    So far Defender and MBAM free. Might give SAS and Hitman a try also.

    I think that is really a bad news, Jeff. Avast is a great antivirus, and obviously the second choice after WD. Hopefully Avast will sort it very soon.

    It's just a matter of time before it will work with Win10.

    Defender and free version of malewarebytes, although I haven't been able to install 10 yet, but I know that's what I'll use.
