From my point of view Malwarebytes antimalware I don't think it contributes much if you already have ESET Internet Security... the only thing it provides is a serious load of RAM and CPU.
I would leave it for on-demand scanning.
Thank you for sharing:giggle:

@harlan4096 : Thanks for the suggestion with MBAM but it is helpful as a secondary protection. Sometimes ESET doesn't flag suspicious files which MBAM does.

Regarding the OS architecture, I'll consider x64 in the future.

Just asking, would it be advisable to choose only one backup software in my PC. Would there be any conflict in case of restoring system/parttion images?

Hum I'm not sure, never had those 2 at the same time in my systems, but You may create a clone image of the system with both and save them as a precaution...

@JM Safe, I agree with you. I actually have Zemana Anti-Logger Pro installed as my on-demand scanner. So far it hasn't failed me yet. :giggle:
