    Two Quick Suggestions:
    1. Replace MSE with Avast Free Antivirus
    2. Use Online Armor Free instead of Windows Firewall

    Added MSE4.0 once again. Disabled Windows Firewall instead because I couldn't get MSE to update through the firewall although I set up some rules. Also tried to tweak it with registry entries but it didn't really have an effect on memory usage. Only changed the update interval which was set to 18 hours by default.

    This is NOT what I have in place TODAY but what I'm considering.

    I want you guys (with more than 1 post) to find all flaws in the plan.

    there must be flaws....

    Awesome setup as always. Do you use paid OpenDNS or free? Do you use it with DNSCrypt? How often do you make images with Macrium Reflect? Any differential backups, file backups or just plain full drive backups? How do you like Shadow Defender?

    Thank you. :)

    Free.

    No, haven't tried DNSCrypt yet.

    I have a full system backup and make differential backups before any software testing or any major change to my system.

    Love it, SD has been a part of my setup now for about 3 years.
    Has never failed me. :thumb:

    How do you like Rollback RX?
    I've been looking into something similar to Windows System Restore. I been using Imaging and I think this would be a good addition.

    Did you have any problems with the software and anything I should know before I purchase?
