I have a To-Go installation of Windows 10. Since I may be using this in some slightly shady computers, I'd like to make sure I'm completely protected. I won't pay though, so only free options, which won't bug me, such as that ****** piece of **** Avast(have it on my laptop, okayish protection but it installed it's own browsers and annoys the **** out of me). Anything else should be fine. My idea was

-Panda AntiVirus

-Malwarebytes every night

-Anything else(rootkits, adware, etc?) Please suggest.

Thanks all!

Just make sure that you recognize everything, and, if you want, reinstall it every week from an ISO image file of a "safe" version with all the programs and stuff...

Basically, you would. 1) install Win 2-Go

2) Install/download everything onto it

3) Make a backup onto an ISO file through the win backup tool

4) Use the drive

5) scan the drive regularly (daily?)

6) reformat the drive and re download the ISO onto the thumb drive every so often to remove any malicious software... (maybe weekly? Biweekly?)
