Programs that you would only use long time or permanently, not just trying out for a week or two. ( Not at the same time, one or two of you will ask)

I have a short list:

Microsoft Defender with ( Configure Defender, Simple Windows Hardening and Firewall Hardening)
Emsisoft

Malwarebytes
Malwarebytes Anti Exploit

Appguard

Voodoo Shield

OSArmour

Non security solutions:
Macrium Reflect
Aoemi
Shadow Defender

Nice topic 👍 My answer is quite obvious due to looong time using of two ingenious security apps...I mean
*SpyShelter
*Shadow Defender.
There is also another one fantastic app I would use if it will be still developed - Online Armor Firewall (not necessary developed by Emsisoft) ;)

There are few that I use for a long time and don't see me changing anytime soon (some are not real-time security):
Macrium Reflect, SUMo, uBlock Origin, Keepass, Veracrypt

For real-time AM solution I narrowed it down to ESET and Emsisoft. I change them approx. once a month and haven't decided yet, which I like better.

If it's OK to list even though one software is on hiatus here.

Microsoft Defender (b/c it's so amenable to third party software like OSArmor)
Sandboxie (waiting for a more stable released version of Plus)
NVT OSArmor
Hard_Configurator (select modules but keeps an open mind)

Kaspersky (using it >12 years)
AdGuard for Windows (using it >3 years)
Macrium Reflect (using it >4 years)
Sticky Password (using it >8 years)

These four are my Security Pillars on which my whole system is standing.
