Hitman Pro, could be your second opinion scanner, given the fact that adoct also the Early Warning Score, could be a good ondemand scanner to have alongside a main protection,

In my rank of ondemand scanners take the first place, followed by Roguekiller, and Emsisoft,

is a good practice to use more than one demand scanner, sadly, even if I have a lifetime for Zemana, the lack of updates and potentially vulnerability make me step away from their product, in the past was really good.

HMP is only a secondary scanner (ie Not Real Time), so no, there would be no redundancy.

But regarding your current setup- do you have MB in Free mode (2nd opinion only) or Paid (Real-time)? As a 2nd opinion scan keeping MB on your system won't hurt anything, and you can have fun wasting time by doing a scan. If, however, you have MB in Paid Real time mode I suggest you uninstall it as it adds nothing to BD TS except a false sense of security.

In my opinion Bloatware Anti-malware (Malwarebytes) pro not worth it. Better use the free version.
As advice HMP.Alert (not HMP since you have BDTS). If you need a second opinion scanner: ESET online scanner, MBAM free...

What's Roguekiller like?

Malwarebytes has ruined itself, don't go for malwarebytes. & regarding hitman pro, are you talking about HMP.Alert? as hitman pro paid is quite redundant imo.

you may try srcureAplus or voodooshield.

If possible both as second opinion scanners, only to scan every month. For MalwareBytes, however, turn the autostart off.

I have it as a second opinion scanner, and if I got you correctly there's no point in switching to hitman pro?
