Help me decide whats better for me. I was a Kaspersky Internet Security & Malwarebytes fan for long time. However I've replaced Kaspersky 2018 due to a lot of issues with Windows 10 - heats drives + loads on processors. ..
I know that the solution would be to switch back to Windows 7 but I can't. So I've replaced Kaspersky with ESET Internet security 11...and those issues are gone...

Now after I installed ESET...i would like to add a combo with it as 2nd option ...

Anyone can help me with that ?

ESET's got a really good firewall, so Comodo is not an obvious choice. Zemana's not as good as it used to be. I think OSAand HPA would be your best bets of these.

However maybe some would think CruelSister configuration of Comodo Firewall is so good you ought to substitute it for ESET firewall anyway, and I would respect that idea.

When you use a suite, you need nothing else, if you feel the need to add something,then it means you don't trust the suite so ditch it, take the AV version, add what you want.

Not necessary. A suite has many features but not all of them are strong. You can disable its weak feature and replace with a dedicated strong software instead eg. if you feel you need better ransomware protection you can disable the anti-ransomware shield in ESET IS and replace with a dedicated anti-ransomware software or have another anti-ransomware software as a complement as long as there's no compatibility issue

then i use a better solution if not satisfied. I never use a product if one of its feature will be disabled. It is the reason im still on WD, it is feature-less so i can add any powerful tool i can.

so use a less bloated AV or the version without the said feature then use the tool you prefer.

Choose the right suite as no suite is perfect in everything. Strengthening its weakness is the way to strengthening your PC System

You may try osarmor + voodooshield combo along with eset. Use custom rules for Voodooshield as Voodoo AI is naive at this moment. & if you wish, try to fiddle with simplewall along with your eset firewall, many of us wouldn't like it but trust me it will provide much more control over your network connections. & simplewall may prompt to disable your firewall at first, just don't disable it. Although if you are happy with eset firewall, you don't need it. Use syshardener to tweak your PC, & use good 2nd opinion scanner time to time.
