It's unknown (to me) what "enough" means to you. I believe Gringo would have gone over your security setup with you and offered some recommendations at your parting so my first inclination is to advise you to fall back to that thread and bookmark it so you have the information he gave you at hand.
Thank you for your post. That seemed to do the trick.
Good to know...glad to help.
...I was wondering if I had to purchase Malwarebytes. Do you know? I thought they had a free version, but now it is tell me my trial period is over.
No need to purchase MalwareBytes but you certainly can if you so desire. I might add, it's not a bad investment when considering the few bucks for the license vs. time, money and effort spent to bring back an infected PC.
If you choose not to purchase the license though, I can tell you they DO have a free version.
If the nag screen is bothering you regarding the free trial, simply uninstall what you have, download a fresh copy, and during the installation just be certain to remove the check from the option box that authorizes the trial version.
Once you do that, the MBAM utility in only it's free version will be installed, which of course, will be "feature limited". You will just need to remember to run manual updates for it often (as it is updated quite often...even during the course of one day). And you will need to remember to run manual scans rather than being able to automate that particular feature.
Another question I had for you is what I should do to protect my pc when I go to China next month on business. Any idea? I was told to use a VPN so I can view/unblock certain sites, but will that be enough to protect my machine when I work? Please advise if this is in your purview. Thank you so much!
