    Good setup :)

    Zemana AntiLogger Free is discontinued, you can move to Premium Edition.

    Zemana AntiLogger Free

    Looks like a good setup to me. Do you create system images if so what software are you using. :)

    Thanks for sharing. ;)

    Yes, I do, Frogboy. I use easeus todo backup free. I find it to be okay.

    Edit.... I'm not doing well today.... easeus todo backup Home.

    I don't see any backup. Hope you don't have anything important on the PC ;). Kidding aside, I'd recommend Drive Cloner Rx and RollBack Rx. Really solid combo. There's a sale coming up this Labor Day so if you can, purchase then when it's less.

    Otherwise, pretty solid.

    Thanks, guys. I had a bit of a sigh of relief when I got the little green "PC Secure" badge. :)

    Should be listed under Real-Time protection, keylogger protection runs in the background at start-up and is not an on-demand scanner.

    As @Huracan said above ZAL is realtime protection
    With Trend Micro there is no need to run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware in real time as it would be better served as an on demand scanner.
    I would consider adding Zemana Antimalware to your on demand and if you consider the premium version it would make a nice addition to your real time protection.
    All in all your config looks good! Thanks for sharing it with us :)

    hello why the extra addition of bitdefender trafficlight , if I may ask? I always thought that trends malicious page blocking was superb , atleast our trend guru @McLovin allways tells us ;) so no need for trafficlight , only slows down your webbrowsing experience unneedlessly.....thanks for sharing your config with us , looks nice! :D

    Great choice of AV. :) I used Trend Micro before and it's really good especially its Web/URL filtering. Thanks for sharing. :)

    I've always liked that little bit of back-up from Bitdefender trafficlight. I've never found it to slow down my browsing. It might be a bit of over kill, but as I said, I like that extra wee help. :)

    I've liked it so far. I've been using it for around six months and not had any problems with it. I used Norton before it, and I have to say that I find Trend Micro a better product. :)
