    You may add OSArmor for a better real-time protection, or directly go to Avast Free + Hardened Mode (Moderate or Aggressive).

    For Virus and Malware Removal Tools, You may add ZAM Free and Norton Power Eraser.

    Personally I use KeyPass 2.39 + Kee offline in FFQ, I have never tried LastPass so wait the comments about it from others users :)

    Thanks for sharing :)

    Avast Free is better than Avira Free?

    Depends on personal opinion really. Avast is a lot lighter of computer resource usage then Avira. Comes down to what you want I guess.

    I don't recommend Norton Power Eraser as an everyday on demand scanner tool because Norton Power Eraser is more aggressive than other on demand scanners that can detect a lot false positives. Only use Norton Power Eraser when you are 100% it is dangerous and not some critical Windows files and services.
