I recommend Zemana Anti-Malware as a second on demand scanner.
Think about getting system image software (Macrium Reflect is great for this) in case very bad things happen and you want to restore your whole system in a few minutes.

Thanks for sharing your config! :)

I'd add HTTPS Everywhere and switch Bitdefender Traffic Light (Bitdefender should already block malicious and phishing URLs without Traffic Light) to Avira Browser Safety.

Oh and make a system image backup in case something goes wrong with your system. I personally use AOMEI Backupper but many will also recommend Macrium Reflect too.

Thanks for sharing. :D

Hey, @AMD1 !
Nice config, but consider adding Emsisoft Emergency Kit as an on-demand scanner.
Consider adding Avira Browser Safety and HTTPS Everywhere to Chrome.
Thanks for sharing your config and I hope I helped.

Great real-time protection. Why are you not running Malwarebytes Anti-Malware real-time as well? It might be overkill, but you did pay for a lifetime license, so why not make use of it? :D

Also, do consider creating a backlup image of your system, so that you can restore your system to its exact state, as it was when you created that backup image. (unless you don't have a problem reinstalling or repairing your OS in case of a software malfunction or a malware infection)
Here are some recommended applications for this task (I prefer Windows Backup, or of you want a third party application, Macrium Reflect Free):

Other than that, you're good to go, mate. Thanks for sharing your config with us. :p

Wow, thanks for all of the comments.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is now changed to realtime. I had it set to on demand as i thought there was a conflict with Bitdefender bu all seems OK at the moment.

I will get a backup software solution in place for system images.

Kind Regards

Andy

Nicely done. Store backup images in a partition separate from your OS or in some external storage medium (you can even burn them on disks) to keep them safe and ready whenever you need to use 'em.

Make sure you read around in the forum and in articles or resources online on how to configure KIS to your needs, or just familiarize yourself with its functions, if you haven't already. Knowing your security software is a giant step in securing your computer!

Backups are stored on an external HD

Just found a thread with configs for KIS and have followed that apart from adding a protected folder which looked a bit complex so will leave this for the moment.
