It definitely doesn't hurt in terms of security, but in my opinion, you are bloating your system at this point. A lot of your products can be removed by simply adding an anti-executable (NVT EXE Radar Pro, VoodooShield, AppGuard).

Zemana Anti-Logger won't be used then. :)

Zemana Anti-Logger Free or Paid?
Curious about adding a VPN is there a good free one I can use?
Why do you require a VPN? What are your preferences to said VPN?

I would consider using one for accessing blocked content or when using local hotspots. On the other hand, a VPN for your mobile isn't a bad idea, since you're more likely to use foreign Wi-Fi than on your computer.

I was thinking Zemana Anti-Logger Paid. Would I be more secure with a VPN out of curiosity. Anything blocked from my country probally wouldn't be of interest to me anyway. I am more curious about being secure with a VPN if I am. However @Alkajak thought it would bloat my system a little bit so now I'm not very sure.

I had said that it would help your configuration, but you could part ways with a lot of your software by replacing it with something more efficient. I had not said that you should remove just the one program because it is bloat.

Zemana AL is a fine program, and does not cause bloat by itself.

Malwarebytes is guilt tripping me. Multiple times I have set it NOT to run at startup and yet it does. Same with removing scanning and updating. Zemana is pretty good quite a few false positives. Better blocked than infected though. :)
