I see few mention it, but I consider it also well worth having

Emsisoft Anti-Malware for best protection - Free removal of Viruses, Bots, Spyware, Keyloggers, Trojans and Rootkits

It gives you 30 days full protection if you want it, then reverts to an on demand scanner. I just choose to decline the 30 day full, and install it as free from the beginning.

Yes mate I saw that today in the AV Comparatives report and if I wasn't Kaspersky set I would try it as my doc has raved about it for years.
I like the Emsisoft Emergency Kit too for a on call scan too - very good and has found heaps of stuff even the KISS and MBAM and SAS have missed. Emsisoft Free Emergency Kit: portable malware scanner | Free removal of Viruses,Bots, Spyware, Keyloggers and Trojans you only really need run the Emergency Kit and Command Line scans

Emisoft gets my vote and I'm sold on it. I just tried out the Emergency Kit. Other than dropping a shortcut on my desktop when I installed the package to a removable drive, it found three items that MBAM and MSE didn't.

After seeing a thread here the other day about YouTube downloads (Yes, I know the subject is restricted) , I watched a YouTube video about a person claiming that software is not needed. I should have known better but my curiosity got the better of me and clicked on the links provided. They didn't work and I dismissed it. Well, turns out the site attempted to load software and messed with Registry settings. I'm sure MSE blocked the actual running of software but the registry tampering must have slipped through.

Here's what the site did. Note that it disabled Task Manager and Registry Editor. So lesson learned.

Hitman pro and malwarebytes are great at detecting those reg changes as well. So is panda and avast.

My problem is I have local group policy enabled for my lady, (with those restrictions in place) so it warns me all the time and I have to keep ignoring it.

Those are Group Policy settings, they can also be from running Junkware Removal Tool(JRT). I have them as well, and Emsisoft is the only program to list them. They are simply settings that could be abused by malicious malware. They are set to disabled (otherwise your Task Manager and Regedit would have been disabled). They do not exist on Windows by default, but I know mine came from JRT. It would not hurt to quarantine or delete them.
