    Hi there
    these days for HOME type computers -- only 2 possible answers

    1) Human Brain to avoid obvious scams - e.g cloned / fake web sites offering tax refunds etc and a zillion of other common scams

    2) WD -- it's based on the really robust security built into Ms's AZURE cloud servers -- the security is regarded as one of the best if not the best in the industry.

    Days for 3rd party A/V products on Home computers are over - they were designed for last Century's systems - W10 these days has ramped up security very well with WD, it's updated frequently and I doubt whether anything else is found by other packages that WD fails to notice.

    Cheers

    I have chosen Panda Free, because it is as light as it can get, RAM, CPU and disk wise.
    But note, that it is not as good as other AVs, though it is sufficient for a conscious user.

    Windows Defender has come a long way over the last few years [ never thought I would say that ] and is now pretty good. Previously, I used to install AVG - FREE on clients computers, but NOT any more unless specifically asked to.

    There are quite a few FREE AV's, all with Pro's and Con's. I think it is upto the individuals needs and requirementa as to which one they choose.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks for mentioning panda. I might try it later.

    Thank you all. I am now considering a few file access adjustments to defender to speed up windows and will see what'll happen.

    In my opinion, after years of testing and installing different AVs and after verifying that WD improved a lot, I usually use, once every x, a week, two, a month, Dr Web CUREit and do a full scan.

    I always thought that a second opinion is better from time to time to make sure, tests, review of questionable emails, etc., I use a DVI in VirtualBox to test.

    Greetings.

    I benched my pc with Norton, Windows Defender, Kaspersky, and Webroot. Webroot let my pc run the fastest, but only by a few percentage points. I run an i3-9100, and I'm quite pleased it, and Webroot. As far as protection goes, they're all good, take your pick and go with it.

    Defender is fine but I augment it with offline scans using AdwCleaner NVCleanstall (v1.8.0) Download | TechPowerUp
