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.

How are you liking ZAM? Do you think it will replace MBAM for RT protection?

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. :)
