    Thanks, Arc. I know I will and would love to join in. My PSU took a dive and awaiting a new ordered one to be delivered. It's in transit via UPS. Should arrive Tuesday. ISO downloaded and ready to be mounted to thumb drive. :)

    Just installed Win 10 on my Win 7 Pro x64 Sony Vaio. I was using Microsoft Security Essentials and MBAM with 7, but the Win 10 install prompted me to remove MSE. When I ignored the prompt and tried to continue with the installation, Win 10 automatically removed MSE as an "incompatible" program and then continued flawlessly with the installation. So for now, it's WD and MBAM on 10.:)

    As Avast - MBAM combo did pretty satisfactory job for me last few years, this will probably be my choice. While using Win 10 as only secondary OS I think I'll give Defender - MBAM combo a chance. Next 6-8 months till full 10 version can mean a lot of changes in Windows and malware and antidotes for it.
