    I can't think of more to check off hand.
    Things are in pretty good shape though.

    Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Don't tempt fate. Complain about something minor so the gremlins don't target you.

    I have a tiny statue of Ganesha & a large picture of him above my computer table.
    I burn incense & talk to him often.

    I think the gremlins will be shooed away.

    How about the event log? Seems like there's something not so good going in there from time to time.
    But lately I only have a 1008 perflib (bitsperf.dll) error once a day..(I just ignore it as usual) lol

    The only problem I see is something has been messing with the colors making things hard to see and read

    Except for a nagging Windows "Important update" for which there's no explanation and never had something like that even close to my computer or network, everything quiet on my front too. That may be because I don't mess about with too many custom stuff if I don't have to. Pretty well all stock in windows except for some stuff I am very sure it's safe to do. Occasional BSOD (once a month or even less) I can attribute to pretty extreme OC I have. Cleanly uninstalling programs, not needlessly cleaning system with "miracle programs", pretty well secured with AV , Malwarebytes and McShield for USB memory etc helps a lot.
    It took some doing but right now it's smoothest running windows I ever had.
    Latest problem I had was with Flash-FF combination (was crashing repeatedly) sorted itself with FF 31.0.
