin account. I don't use Comodo's sandbox as it doesn't apply HIPS to sandboxed apps.

    Still in my siggy and STRONG/TIGHT as ever. 5 years running.

    Waiting for Windows 11 to come out. A couple of HDD's with Windows 10 but ain't giving in to that madness of updates and stuffed sardine can.

    They have done ok with Windows Defender but us diehards have greater expectations than what Windows 10 is offered so far.

    Special commendations to security apps like Shadow Defender-Sandboxie-NVT-and other third party security which is proved their metal and durability.

    I'm finally getting my new laptop, and switching from Windows 7 to Windows 10, in a couple of days.
    Considering keeping the same setup :

    NAT Router
    Simplednscrypt

    Binisoft WFC
    Appguard Solo
    Emsisoft Anti-Malware
    Sandboxie pro
    Keepass

    On demand : MBAM
    Macrium free

    I was wondering whether something should be added, like OSArmor. I am definitely not an expert, but I feel Appguard has pretty much everything covered.

    I'm also no expert but I think that with Appguard, Sandboxie and Macrium you have important things covered.

    Windows features and services reduced to needed only, remote everything (almost), sharing, scripting, and autoruns turned off

    Macrium Reflect, Cruel sisters Comodo FW, Simplewall, Dnscrypt (Simple DNSCrypt) with Quad9 and using CHEF-KOCH/dnscrypt-proxy-blacklist-filter, Panda Free, OSArmor, Appcheck Anti-Ransomware

    This setup is working really well on 64 bit W10 1909

    I think you have way to many . BD and Hitman would be more than enough..... Personally would only go with BD and an on-demand scanner

    My sig is up to date. Installed WiseVector StopX a few weeks ago mainly to add data-theft protection while in Shadow Mode (which does a great job protecting everything else)!
