    anti malware scanner


    Hi
    I have tried Trend Micro, Emisoft and a couple of other stand alone scanners to check my a/v program - Defender.
    Each has been detrimental. One left "bin" a folder that only Unlocker could remove.
    Another I had to use Revo to uninstall.
    Is there a reliable one that does not leave you sorry you used it. I use Defender with MBAM and Exploit behind a router but would like to occasionally check Defender which is not known for its integrity when it comes to detection.
    defender works well with Win 10 which it should and is light but I cannot have it both ways as far as detection goes.
    There are a couple that are notorious for false positives.
    TY

    Hi.
    If you mean you'd like to run something every once and a while just to make sure Defender isn't missing something, you could use ESET online scanner. It's very good.

    HitmanPro is great, it uses multiple AV engines and it is scanning super fast, free version only scans.

    If you're using MBAM along with Defender then you should be all set

    It seems to be the case as 3 programs gave me a clean slate.
