Windows 10: anti malware scanner
anti malware scanner
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.

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.
Thanks , I will give them a try.
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.

Does anybody know if there is a better anti-malware than Windows Defender ?
I've always run SuperAntiSyware on my previous Windows XP & 7.
Since upgrading to Windows 10, the application has reported in excess of 700 hits, today it was 1,138.
I've never had that many!
I'm using Firefox Developer Edition, might that...
