Hello,

It's good to have it installed just in case. The free version doesn't provide real-time protection though.

Comodo FW (especially if you use Defense+) + Avira on WIN7 is a pretty secure system.

I donīt think you need more unless you practise very risky www practices (e.g. keygens/cracks).

If you want more security Iīd first look into using standard user accounts rather than administrator accounts. I think that will add more to your cybersafety than an on-demand scanner like MBAM.

Yeah, practising safe-browsing pretty much protects you from most threats.
