This setup may cause performance issues, system instability or conflicts between programs, and can hinder the effectiveness of all installed antivirus products.
I simple wanted a good application with good definitions and good compatibility with third party antivirus.Why are you using such an old version of Malwarebytes? Definitely not recommended.
Consider Bitwarden as your main password manager, highly recommended.
Consider replacing Avast with Bitdefender Free or Kaspersky Security Cloud Free.
Please update Malwarebytes to latest version.
Other than that your configuration is complete
boombastik: Not to pry but have you given up on Zemana?
You reminded me of it so since I was bored with nothing to do, I went to Bleeping Computer and installed the AntiMalware. It tagged 5 processes of MSI Afterburner v.4.6.2, this stable version having been released since--get this--October 29, 2019. So I sent feedback thru the UI. Wow, flashback! Remember when Zemana was here at MalwareTips around the clock with their revamped product, looking for testers and shmoozing? Now they are a mystery again.....
I have the same version Malwarebytes portable. Is perfectI simple wanted a good application with good definitions and good compatibility with third party antivirus.
The last is 2.2.1.
The version 3 and 4 have only good compatibility with defender. And the only difference is a cloud machine learning, an antiexploit shield (avast has also antiexploit) and a ransomware shield that has a so so detection rate and cuts the 4k ssd speed at half. Also i have found bugs that are unresolved for the time being.
Overkill to have Avast Free + MBAM on resident protection....
You may set UAC to Always Notify.
In Data BackUp, You may consider also to use a cloud service.
A PassWord Manager would be welcome also.
Please kindly reflect Your changes editing Your config, and announcing them here, thanks for sharing
Like Elladara internet DEN haveFor the uac i have problem with always notify because i have a gaming machine with above 800 games and i tried it and it is insane.
For the cloud recommendation here in Greece we dont have the internet to make such a huge backups.
But for every hdd i buy, i buy also a second one that has the same files for backup reasons.
The admin account is a trade of when you have a gaming machine with above 800 games. Half of them have bugs when run in a standard accound (for example anti cheat engine)I would consider to harden S.O. (hard configurator+allow exeand temp), On avast use HM aggressive (dont know if u already config so), Use standard account. The rest seems acceptable.
K , understand u point of view. Pls i would still suggest some sort of defense vs zero days, hard configurator could be good, or use Voodooshield. If u dont wanna use those programs, pls try other antivirus like kaspersky or avast (have smth vs zero days)The admin account is a trade of when you have a gaming machine with above 800 games.
