    I been doing this before anybody ever heard much of the web and before AOL ,Facebook, Twitter,Reddit ,Myspace or the original Napster ...... we were on dial up usenet and BBS when I started .

    At a minimum inside of the Windows firewall I would reccomend Windows Defender (only in Windows 10 ) and mbam + mbam RTP like I'm using in this box, for newbies or just folks wanting more protection maybe Avast or AVG free for more protection instead of Windows Defender and ofc free Mbam malware scanner + Mbam RTP and in any case Google Chrome x64 as the most secure web browser .

    IMO You don't need to pay for AV & malware protection others may feel like they need to & have favorites opinions will vary. .

    OTOH nothing is foolproof and people are often foolish don't forget to back up

    Trusting an AV alone to protect you, and throwing caution to the wind,
    is like the people who drive like idiots, trusting that their cars safety systems(all the three letter acronyms(ABS, ESC, EBD and so on)), are going to keep them from having an accident!

    You can never trust any software no matter how high the ratings are to be 100% absolute protection for every possible circumstance. But there is also an old saying that does tend to foot the bill as far as "An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure"! Common sense lacking can allow many possibilities as far as getting burned!

    As an example of something that I just inquired about pertaining to one vendor that looked familiar I had never ordered from however when clicking on a newsletter that came in Firefox suddenly springs up some Mozilla scam attack warning page. Apparently some script on the vendor's home page tripped an alarm bell while the vendor's site is free and clear of any malwares! The inquiry found no complaints about the vendor at all. The web filtering with the av software's firewall would have blocked out any suspect site. False alarm.

    Now in contrast on two occasions back in 2013 one while going to order a micro atx board for an old case and an order for something else non related the sites appeared completely normal one found on a general Bing and the other lead off of a regular shopping site. They were scam sites!

    The one for the board had only been up for a few months only and then shut down quickly being a hit and run trap site and the other started asking for more money to ship where they claimed they would refund and never did. Buyer Beware! Malwarebytes, Avast, Kaspersky, AVG, VIPRE, Trend Micro, etc. No good! Fortunately I use a preload type debit card since the first vendor tried making a $2,600 purchase online to Istanbul, Turkey! The other wasn't US based and these are why there complaint centers.

    For any paid softwares excluding sites like those you would something like what Firefox saw as far as jumping the gun with a false alarm rather then having a Bad Day! As you can see it wouldn't matter any what program is in use you still have to be on top of the game at all times in order to avoid those "UT OH" moments!

    And people wonder why I don't particularly care for Malwarebytes? For an independent sweep of a system when you suspect a bug could be hidden somewhere a stand alone special removal tool that can be run live may be needed. How to download and use VIPRE Rescue : Support

    No @Wynona that isn't it. You're thinking of Anti-Ransomware Beta.

    Anti-Exploit does this:
    Instant exploit protection


    Provides four layers of protection that work together to block exploits instantly. This happens in both in the first stage of the attack, preventing shell code execution, and the second stage, memory calls and sandbox escapes, and memory mitigation bypasses.



    Doesn't slow computer


    Doesn't require frequent updates because it doesn't use a signature database like traditional antivirus solutions. And it only takes up 3 MBs on your hard drive—the size of one high-resolution photo.



    Protects vulnerable programs


    Secures programs associated with older operating systems like Microsoft Windows XP that are no longer patched and protected by their makers. So you can keep the operating system you like without being exposed.



    Works with other security solutions


    Operates at a different level from and independently of anti-malware and antivirus programs, so you can install it without worrying about conflicting with other security solutions.
