    Please advise if MBAM and HMPA is enough because I believe they are enough. I don't visit shady websites and hardly get any virus- like once or twice or nil in 1-2 years.
    Enough for most Users .
    But you should be warned that Hitman pro Alert didn't do good in my tests especially against scripts .

    If you would update to windows 10 you could replace it with configure defender + hard configurator it would offer better protection + performance.

    Malwarebytes is not worth paying for, it has one of the lowest detection ratios yet the highest performance impact and resource usage out of any product, even free antiviruses have more features, is lighter and has better protection, stick to the free version of MBAM, same goes for hitmanpro (trial version)
    Also get a password manager such as Bitwarden and a adblocker like uBlock Origin.

    MBAM does consume RAM but I have not noticed a significant impact. Will uninstall if face slowness and HMPA is quite light-in fact one of the lightest apps i have ever seen.

    From my personal experience and testing it has the biggest performance impact ive seen, it slowed down my computer so much, and in my testing it achived a detection ratio of 55%.
