I recently had malware problems that took me a long time to sort out. The reason being I was unaware that Malwarebytes does not scan for rootkits by default !! Lesson learnt.
I have now treated myself to a new HP Envy lap top, keeping the old Acer as back up. I am now security paranoid and have the following programmes installed and would like some input on effectiveness:
HP with window 8.1
Malwarebytes paid for, AVG antivirus paid for, Malwarebytes anti exploit free and Trusteer Rapport.,
Acer with Windows 7
Malwarebytes paid for, Microsoft security Essentials backed up by regular scanning with ESET online scanner, Superantispyware free, \Malwarebytes anti exploit free and Trusteer Rapport
To some of you it may seem over the top but to me its peace of mind. I would be grateful for any constructive suggestions.
