  • It depends on what it is. If you have something like Norton 360, it's all you need. The only negatives are an occasional false positive and it hogs up RAM and CPU (while scanning). Of course having a lot of little programs does too.

  • The best solution is to have an all-in-one solution plus a secondary scanner. You don't want 2 of the same security programs running at the same time if both have protection turned on as they can conflict with each other. Using an all-in-one solution with a freeware anti-malware scanner should be all you need.

  • Most anti-virus products do not have solutions to malware. So it is better to install antivirus and anti-malware at the same time on your computer. I have Avast and Anvi Smart Defender on mine. They works fine with each other.

  • I would run either Avast Free or AVG Free for the anti-virus and Malwarebytes Free for the occasional scan to get rid of baddies, or schedualed scans every day if thats your thing!

    These in my long experience using this combination are very good, the second any file is downloaded or a setting tries to be changed by something it alerts you and you just block it or remove file. Very easy to use
