Consider using MBAM Premium as an on demand scanner only BTS is enough for real time protection.
You could also add an additional on demand scanner such as ESET Online Scanner
CCleaner or Privazer if not already installed
Some type of backup solution
If only for testing and you have another machine then you probably don't need all the above

Thanks for the feedback,
On my Main machine and Test I do use Ccleaner Pro from Piriform, I just didnt list it.
I tried Glary and no auto cleaning for the browser.
Norton Utilities has an extensive tool I like but again no auto cleaning option for browser.
I have also found that another tool that is a must have for "cleaning or Uninstalling" is Revo Uninstaller Pro. PeAcE

Good configuration, well better conduct system image of a clean state issue free system so if any application are causes the issue, you can revert back easily as possible.

Likely if you have enough resources then you may conduct on virtual machine with the OS you want to test of programs. ;)

Hi it is a good config, follow the other suggestions, they are very precious.
In addition you can add a second browser and Collusion extension, which allows you to know which sites are tracking you!
Then you can also add cyscon Phishing Protection, an extension avalaible for Firefox and Firefox-based browsers, which allows you to have a protection also against phishing and malicious sites!

Thanks for sharing it ;)

I am using BitDefender traffic light for the website tracking info, never heard of Cyscon would you recommend it over Malwarebytes Anti Exploit Jo Man ?
If so I may give it a look see.

EDIT:
I gave it a peek (Cyscon), and I feel that utilizing Adguard (paid) as well as Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Premium (for me) is sufficient, remember layering too much software can actually have an adverse effect.

Ok bro, yes I think that Malware Anti-exploit is sufficient, BitDefender Traffic Light is nice for tracking protection ;)

Ad Guard is a good option but it takes lot of CPU Usage.Other hand uBlock Origin is free and much better product. View attachment 97611
PC usage is not an issue for me as I'm on a custom built DigitalStorm Gaming system.
I do appreciate the heads up and advice though Mihir :)
I also have a lifetime license so unless it starts failing me I won't be switching anytime soon.
I have heard nothing but good things about uBlock Origin though from users here and if a time to switch does come, I think it would be a smart choice.
