    Level 29
    All 4 layers are covered:
    • Web Browser: Emsisoft, uBlock Origin
    • Firewall: Windows Default
    • Backup: Aomei
    • Realtime: Emsisoft, HitmanPro

    Additional advice:
    • Consider adding Scriptsafe extension to your web browser
    • Consider adding ZAM Free as an on demand scanner
    • Remove Bitdefender Traffic, this isn't needed as Emsisoft Browser Security is more than sufficient
    • An additional layer of protection which is optional is adding PatchMyPC for updating any software

    Thanks for sharing.

    Theoretically ZAM has more cloud engines than HitMan Pro Free (BitDefender + Kaspersky + one engine), but having both is interesting...

    I use PatchMyPC and is free and fast... don't know about Sumo...

    From Zemana
    as concern:
    -ZAM free,is not hitman pro enough?
    -i removed bitdefender traffic
    - for update any software I use sumo? is patchmypc better?
    Hey @aries91 , ZAM Free has new and powerful features to defeat malware samples, the new Beta version has a lot of important improvements such as very faster scan, better registry and task enumerators and many bugs fixed.
    You can see ZAM 2 scan speed vs ZAM 3 scan speed here:
