Anti-Virus linkage

So here is where I still stand on my recommendations:

  1. Free Firewall Software by GlassWire - Monitors and logs network connections…more used for logging than “active firewall blocking”.
  2. Sysmon - Sysinternals core service to log application/network executions
  3. Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit - EMET - TechNet Security
  4. Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows - Core AV protection
  5. Malwarebytes Premium - Supplemental real-time AV/AM protection
  6. Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit - Free Zero-Day Exploit Protection - browser layer protection

If MSE seems too light, then I would swap it out for Bitdefender Antivirus Free.

There have been some developments in the AV world and opinions abound:
