Fresh Win 10 install, but is my security setup sufficient, or should I add MBAM?

Hi again, quietman7!


Thank you for the prompt and insightful reply! :)


It is nice to hear that you also still use WinPatrol, because then I can do the same, too.


I understand your point and will follow your advice, which is to keep HMP.Alert for the rest of the license period, but then to uninstall it in favor of Malwarebytes Premium.


All this time, I have thought that Malwarebytes Free would suffice since I have all the other anti-malware tools, but when upgrading to Malwarebytes Premium, HMP.Alert became redundant, so it is preferable to pay for Malwarebytes when it actually provides better protection than HMP.Alert.


And, as you state in your pinned topic; Supplementing your Anti-Virus Program with Anti-Malware Tools, both Emsisoft Anti-Malware and Malwarebytes Premium stop malicious processes before they can infect your computer.


Thank you very much for the help! :) The issue has been successfully resolved! :thumbup2:
