Ugg want to use Crystal Security and HerdProtect but they probably will make stuff worse.

What do you guys think of me adding unchecky to my security software. I do download a lot and sometimes end up getting a pup or two if I am totally half asleep. :p

If you think your system can handle one more relatively light constantly running process, then it sounds beneficial to you to install it.

@J Gamez065: I think no need to worry much, usually even though we visit those common sites daily; the problem relies always are advertisements and trackers trying to bypass.

So having a decent security program is not a bad idea, to detect any rare intrusions.

REMOVED
Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit (May come back)
Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomeware BETA
(Software from the best security company I know it will be hard but they weren't really doing anything as I wasnt doing anything risky on my computer) As it says in @Umbra 's layered security guide an Anti-Exploit is very inportant I may go back to it at some point.. Hopefully I won't have to install MBARW again as it will eventually be integrated into MBAM. Once ZAM liscense is through I have three options. 1. ( May win in the Zemana giveaway gl everyone :) ) 2. ( I am asking for ZAM for my birthday if I don't win unless ) 3. (I just go back to my lifetime liscense of MBAM and either remove or scan with ZAM.)

Been awhile since I did a config update!
Having fun switching between browsers

Google Chrome (Avast Website Rater Avast Passwords)
Avast SafeZone Browser (Everything but Adblocker Enabled)
Microsoft Edge (Default)

Finally stopped using Malwarebytes R.I.P

NEW CHANGES

-Apparently have the Pro version of Win 10 on my computer I had originally assumed I had the Home one
-REMOVED Chrome and Avast Safezone! (Possibly temporary but pretty happy using Edge and its reward program)
Also removed Defraggler

Alternating between Bing and Google search engines in Edge Bing gives points and I need Google for specific important searches and logging out of my google account.

Decided to reinstall the OS from scratch all my protection is on my main HD while I have a second constantly connected for games and other programs I use

Whelp here we are again! :p

Replaced Zemana Anti-Logger for Malwarebytes 3.0 Protection (Just a test nothing is ever final for me..)
Both Zemana Anti-Logger and Malwarebytes 3.0 (Rootkit scanning enabled) for catching any nasties.

Although I still believe Zemana Anti-Logger to possibly give more protection. (I haven't gotten infected since coming onto MT maybe even latter.)

REMOVED: Malwarebytes 3.0 just going to use Zemana and Avast as scanners.

ADDED Google Chrome for sites that need extra speed. Sticking to Edge as I'm happy with it. :)
