    New Config (slight change)

    On all Pc's running Windows 10 removed NVT ERP and replaced it with VoodooShield (Freeware)

    Next change will hopefully be a New Synology NAS running Pi-Hole

    I have this core setup also--it's virtually nonexistent in terms of bulk and interference. The primary reason Defender is enabled now is to kinda check if Windows is OK, which is done simply via manually updating defs. That's it--hardly the function Microsoft intended, right? If any malware was flagged by Windows and not VS/HMPA first, I'd be astonished. But anything's possible.

    Added Telstra (my ISP) Broadband Protect - basically a DNS service provided by their "partner in California". My guess McAfee, as that is the AV they offer. Meh, it's free and I can ditch it at will. Thier DNS is the quickest for me anyway, so I'm not losing anything.

    + Norton, HMP.A, MBAM, VS and regular image backups with Macrium Reflect free = :)

    You could always add Sandboxie, and be even more sure :D

    UAC set to Never notify.

    Real-Time Protection
    Panda Internet Security (Safe Browsing disabled)
    AppCheck Anti-Ransomware

    On-Demand Scanners
    Cezurity Antivirus Scanner
    HitmanPro
    Malware Hunter
    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
    Winja
    Zemana AntiMalware

    Ad Blocking
    uBlock Origin (360 Extreme Explorer)
    Adguard AdBlocker (Baidu Browser)

    I see you have a lot of on -demand scanners. My theory is that if your real-time protection is working that on-demand scanners are somewhat irrelevant. I do a scan maybe once every 2 months and its only because I'm bored mostly, not that I'm worried about malware. But hey, whatever works for everyone.

    It is overkill and I only use them for very occasional scans. But, since they don't have any impact on system performance when I'm not using then, I see no reason to remove any of them.

    Windows 10 x64 AU with Windows Defender, Windows Firewall, VoodooShield Pro, Heimdal Pro and Adguard for Windows.
    PUA/PUP detection in WD is enabled.
    UAC is set to maximum with password required, disabled elevation of unsigned and disabled modern UAC prompt.
    My main browser is Google Chrome with enabled AppContainer lockdown and all plugins sandboxed.
    Really quiet, light and efficient setup :cool:

    Pretty similar setup. This covers most grounds.

    Has any malware ever been detected by these scanners? I also gave up scanning regularly as I had no detection for years (using MBAM and HitmanPro). I only do it if I see some strange behaviour which is always caused by configuration or conflicts, never malware...I know you prefer to investigate problems therefore scanning is probably the best course of action...

    Malware Hunter has never found anything. Cezurity (which I have not been using for long) has only identified PUPs that I installed myself and want to keep. But, it hasn't given me any false positives, and it's easy to whitelist anything you want to keep.

    The others, for the most part have only identified PUPs I installed myself, or leftover traces of unwanted software I had already uninstalled. Some time ago, I ran an adware installer from a rouge download site. One of the various sites which present themselves as legitimate file hosting site, but actually provide an adware installer for download rather than the actual software it claims to be. And some of these tools came in handy for cleaning up after that.

    For people who blindly run unknown files, I'm sure they could be more useful. But, I'm careful about what I run, which goes a long way towards keeping my computers malware free.
