    Ms WD is DEFINITELY next generation AV


    Hi folks

    I know a lot of people disagree with my thoughts on the current state of 3rd Party A/V systems these days on Windows 10 (ON HOME --not CORPORATE type computers) but people should perhaps read this to see where the next generation of protection is coming from :

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...ntivirus-tests

    Also follow the link in the article to : Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (Microsoft Defender ATP)

    I'm currently perfectly happy with WD and nothing else -- and it is updated very frequently indeed so is far more likely to be up to date than anything else --especially with loads more Windows builds appearing almost weekly.

    Cheers

    I use WD on most of my computers backed up by Malwarebytes.
    Mainly because its a pain to transfer Norton (which I have subscription to)
    to the others.
    I agree WD works very well on them.

    I also use WD + Malwarebytes.

    I wouldn't call WD next generation though.

    As its opening paragraph makes perfectly clear, that article is about enterprise threat protection not independent users of Windows 10 Home.

    And there have been many references in other forum threads to Windows Defender's excellent comparative results in www.avtest.org assessments.
