G'day nastybloodlust, and Welcome to BC
Malwarebytes (MBAM) is not an AV...it is an anti malware.
having this installed with something like Kapersky or Bitdefender or Emsisoft is a good idea. Personally I use Bitdefender Free
Keep it simple. One AV.(bitdefender, Avast, avira, etc combined with MBAM is a good combination.
The next best thing to have after that is good surfing habits.......watch what you click on
Install an adblocker in your browser as well
Only 1 AV program should be installed at any time. They tend to "fight" with each other and this leads to some weird happenings.
Viruses are a specific type of malware designed to replicate and spread.....
malware is a broad term used to describe all sorts of unwanted or malicious code....potentially unwanted programs etc

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy
