    You have all 4 layers covered:
    • Firewall: Kaspersky
    • Realtime & other: Kaspersky & MBAM Premium
    • Backup: Aomei
    • Web browser: uBlock Origin

    My advice:
    • Add Scriptsafe to web browser
    • Remove some unneeded extension which you don't need or use
    • Calculator may not needed as an extension as you have one within Windows itself
    • Kaspersky has very strong protection, MBAM Premium isn't needed

    Consider changing User Account Control from default to always notify and those Firefox extensions, damn... That's way too many.
    Thanks for your reply. I deactivate them for security or because I would have some security hole in the browser?


    Why scan every 4 days? Shouldn't be necessary with good realtime protection. I would consider dropping Malwarebytes from realtime protection. Kaspersky Total Security should be enough.
    Thanks for your reply. to the scans to be sure there was no intrusion, but change the scans every month .. malwarebytes does not slow down my system or can there be any conflict with the KTS?


    Hello @Malwalero , I would add ZAM Free to your config for Virus and Malware Removal tools.

    Thanks for sharing :)
    Thanks for your reply. Yes, download it.

    I suggest a backup program, I recommend Macrium Reflect free or AOMEI Backupper free. :giggle:
    Thanks for your reply. if I have the AOMEI. :)

    Thanks for your reply. I will also try it.

    Thank you for responding, I will follow your advice.
    Do I need to deactivate MBAM? is that I have the premium account for life.


    Overkill with both KTS and MBAM premium. I would use MBAM to on demand scannings only. You dont need the extra real time protection when you have Kaspersky. Otherwise great config. Thanks for sharing it.
    thanks for answering, just did not want to deactivate the MBAM but they agree that it is necessary to deactivate it :(

    @Malwalero:
    • If You have well tweaked KIS, You don't need MBW3 Premium resident protection (even it may cause some issues), I would keep it as on demand scanner.
    • You are using AOMEI for Data BackUp, but consider to use it also for Image System BackUp.
    • As for "Virus and Malware Removal Tools", You may add: ZAM Free & and HitManPro Free.
    • Some many extensions in FireFox...
    • A PassWord Manager would be welcome also.
    Please kindly reflect Your changes editing Your config, and announcing them here, hanks for sharing :giggle:

    If it doesn't bother you there is no real need to deactivate MBAM.... Just that it isn't necessary when running KIS. If you want it keep it.
    It's your config.
    ok, I'll think for a few days to see if I deactivate it ... thank you very much for the advice.
    Based off this it's down to you if you'd like to remove MBAM then.

    well, I'll think about it. thank you.
