    I just installed both on my laptop so I'm not sure it is too much?

    Not totally necessary, in my opinion, but they work well together.
    ( I unticked ClamWin, which a lot of others do also )
    forgot....also untick Emsi.

    Emsisoft alone is more than enough :) people use 3, 4 and sometimes even more complement to their computer security, this is paranoia, they are protecting themselves from a threat that will never come.

    It´s a good idea. Nothing protects you 100%, and SecureAPlus is really light. Install it without offline antivirus and disable the engines of Emsisoft, Bitdefender and Clam.

    I don't have anything against pairing Emsisoft Anti-Malware with SecureAPlus. :)

    SAP would be for default-deny, while EAM would be for monitoring for any files allowed to run. :)

    I am actually using the config now. Emsisoft Anti-Malware, SecureAPlus (Emsisoft Engine Disabled), Zemana Anti Malware (Only with Identity Protection enabled, Realtime Protection Disabled. I use it for Anti-Keylogger.) :)

    Personally, I would recommend either Emsisoft + VoodooShield or Emsisoft + EXE Radar Pro

    @Windows_Security see what I mean ? You can find this all over the internet and in any retail venue that sells security softs. At least 1/4 of MT and Wilders is comprised of this type of thing - in one form or another.

    Emsisoft is solid on its own and doesn't need to be paired with SecureAPlus
