With MBAM there is no real need to keep it resident as the elements that it looks for are covered by the Avast webshield. You can set Avast to detect PUP's like Opencandy et al as well

Go to Settings > General
Place a tick in "Scan for Potentially Unwanted Programmes (PUP's) "
Place a tick in "Silent /Gaming mode"

Furthermore if you enable hardened mode Aggressive then any unknown programmes will ask permission to run. You can either block or set an exception to allow normal running

(different screenshot as I am currently running the bets )

If you have Avast running resident, cryptoprevent added and unchecky running then in reality you are well protected with Windows 10. Anything else is just taking up needless computing cycles :)

Please feel free to ask any questions as once you are up and running I guess you will want to stay that way :)

Okay let me ask you two things about Avast:

 

avast_exclusion.PNG

 

Is this exclusion page correct? I haven't touched it at all.

 

It seems to me some of these files are the ones we should watch the closest.

 

The same question for Network.

 

avast_friend_networks.PNG

 

I believe the first is standard loopback?

The second I have no clue.

The third - I have no idea about that one either.

The fourth is my standard IPv4 range, correct? So that should be trusted?

The fifth - unknown

The sixth and seventh are IPv6 standard? I dunno.

 

Thanks again!

Aye all the network addresses shown are for the router and any other computers that are or may be on your private network the ::1 is related to your Host file

The exclusions are good as they are files that can be written to or read and would not required to be scanned' However, they are not ones that should be allowed to execute without being checked first. The settings are default and good :)

This is my current network settings .. Again the new beta so it may look a tad different
