    Real-time protection. Emsisoft AntiMalware, Malwarebytes, Zemana.
    I think it's too much real-time program.
    would be enough with Emsisoft AntiMalware and
    Malwarebytes and Zemana leave them for scans on request.
    Your computer will thank you.
    Thank you for sharing:giggle:

    @pisondi:
    • Please specify the exact version of EmsiSoft AM, MalwareBytes and Zemana. It seems overkill to use these 3 products in real-time protection, keep only EAM.
    • Also, specify the 3rd party FireWall, since EAM does not integrate own FW.
    • It does not make sense to have EEK as a Removal Tools since Your already has AEM, so You may keep ZAM Free (not resident protection) and Norton Power Eraser, and MalWareBytes 4 Windows Free (not resident protection).
    • Consider also to run manual backups of important data to external devices.
    • As for "Web Privacy", You may add a VPN service.
    • A PassWord Manager would be welcome also.
    Please kindly reflect Your changes editing Your config, and announcing them here, thanks for sharing Your config :giggle:

    If you have Emsisoft AntiMalware you do not need Emsisoft Emergency Kit.

    If you use MalwareBytes with real-time protection I would turn off the real-time protection and use it only as on-demand scanner.

    Thanks for sharing.
