i dont know if you would laugh at me that i have accumulated licenses of many security and maintenance softwares; but i want to distribute these evenly between my laptop and my dad's laptop and my desktop, so that there is no interference or conflicts or overkill between those software. so i would like to request your expertise about which to install in which machine:

my HP laptop and my dad's DELL laptop have windows 10 installed and are connected to the internet and receive daily updates to the OS and security softwares; while my old desktop has windows 7 installed and is not connected to the internet in any case. i have the following legitimate licences:

emsisoft AM - 1 year licence
avast internet security - 1 year licence
malwarebytes - lifetime licence
super antispyware - lifetime licence
hitmanpro.alert - 1 year licence
zemana AM premium - 1 year license
secureaplus freemium - 1 year licence
adguard premium - 6 months extended trial licence
malwarefox AM pro
gridinsoft AM pro
xvirus AM pro - 1 year licence
avira prime - 3 months extended trial
herdprotect AM scanner - freeware
qihoo 360 total security with avira and bitdefender engines - freeware
kerish doctor 2019
wise care 365

i dont want to waste these licences. please suggest good security configuration setups for the above 3 machines that may not cause conflicts. thanks once again in advance

Few of the software licenses aren't even worth using (ie. SuperAntiSpyware, Trials of 6 months or less). Ideally a basic security configuration should follow:
  • Operating system (64-bit) that is up-to-date with latest version (ie. Windows 10 for Windows users)
  • Real-time Antivirus
  • On-demand malware scanner
  • File Backup (personal docs, photos etc)
  • System Backup (recovery)

PC 1 - Windows 10 64-bit - HP 8GB RAM
- Emsisoft Anti-Malware
- HitmanPro.Alert (inc. Scanner)

PC 2 - Windows 10 64-bit - DELL 4GB RAM
- Windows Defender Antivirus
- Malwarebytes Premium OR Zemana Anti-Malware Premium

PC 3 - Windows 7 - Desktop 4GB RAM
- Avast Internet Security

"emsisoft AM - 1 year licence
avast internet security - 1 year licence
malwarebytes - lifetime licence
super antispyware - lifetime licence
hitmanpro.alert - 1 year licence
zemana AM premium - 1 year license
secureaplus freemium - 1 year licence
adguard premium - 6 months extended trial licence

malwarefox AM pro = ???
gridinsoft AM pro = ???
xvirus AM pro - 1 year licence
avira prime - 3 months extended trial
herdprotect AM scanner - freeware
qihoo 360 total security with avira and bitdefender engines - freeware
