    Nice config, definitely a light IS.

    Please shift your entry 'Zemana AntiMalware with Realtime-Protection and Pandora-Cloud' into Realtime protection and shift 'Zemana Antimalware' into On-demand scanner category :)

    Consider adding a backup tool like Macrium Reflect free for system/data safety. You can also add 'HTTPS Everywhere' to Firefox.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Great!
    Three things to remember,
    1.Do not overwhelm you PC with security apps (I bet you won't because you prefer lite)
    2. Know which tools do what. Helps a lot during decisions
    3. Keep away from risky sites and files. You can try VooDooShield if you tend to deal with unknown app installations. You'll get details of it here itself.

    Feel free to ask and share here :D

    Backups are often overlooked but still a very important part of ones security config.
    Consider a System backup solution.Macrium Reflect and AOMEI Backupper offer good free solutions.
    Nice config! Thanks for sharing it with us :)

    on my system ( i7-3770, 16 gb Ram, SSD 840-Evo) Panda runs very lite. PC starts without handbrake...no fps-drops in games.

    Until now no false positives ( since 20.11.15). My wive uses Panda Cloud free...HitmanPro on demand an no infections since months

    Nice configuration out there.

    Everything is intact, no need to add any additional components. You can try Panda's Application Control which also good for advance/experience users.

    Consider VoodooShield to complement Emsisoft Anti-Malware and Sandboxie to complement Firefox.

    - Bullguard IS (12.11.17 - 27.12.17) light and interesting av

    Interesting, I haven't experienced problems with Kaspersky 2018 (f) and KB4056892, although I manually installed it.

    Have a great time with G Data. I as well always find myself going back to it.. (y):giggle:;)
