Antivirus for Windows 10 users!

#1 Post by Ruston88 » Fri May 22, 2020 10:02 am

Hello all,

I'm a newbie here. I started using Windows 10 for a few months. Now I would like to set up a new Antivirus. Which one do you recommend?

Please let me know in your reply. Thank you so much!

If you stay on "proper" websites, W10 includes Windows Defender, which is usually good enough.

ESET ESS without doubt.. the best.. they have a free 'sample' on their web site..
i have been using it for many years..
if i had the coding skills to change my own banner i would put up a small ad for them but, alas, when i try making any changes the whole page goes wonky.. :oops:

I use Malwarebytes Pro (paid) and Defender; if you use another anti-virus (Malwarebytes is technically not an anti-virus), Windows will disable Defender. Many use the free version of Malwarebytes, the difference being the paid version is real time protection.

Hello guys,

Thanks a lot for your reply. I am interested in Kaspersky or Norton. Are they reliable?

Please let me know.
