Many including myself like MSE, Malwarebytes and the Windows Firewall.
I also use WinPatrol, but the choice is yours.
Your security is very good.

I think that my suggested combination is the best. Not for security only, but because they do not cause problems.
If I were you, I would download and begin to use WinPatrol. If you are happy with your other security software, I would keep it the way it is. If you become unhappy and ever want to change, I strongly suggest that you try MSE, Malwarbytes etc.

Winpatrol installed..The only thing that is preventing is I have 205 days of subs left and I dont want to waste that..

As I said, use Norton, use your subscription. If you decide that you want the free MSE, be sure to contact Norton; sometimes companies renew without asking. Then install MSE.

If you have the free malwarbytes, there will be no conflict. Once a week or so, you make sure it is updated and then run a full scan.

You may not notice it but MSE uses more resources than Norton.

No.
Running On-Demand scans with Malwarebytes is perfectly fine. MB & Norton get along just fine with each other.

I have Noton + Spywareblaster on my machine and they do well together.
As well as Malwarebyte for the monthly on-demand scan.

Norton only gets picky with other scanners that are real-time. So anything like that is not a good idea.

Mse, 7 firewall, and sandboxie is all you need. And some will say sandboxie is all you will need.
I dont think you will need winpatrol with mse since mse has some behavior blocking built in.
