Windows 10: BEST Anti-Virus for Windows 10 Pro ??
Norton Internet Security, Sophos Rootkit scanner and of course MalwareBytes. It is the internet be careful where you go and what you do once you get there.
I tried the vast majority over the years and the only one that has kept the computer perfectly clean for over three years is Kaspersky . I thought my parents were hopeless as they got infected constantly with Security essentials , no issues at all since using Kaspersky .
Their Vulnerability scanner is outstanding.
You got to set a few things differently to prevent system slowdowns , used to be a real resource hog, not anymore.
Kaspersky has major issues with windows 10, i have to uninstall it two weeks ago until they fix all those issues.
Eset Smart Internet Security 9, Malwarebytes, Malewarebytes Anti Exploit Pro, Hitman Pro -
for me a Long time the best combination.
Not for me at all, works perfectly . You have to download their latest version though or it won't be compatible. I am talking about Kas Anti Virus only , their Internet security may be a different story.
I am talking about internet security,I even applied beta patches-it was still buggy for me
In addition to @fredc's excellent advice....
There are some known bugs with the current 2016 versions, some of which were fixed with patch (b), and others not yet fixed.
But, just checking -- did you:
- Follow the KL "best practices" to cleanly install KIS/KAV/KTS 2016 and to fully disable Windows Defender in Win10, as explained here and here?
- Use the software vendors' removal tool(s), if available, to completely and cleanly remove all traces of other Antivirus/Internet Security products, as explained here (KL products have always been twitchy about leftover drivers and other remnants of certain other AV products)? (Certain anti-malware applications, such as MBAM & MBAE need not necessarily be uninstalled in order to install KIS 2016, and they can be reinstalled later, if needed.)
I hope this helps a bit,
BitDefender 2016 works well for me, had no reason complain about it at all.
Could you point out this supposedly good advice by fredc ? I just don't believe it , would need some kind of proof if not too much trouble.
Ahh nevermind , thanks MM.
See page 112 of the KIS 2016 User Guide at http://docs.kaspersky-labs.com/engli...erguide_en.pdf which states 'limitations' under Windows 10.
I won't be upgrading to Windows 10 unless I can use a fully functional version of KIS 2016 under Windows 10. Kaspersky advised me a fully functional version should be available by the end of September but the documentation indicates this hasn't been released yet.

Recently, I saw many people asking about the working anti-viruses for Windows 10 Technical Preview, so I decided to create a thread and share the information. Because Sharing is Caring!
Here is list of some anti-viruses which are...
I've always run SuperAntiSyware on my previous Windows XP & 7.

I've never had that many!
I'm using Firefox Developer Edition, might that...
