    Re: best antivirus?

    I am using only default Windows Defender, but never download suspicious software and don't go to strange websites

    Close - Comodo Firewall + Avira Free. Comodo's AV doesn't seem to score highly (or even appear in the tables); Avira is always at or near the top.
    I used Avast for years but it's become heavy and buggy.

    Another +1 for Windows Defender, with Malwarebytes at the ready for when things get suspiciously laggy

    No issues with Avast for me yet. I'll just hope it won't happen to me I guess

    When I installed 10 windows,I deleted my antivirus, think preloaded antivirus works fine too

    Re: best antivirus?

    I have tried many over the year namely Nod32, Sophos, Norton personal and business versions, Kaspersky, AVG and more that I can't remember. I now use Malwarebytes on all my systems. It does not have a firewall but in my opinion it is the best for malware removal and offers really good protection. I was lucky enough to buy my licenses when Malwarebytes was selling lifetime update licenses for about £20.

    Re: best antivirus?

    the stock anti-virus on Windows 10: Windows Defender. I have to say third-party anti-virus would slow down the performance.

    I have used webroot for 2 years, but currently switched to kaspersky.

    IMO nowadays when picking or even deciding if you really need an antivirus you should look at all the little extras they provide and see if its worth it for you (like for me kaspersky blocks access to webcam which is great). Oh and also shop around for deals, I got kaspersky for £20 for 2 years for 3 devices, a total bargain imo.
