Don't know if this is the right sub-forum for this, but I'm curious what members are using for protection.  


I'm listing my security setup, please comment - e.g. what you would add, what you would eliminate etc.  It would be great if some members would list their own setup as well.  Perhaps various info can be gained that's of some value for many.

It is strongly recommended that you run only one antivirus program at a time. Having more than one antivirus program active in memory uses additional resources and can result in program conflicts and false virus alerts. If you choose to install more than one antivirus program on your computer, then only one of them should be active in memory at a time.

I have Eset Internet Security and uBlock Origin.

In Windows 10 it appears that Windows Defender runs harmoniously with a 3rd. party AV with real-time protection.  Never had any issues.  But I for sure get your point in many circumstances.
