Edited config with username as required
UAC enabled?
x86/x64 OS?
Computer Knowledge?
Last know infection?
Could add some on demand scanners such as Malwarebytes Antimalware,Hitman Pro,Emsisoft Emergency Kit,ESET Online Scanner
Consider uBlock in place of ABD and adding HTTPS Everywhere

UAC is set on medium, x64bit OS , Computer Knowledge Medium and i cant remember the last virus i got infected to .
i use HTTPS everywhere but forgot to mention sorry.
and thanks i will try ublock and which online & ondemand scanner you recommend plz

Avira Pro Antivirus is fine though but its supplementary components are lack like proAktiv so a companion AV like SecureAplus/Voodoshield/Xvirus or Crystal Security should be fine though.

Other than that, follow the other suggestion as mentioned.
So which antivirus u recommend i am deciding btw norton or kasperasky so which one ??

@arslan ejaz :

For simplified and install/forget mechanism then you may go Norton AV/IS, their core of protection is purely based on cloud and lesser in signatures (Auto-Protect realtime). Default configuration should be fine and Sonar is active at primetime.

If you want huge + little bit complex configuration then go to Kaspersky AV/IS; its more on how a user check it in order to achieve better results. Application Control Privilege is an interesting feature which requires a lot of knowledge to understand well.

Hi, I suggest you to follow the other
suggestions, because they are perfect.
In addition I want to suggest you to
install Collusion extension, which allows you to know which websites are tracking you and this is very important!!
Then you can also install PrivaZer.
Thanks for sharing it :) ;)

Hello, I recommend you to remove any products made by IObit, you use the following:

Driver Booster Pro
Iobit Smart Defrag

IObit products usually do more halm than good, they have also stolen Malwarebytes Virus Definitions.
