I'd recommend that you use Zenema Antimalware (ZAM) and Norton Power Eraser as both of these on demand free scanning tools are quite good!

Norton Power Eraser: Norton Rescue Tools

Nice addition with EEK on a USB and Macrium Reflect Free! (y)(y)

You could use Adguard for Google Chrome for maximum protection with both the desktop and Chrome extension enabled.

Good configuration!

You have a nice setup, Chrome loads web pages in a sandbox, but alternatively, you can also install Sandboxie, a program that creates virtual environments limited in the size of the allocated memory space and on the access to the resources of the computer. Useful, then for a secure web surfing and to test programs or files of dubious origin :)
