Kaspersky is a powerful antivirus program and should be able to provide adequate protection on its own. However, adding an on-demand scanner or a second layer of defense can provide an extra layer of security. It ultimately depends on your personal preferences and the level of protection you are looking for. If you do add another layer of security, be sure to select a program that doesn't conflict with Kaspersky to avoid any performance or usability issues.

With any multi-layered solution, like Kaspersky, Bitdefender, Avast, etc., it's better to avoid using any other real-time protection to avoid conflicts. Even if they seem to be working together there may be a hidden conflict you won't notice until it's too late. Choose one or two second opinion scanners for your tranquility of mind and run a manual scan when you feel the need.

fwiw, I am running Kaspersky Standard in this win10_VM, and had been running it solo for some weeks, but I am also a long-time user of Voodooshield aka CyberLock, and I just added VS 7.44 and it seems very compatible with KS and no slowdowns either. Gives me an enhanced feeling of protection. VS is supposed to work with AV. Dan the creator of VS is on this forum and he is knowledgeable what works with what, and how VS helps with protection.
