I personally use Emsisoft Anti-Malware and Windows Defender. That's all. I've found Emsisoft is lightweight, fast, and secure. I've used Malwarebytes in the past but so many false positives turned me away (I do have a lifetime license for it though). For browser security I use Edge Beta with uBlock and Emsisoft browser extensions. That's it.

I run Arch Linux on my laptop, and honestly, I don't see a need for AV on Linux. It's already much more secure than Windows :)

Hey, again, I have switched from Syshardener to Simple Windows Hardening, which is much better IMHO.:)
