Sorry about not providing the OS. I'm using Windows 7 & Emsisoft Antimalware..
Ok, that's good.
Malwarebytes Premium 3.0.6 and Emsisoft Antimalware will run together.
So these two, together with uBlock Origin-Firefox and AddBlockPlus-Internet Explorer is all that you really need.
Which is basically what my Win7 system runs.

Hi Marvin,

You don't which version of 'Windows' you are running... Win7, Win8.1 or Win10 ?

When you say: Emsisoft Pro
are you referring to Emsisoft Emergency Kit Pro or Emsisoft AntiMalware ?
EEK pro is basically a portable scanner where as EAM is an installed and running in realtime program.

Malwarebytes Premium 3.0.6... The premium version will have Anti Exploit and Anti Ransomware programs running in realtime, so I can't see any advantage in running extra Anti Ransomware programs:
Quote
AppCheck (Free)
Kaspersky Anti-Ransome Tool For Business (Free)
You are better off running one and let it run unhindered.

uBlock Origin-Firefox is a much better and more up to date program than Ad_Blocker (ADB)-Firefox (Free) and is easier on resources.
uBlock Origin is more than an "ad blocker": it is a wide-spectrum blocker -- which happens to be able to function as a mere "ad blocker".
The default behavior of uBlock Origin when newly installed is to block ads, trackers and malware sites
.

AddBlockPlus-Internet Explorer, you'll need to keep this as there is no current uBlock Origin version for Internet Explorer.

3. Kaspersky Anti-Ransome Tool For Business (Free)
4. AppCheck (Free)
5. uBlock Origin-Firefox
