Im currently using Zemana Anti malware premium and Kaspersky free. Do they work well together?

And is there anything thats lacking in this combo?

Zemana Anti malware Premium and Kaspersky should work fine together without any conflicts.

 

I recommending adding an anti-exploit tool to protect against ransomware, zero-day malware, drive-by downloads, exploits, Exploit Kits and malvertising campaigns.


For the best defensive strategy to protect yourself from malware and ransomware (crypto malware) infections, see my comments (Post #2) in this topic...Ransomware Avoidance...it includes a list of prevention tools.

To protect your browser, privacy, help prevent advertisements & block websites, I generally recommend one or more of the following:

Notes about Adblock Plus and NoScript:
Google, Amazon, Microsoft pay to get ads past Adblock Plus
Adblock Plus is letting companies pay to let their ads through
Allowing acceptable ads in Adblock Plus
Attention NoScript Users - Adblock Plus

Backing up data and disk imaging are among the most important maintenance tasks users should perform on a regular basis to protect themselves from malware infection, yet it's still one of the most neglected areas.

IMPORTANT!!! When implementing a backup strategy include testing to ensure it works before an emergency arises; routinely check to verify backups are being made and stored properly; remove (disconnect) and isolate all backups from the network or home computer...if not, you risk ransomware infecting them when it strikes.
