My desktop PC is fully protected by paid for quality virus and malware software. I feel that action has kept my desktop PC working in top condition.Once a week usually on the weekend I do a full Malwarebytes Scan as well. Merry Christmas fellow members :-) What are people here using for AV/Anti Spyware etc for windows 10 that doesn't have issues with the new system Can some people name a few that's worth using or is windows defender malwarebytes all you need these days My Main PC still has Windows 7, this all in 1 desktop got for my birthday not long ago is a play around machine to test windows 10 on it :) Windows 10 still has a fair bit of work ahead no doubt but its slowly growing on me I share your pain buddy, I'm sticking with windows 7 until support runs dry in 2020. Edit coming up ( funny thing is I was trying to find my post in Windows 10 thread, where I thought we were discussing that posters comment.One license will protect five home computers, which is a very nice aspect of this antivirus software product.Ahh the old F-Prot now that brings back memories, they have been around for yonks, competing with Mc Afee as one of the pioneers back in the day.It stalls and affects the devices – even though it claims it doesn't. Nor would I use Norton at this stage, as it gave an older computer a virus, after claiming it was up to date, and I promptly returned it.Okay thanks Their is KIS & TIS as above, both 2015 (which were are copyrighted 2014).f As stated above should I wait or get the 2016 version, or get this year's version & just get the updates at a cheaper price & 'discounted' price?Detected everything I threw at it, excellent performance, negligible system impact, recommended.(multiple engines, cloud only) it is designed as a companion AV and nil issues with Win10.
On Windows 10.1 I'm currently just using Windows Defender because for some reason AVG was not playing nicely.
The advantage of doing that is that rogue extensions that arrive will be deleted on the next scan (free version). Quicker than other complementing anti-malware solutions. I run a full malware & virus scan once per week (in addition to running Avira in the background).
Both programs work flawlessly under Windows 10, and keep my system free of malware and viruses.
Additionally, the Anti-virus for SME thread can be used for discussion regarding SME (Small/Medium Enterprise/Business) environments.
Nevertheless, it would be better to install F-Prot Antivirus than to try to survive on the security that comes native with Windows.
Have a look around some of the freebie sites, there is a promo for a 12 month premium licence floating around. First attempt results in an immediate fail with no Internet.
