    List of Anti-Viruses working in Windows 10 TP


    Hello guys,

    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 tested and found working on Windows 10 Technical Preview. [Note: Some of them might lack in their features]


    • Bitdefender antivirus free edition
    • Mcafee Antivirus Free
    • Avira Antivirus Free
    • ESET Smart Security
    • Avast 15
    • Webroot Secure Anywhere Endpoint Protection
    • AVG Antivirus Free | Might work


    If you know any, feel free to share with us. I will update this thread.

    I've been using Comodo Internet Security 8 Beta and it has been working fairly well for me in Windows 10 TP, I did notice that the "Fully Virtualized" sandbox wasn't working 100% correctly, sometimes things simply wouldn't launch in it. Worth bearing in mind is that it doesn't officially support Windows 10 yet.

    One issue I did notice was when updating to build 9860 of Windows 10 TP, the firewall of CIS got trashed so I had to reinstall.

    So generally it works fine, however it may have issues with Fully Virtualized sandboxing, although that could just be my system, don't know, either way I don't really use it, prefer HIPS.
