I was searching for some tips to protect our systems from malware. My system got infected. I was trying to avoid this kind of attacks in the future. I got some information regarding this here https://nci.ca/what-can-you-do-to-protect-yourself-from-spyware-malware-and-ransomware/. I guess anti-malware software would be an effective option. Can somebody suggest me some best anti-malware options for my system?

Off course I can.

I would suggest that you get Malwarebytes 3.06 and perhaps HitmanPro as additional scanner,there are free alternatives also but in my opinion not so good.

And you need a good AV to go with that,but I guess you already have. :guitar:

Along with Malwarebytes I would also suggest you get their Anti-Exploit which will protect your browser from zero-day exploits.  They also have a beta product anti-rasomware that might provide an additional layer of protection.  I have been running all three for some time now and haven't had any issues.

If you use Malwarebytes 3.0 Premium, there's no need to download and use Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit and Anti-Ransomware since they have been integrated in Malwarebytes 3.0 as protection modules. Also, Malwarebytes 3.0 and Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware cannot be ran together at this time. Malwarebytes 3.0 Free (not Premium) and Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Beta can however.
