    I have SAS Pro running .. no problems

    Attachment 6206
    You realise SAS is a spyware removal program (which is very good) not an Anti Virus program. So its not advisable to rely solely on this program.

    The pole doesn't mention AVG which is what I use so I've not voted.

    Windows Defender+Malwarebytes Pro for now, I'll look at other stuff when I'm more settled with the OS.

    This is what I will be doing.

    So far Widows Defender and Malwarebytes is doing a great job on my Win 10 install. I'm still using Eset Smart Security on my Window 8.1.1 computers.

    AVG Internet Security 2015 (Paid) + Malwarebytes 2.10 Beta (Free)

    ~update~

    The free version of Malwarebytes doesn't have real-time scanning mechanism, but it detects some potential threats that AVG doesn't. Having them together makes me fell safe and comfortable !

    When I get the final(RTM) of Win10 I'll use Defender and Mallwarebytes paid.

    Good choice. Malwarebytes runs fine alongside with any other AV !

    I find it to be a good tool and it's helped me in the past.

    I've used it before too. In my case I'll keep using the free version, furthermore I have a paid subscription of AVG IS 2015. With them together and my sets of backups I'll be just fine in case of a "storm".

    I've got a G-Data licence until the end of the year but I'm not sure that it's really useful since I only visit known websites and don't download content.

    Nevertheless I don't know why there is still Windows Defender process in the background (antimalware executable service) ...
