Hi All,

I have a new laptop and requesting forum members to help in setting up max security. I would be using it for browsing, banking & trading, shopping, downloading legal and verified softwares/pdfs etc. I am looking for total security with anti keylogger + any screen grabber + HIPS + Anything else i can do to achieve max security.

My computer details -

1. Laptop - Refurbished Dell Precision M 4700
2. OS - Windows 10 Home
3. OS Version - 21H2
4. System Type - 64 bit OS, x64 based processor
5. Processor - Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3840QM CPU @ 2.80GHz 2.80 GHz

I am thinking of using Kaspersky Total Security + HitmanPro Alert. Is this combination good or anything else needed? I am an absolute novice. So please excuse me if i have missed any point in my question. Thanks for your understanding.

Regards,
Ray

Any good AV( Kaspersky) combined with one of Voodoo Shield, OSArmour, Simple Windows Hardening or Hard Configurator.

Or

Windows Defender with Configure Defender and either Simple Windows Hardening or Hard Configurator.

Combine one of these setups with a good adblocker ( UBO), a backup program ( Macrium) and maybe a DNS such as Quad9.

Don't overthink it and install 5 programs for protection when in virtually 99% of cases 2 will probably be good enough.

If your going to use Kaspersky probably SWH is all you need as an addition plus the adblocker etc.

Thanks for all the replies.

Does Kaspersky Total Security comes with anti keylogger + anti screen grab + HIPs? Is there any good tweak or max kaspersky total security configurations available? I am asking this, in a previous instance 2 of my emails got pawned and i noticed unauthorized usage of the same emails. Just want to keep myself safe as i would be using this laptop for banking, online shopping and trading.

MD + Hard_Configurator + Configure Defender.
I have been using this protection for quite a long time and it is the best.
I do not have any problems .
