Hello and welcome to these forums.


I am certainly not one of the experts here, more a novice/rookie pc user. I joined here a couple years ago after suffering many bug-related issues with my computer. The information I have gleaned from BC has been a godsend to me; the best thing I ever did was sign up here! I am way more knowledgeable now than ever before, particularly with regards security-related issues. 


I never get infected any more thanks to running some carefully selected freeware security programs (see signature below) that I chose on hearing recommendations and reviews about by certain long-standing members here.


I can recommend doing fairly regular scans with the Zemana scanner as obtainable in the Downloads section of BC, seems to find stuff that other suites might miss.


As it's security you seem most concerned about, I'd like to recommend you have a look in the General Security forum. Quietman7 has made many extremely informative contributions there (as have many others!) and his posts and links are packed full of up-to-date and incredibly useful tips, advice and essential information.

Im a rookie and purely recreational pc user. Im utterly obsessed with security (even though I consider myself a safe and law-abiding internet user!) and run a combo of the following freeware security suites.....

Windows Defender/firewall

Regular scans with Malwarebytes, AdwCleaner, JRT, HitmanPro
