    New laptop


    Hey guys bought a new Dell inspiron 15 with windows 10 and did a lot reading on free antiviruses and decided to go with only windows Defender and do my updates daily so I get my definitions for windows defender plus security updated for the system I usually use Malwarebytes but the same applies as the free antivirus software its free then when it finds something it take you to anther stage too pay to get rid of it am I right or wrong

    Wrong. You don't have to pay to remove anything Malwarebytes finds

    I use both, like many here. The MB Premium does have active monitoring, scheduled scans (incl Flash) and some extra layers, if that's important to you to prevent infections before they take hold. Otherwise, run MB Free scan intermittently and you can quarantine and remove infections on that version too.

    I use both, also. MBAM and Defender play nicely together. Some key factors in the MB Pro are it's active protection components.

    Too much for me, slows internet down and makes too many false claims. WD + MB free with which I comb system after any suspicious activity and periodically. WD is now catching some stuff MB is designed for so even that may become obsolete. Firefox and other browsers are also getting in same game trying to stop suspicious sites from installing and even opening known bad sites.

    MBAM will have no problems running alongside Defender.
