There is no universal "one size fits all" solution that works for everyone and there is no single best anti-virus. Every vendor's virus lab and program scanning engine is different. Each has has its own strengths and weaknesses and they often use a mix of technologies to detect and remove malware. In many cases choosing an anti-virus is a matter of personal preference and what works best on a particular system. You may need to experiment and find the one most suitable for your needs.

What is shown to be on your computer;

 

Running: Kaspersky Anti-Virus Service 17.0.0
Running: Kaspersky Secure Connection Service 1.0.0
Running: Malwarebytes Service
Running: Windows Firewall
 
Stopped: Kaspersky Anti-Virus Service 16.0.1
 
Post a link to the two programs that you purchased for us so that we can take a look, want to be certain that both programs are indeed intended to offer real time protection and that one is not just a Firewall.

Was aware of what the products are but was hoping to see what you had actually downloaded, no matter as the main concern was with Kaspersky and making sure that it provided full real time protection, the review here says that it does, continue with the uninstalling of Kaspersky and testing if you will please.

 

Just a quick reminder, don`t forget to make sure that you have your Kaspersky licence key secure before uninstalling it.
