    I have been using internet security programs such as Kaspersky, F-Secure and ESET for long time now to cover my Online Banking transactions. Other than that I only use internet for general browsing and downloading movies, - I have Express VPN installed which I use when accessing torrent download site for this activity. I am wondering if I were to use some other alternative such as Heimdal with an AV would it give me the safety cover for banking ? Would welcome any recommendations/advice.

    Windows 10? you are more than covered with windows defender :p

    antimalware, PUP/PUM, antiransom, antiexploit, (firewall is from windows), but NO impact on browsers or webpages, because it uses no buggy extension or other stupid "enterprise" rules. probably best of all - it does not push wrong updates for software like avast, avira and other silly update-programs.

    :D

    You don't need to add anything. Use one of three you've mentioned and you're OK.
