  • MalwareBytes Free has no real-time protection, so You should delete from Real-Time, and put it in "Virus and Malware Removal Tools"-
  • As for "Virus and Malware Removal Tools", You may add: ZAM Free, EmsiSoft Emergengy Kit and HitManPro Free.
  • As for "Web Privacy", You may add also a VPN service.
Please kindly reflect Your changes editing Your config, and announcing them here, hanks for sharing :giggle:
Thank you, moved Malwarebytes Free to Virus and Removal Tools, will check out getting Emsisoft Emergency Kit Free, and Hitman Pro

Previously used Avast (properly removed with Removal tool a few weeks ago, so getting things all sorted with Defender, Malwarebytes free and system configuration

My advice:
  • You could add Malwarebytes Window Firewall Control or Tinywall to compliment the native Windows Firewall
Everything else is fabulous, thanks for sharing!
