I currently have SpywareBlaster, OSArmor, AppCheck Anti-Ransomware, and ESET NOD32 antivirus installed on Windows 10 Home. I am using the free version of all of the software and trial version of ESET to test it out. Do any of these software conflict with each other because in ESET I see that it has a Ransomware Shield. Should I uninstall AppCheck and/or OSArmor? Also will I need anti-malware software with ESET because it looks like ESET also scans for malware?

No conflicts that I am aware of. I have OSArmor, AppCheck Anti-Ransomware and Emsisoft on two computers and the same combo with ESET on another.

I also have SpywareBlaster installed but would not put it in the same category as the above since SpywareBlaster is a program that restricts the actions of potentially dangerous sites by adding a list of sites and domains associated with known spyware, advertisers and marketers to the browser's "Restricted Sites Zone". See my comments in this topic for more detailed information about how SpywareBlaster works, what protection it provides and additional features.
