I use Norton Internet Security as the main security and run MBAM and SAS manually if I think something is amiss, also the Eset online scanner as well.

Keep in mind that always update both the applications whenever new virus definitions are available.
ok but why i keep malwarebytes,kaspersky alone not enough,i think it's more than enough ?
& i don't like malwarebytes at all,i don't why so many peoples recommending it.because there are many great antiviruses in the market.e.g kaspersky,bitdefender etc

People recommend MalwareBytes because it just work is why. It is NOT an AV program.

Malware is getting more agressive all the time. The best defense is a good real-time AV product
AND
other trusted on-demand scanners

MalwareBytes is one of the best on-demand scanners out there.

While nothing is guaranteed - having a full regiment of tools and running them when an issue is first detected is your best shot at a clean system. Just because you don't like something, doesn't mean it isn't any good - lots of people don't like broccoli or spinach.

Glad you resolved the issue.

It is okay that you don't like some software but that doesn't mean it is not good. Nobody is forcing you to install it. People recommend it because it is a good choice to have . Anyways, we're all glad that you got your issue solved. Have a happy New Year

Can you be more specific? Perhaps we are doing something wrong.

Malwarebytes is amazing mate, its your loss, any nasty things creep in, good chance one of our members will recommend to use that.
