comment What security products are necessary or advised for a home computer running Windows?
Is MSE along with the Windows firewall enough? According to here it is answers.microsoft.com/en-us/protect/forum/mse-protect_start/… Why is it sometimes numerous other programs are used e.g. combofix hijackthis, rkill as seen here techspot.com/community/forums/virus-and-malware-removal.28

comment Antivirus keeps blocking connection from a file I don't recognize
The message says "malicious URL blocked" which is not the same as "virus found". It doesn't give the option to delete. Also it is very different that a possibly legitimate file is trying to access an infected site than the file itself being a virus.

Why wouldn't the antivirus detect the actual file and only block its connection?
