    Yes, and perhaps MBAM paid subscription might give that extra piece of mind. Regardless, one AV is just not enough these days. You must approach security with a layered effect.

    Another thing you could do is change the DNS servers on your NICs to the Open DNS servers, which will protect you against known bad sites.

    I have used HitmanPro.Alert in various security configurations on windows 10, and in fact I even have a current licence.
    Right now I am running Kaspersky Total Security 2016, so I don't really need HMP.A, but I do like HMP.A a lot.
    It is a great complement to WD. It protects you from a lot of different types of exploits, and it doesn't slow down your computer. It is much stronger than Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit premium, because it does a lot more things to protect your system.
    It is actively developed and has decent support.
    It has a free trial.
    Compatible with most AVs.
    The various modules can be controlled and disabled individually, in case one of them conflicts with other software you are running.
