Please give me feedbacks, I think KIS + HMPA + VS is a overkill but I am running HMPA w/o Realtime protection Malware component, I only have exploit ,safe browsing and Risk reduction components enabled!
KIS should IMO be enough. But if someone feel more secure with VS, then fine with me. I also use Hitman, to on demand scans, but it never find anything. Use 2 factor authentication where it's possible. It's a great extra umbrella over your com. (y)

Also:

KIS , HMPA , VS free
Excessive overkill... Application Control well tweaked does not need any additional security tool...

In Browsers, Search and Addons, please also specify browsers add-ons...

In Personal Files & Photos backup, You may consider also cloud services, leaving Macrium in Device recovery & backup, for full image system backups...

Thanks for sharing :)

I use free version of Microsoft OneDrive, which works fine for my needs, although your mileage may vary.

if you were to use only one highly recommended add-on, check out uBlock Origin:


I provided the link for Firefox web browser.

I use Macrium Home to backup manually my C on a disc drive and other external drives to make backups of data, photos, music, videos... I also use Onedrive, Google drive, Google Photos and Icloud ( paid), most of them automatically, to secure another copy of everything important for me. To sum up: a combination of disc drives and cloud services.

There are many versions of Python and Python launcher installed on my PC, Can I uninstall them, or do I need to keep them?

can I keep HMPA with KIS keeping HMPA antimalware disabled. Only using its safe browsing and exploit protection?

KIS probably known to be incompatible with HMPA. Confirmed even for my user experience, KSC free and HMPA.
Just search for this topic on K support forum, HMPA looks like still on the list of incompatible software...
