    I'm sticking with Defender during the TP period.
    Last time I had Bitdefender on with 9860 it caused issues when I performed the update to 9879.

    Using the same and it works just fine and I used it with all versions of Win8.

    Using Webroot Secure Anywhere and MBAM. Defender allowed the download of malware infected software.

    I'm using Windows Defender while I'm using Win 10 TP. If I go with the consumer release of 10, I'll either stay with Windows Defender or install my copy of Eset Smart Security. I have until the end of May to decide if I want to renew my Eset license.

    Interesting- I have sworn a blood oath to my guru who set me up on a dual boot with Windows 7 and Windows 10 that I will not add any programs to Win 10.

    When he is not looking I will install ESET NOD32 and apparently one license will cover Win 7 and Win 10 because you cannot access both at once.

    To be honest, ever since Windows Defender was enhanced and streamlined for Windows 8, I've never really paid much attention to security.
    I guess that pretty much sums up my preference, I just go with Defender all the time.
