    Which free antivirus will you prefer to use with win 10?


    What will be the right choice of a free antivirus with the new OS? The inbuilt Defender? Or long time trusted Avast? Or Avira? Or anything else?

    Have you guys tested any free antivirus yet?

    Let us know ... share your experience with us.

    BTW, my vote goes with Windows Defender.

    But I will try Avast and Avira there, too .... to see how they are performing.

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

    I'm going to use Avast. I do like defender but I just like the way Avast works over defender.

    Looks like I found the first compatibility issue.
    Avast will not run in Win10 so I'll use Defender for now.

    I use Defender and MBAM myself. It's all I've ever used with W8 as well. On W7 it's MSE and MBAM.
