Preferred Solution: alla bez Security config

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

1 recomendation: turn UAC on, considering you had an infection recently.

Hi !

My current box:

HP netbook Atom N450, 2GB RAM, 1 TB HD.

Running a customized Windows NT 5.1 (XPSP3) patched with POSReady updates until EOL in mai 2019.

I only run my OS in stateless ramdisk mode for performance, security and privacy reasons.

Just started using security and antimalware software.

I used an unpatched XP with NO Firewall and NO antivirus for several months and I never got infected as far as I know. (The C drive gets flushed after reboot so it's hard to tell)
For a long time I exclusively used brain + ramdisk to stay out of trouble and I has worked like a charm.

At the moment I am busy hardening my OS to stay safe in the future.

Using my "obsolete" Windows XP daily for online payments and banking without any fear...

Very good config.

A few notes and additions:
You might want to add a firewall application, since Avast Free Antivirus does not include any network firewall or HIPS (behavior blocker) components. These components are an essential extra layer of security.
For these tasks, I would personally recommend COMODO Firewall (free) which contains three powerful security modules:
1. Network Firewall (allows you to control connections coming in or going out of your computer).
2. HIPS ("Host Intrusion Prevention System" checks any file for suspicious behavior and allows you to create rules for how that file should run and what it can do on your computer).
3. Sandbox (virtual environment for isolating unrecognized or potentially malicious applications, so that they cannot harm your actual system or files).
COMODO Firewall is an extremely powerful application, and with a little bit of configuration it can become a very effective security layer. In case you run into any trouble configuring COMODO Firewall, there are many COMODO users here on MalwareTips who are all eager to help.
If you see that you do not like COMODO Firewall, you may use Sandboxie as a virtual sandbox application for isolating suspicious files and running applications (e.g. browsers) securely in an isolated and protected environment, without having to worry that any malicious files may harm your computer. (note that Sandboxie ... Read more

With Shadow Defender for everyday use, you have little to zero chance of persistent infection in your Pc. But an infostealer can communicate in your current session, then your real need is a good outbound firewall and a good backup plan.

I keep a casual security config. I don't keep a bullet proof security setup because it is cumbersome.
Also my device is slow and weak which further discourages anything elaborate.
After reading other configs, I decided to get a strong AV ie Kaspersky, changed my dns to Norton, maxed my Adguard settings and do monthly scans.
 

A:RVS Security Config

If you have a slow device than kaspersky should not be your security program of choice. It runs heavy! Especially if you have a laptop ; it sucks the lifeblood out of your battery. You would be better of with win defender , emsisoft anti malware or eset. Ad kb ssl enforcer to your browser as an extra security meassure. Also think about getting a backup program like aomei backupper standard , better safe than sorry Thanks for sharing your config!

liubomirwm said:

I haven't used Kaspersky Security Scan but probably deem it unnecessary with YOUR configuration as you have HitmanPro which uses Kaspersky and Bitdefender engine, as for herdProtect the false positive rate is massively high but in return you should get outstanding detection but some drawbacks are: If files need to be analyzed in the cloud it will take over half an hour and you will need to re-scan and also the signatures it has in the cloud for the 64+ engines are quite outdated so for detection against zero-day and especially zero-hour malware don't expect much. As for more on-demand scanners consider the following:
1.) Zemana Anti-Malware Free: Zemana AntiMalware Free - Limitless Scan and Malware Removal!
2.) Emsisoft Emergency Kit: Emsisoft Free Emergency Kit: Portable malware scanner | Free removal of Viruses, Bots, Spyware, Keyloggers and Trojans
3.) Comodo Cleaning Essentials: Comodo Cleaning Essentials | Download Free Malware Removal Software

My setup is lightweight and signature-free as possible (except Windows Defender). I believe the brain is the best security software. 2nd to that is OS updates. Then a good router firewall. Then HTTPS everywhere.

Other than that, my setup is focused on reducing exploits by reducing user rights as much as possible through Group policy and registry tweaks which get reset with every new Windows build grrrrr. Microsoft really needs to find a way to have us keep our registry tweaks. I can't see myself re-tweaking Windows twice a year. Fortunately, Group policy settings get grandfathered. Go figure.

I used to use EMET, but that won't work in CU so now I'm using MBAE and I think it does the job.

I have two Windows accounts. One SUA, the other a password protected admin account I rarely use. Decided that was the only way to go because if you are using an admin account, all kinds of processes use administrative privileges when they really don't have to. If I need admin rights, I just use the prompt and swipe my finger on the fingerprint sensor.

Really want to add SparkCognition DeepArmor to my setup to make it complete.

1/ add zemana portable to your ondemand scanner as it has one of the best detection rate. AVZ is quite outdated although it is made by kaspersky
2/ add bitdefender trafficlight or avira browser safety to your firefox so you will have more web protection. Avast is not really good in this field I believe

Hi everyone,

I think that this Config Wizard is clearly favoring Windows over Linux...

I'm using Arch Linux, imo the safest distro, because u can tweak it as you like.

My security configuration consists of:

ufw - great iptables frontend, tweaked settings in order to reduce attack surface
grsecurity - kernel patch for exploit and 0day protection
AppArmor - MAC, very simple rules configuration (I actually had to recompile my own kernel to allow it, default Arch kernel with grsecurity comes only with Tomoyo enabled - I've no idea how to use it and I'd also have to write my own profiles, so no thank you)
firejail - great sandboxing tool, essential for Firefox and vulnerable apps, comes with several predefined profiles
edithosts - interesting tool, blocks ads on HOSTS level, I tweaked it to block malware domains as well, doesn't slow down my browsing experience so far
rkhunter - decent tool, scans for generic rootkit files, reports suspicious files and most importantly stores hashes of essential OS files and then reports any tampering with them
It's a bit overkill for a desktop, but well... at least I feel safe.
 

A:eth4n's security config

Arch Linux is a good one, using Apparmor is a good move; you linux security setup is quite tight.
