    I have changed my initial vote because I am now running Qihoo 360 TSE.

    PS. LOL I went back to WD. 360TSE is good but it's also the king of false positives. It even deleted Firefox yesterday...

    New Win 10 computer came with McAfee LiveSafe. Immediately uninstalled it and enabled Defender.

    In addition to MSE or Defender I also have MBAM real time on my other machines. Those all have lifetime keys and I am not thrilled with paying a yearly fee if I want it on this rig. I could run the free version of MBAM daily but wonder if there is anything at all equivalent to it, that is free? I don't think so but if anyone has thoughts. I don't think any of the other free AVs such as Avira or Avast have the, for lack of a better term, extra or different protection that MBAM offers.

    I use the best of course... Defender.

    If it wasn't so good, why in the world, does everyone compare to it.
    When I was young, and did weight training I would compare myself to Arnold and not Pee-Wee Herman
