    It's 100% sure that AVG turned WD off, no doubt about it but you are in good hands with AVG although WD is nothing to be sneezed on as of lately. I have been using WD since W10 came out and didn't need any other overhead from 3rd party AVs. Was using Avast before that.
    Yup, just uninstalled AVG and that kicked in Windows Defender.
    Now, what about adding EMET 5.5 (Defender, I know, is something of the EMET line...or vice versa)? The 5.5 is compatible with Windows 10, so the two should work in tandem, I would think, and be that much better. What do you think?

    I was going to go with AVAST as well instead of AVG, but if Defender and EMET get along fine (and apparently they do), then I think you're right that I'm good to go.

    They do get together but I'd rather ad Malwarebytes pro because it deals with stuff that AVs don't. I just comb system with it and Advance cleaner every now and than and that proved to be enough for me.

    Yeah, I agree. Can't afford to pay for Mal Pro right now, but I do run the free version periodically.

    Thanks much,
