    bitdfender free does not officially support windows 10, although in my experience it works fine and is fully functionable.

    On windows i would choose windows firewall and an av of your choice.
    I use linux and i only have the ufw enabled and no other security software.

    1. AppGuard (locked down)

    2. Sandboxie

    3. HitmanPro.Alert
    These are the solutions I would trust to protect my system alone. With alone I mean not combined.

    Sandboxie and/or Shadow Defender are indeed very effective in keeping a system always performing well, even though identity/credit card information theft might be hard to prevent. I still believe a good imaging program is arguably the best single program for most contingencies.

    Standard user accounts, Excubits (Bouncer+Pumpernickel+Memprotect) and EMET. Chrome as default browser.
    If money is not limited you could replace EMET with HitmanPro.Alert.
    If you can take a little performance hit I would add EMSISOFT Internet Security (or ESET).

    @ The Red Moon.
    Me too, for a long time. But somehow got a Linux variant of the Jerusalem virus on a relatively new install of Mint 17.3 (Rosa). Re-installed the OS.

    Updated both my Maya and Rosa versions of Mint with these scripts (as per this reference) :
    NOW, I'm also running NOD32 AV for Linux. (link here).

    Simple to install and uninstall.
    Download the debian 32bit or 64bit version, right click the downloaded file, select properties, go to the permissions tab, select the radio button to make it an installable file, then double click and follow the prompts.

    Runs well.

    Also, still run Clam on demand, and Bleackbit (minimal settings).

    feandur.

    VoodooShield + Malwarebytes Antiexploit might be enough.

    EXE Radar Pro + Sandboxie + Shadow Defender = light yet very powerful
