Windows 10: AV for Insider Preview

    AV for Insider Preview

    Already made mistake with Bitdefender 2017. Bit support says they don't support beta, which they consider W-10 Insider. Checking for refund.
    I see Kaspersky says the same.
    I'm a little nervous about just trusting Defender.

    Doesn't matter what antivirus you use, it will not going to protect you 100% all the time. That basically say, as long you have a good common sense, Windows Defender should do fine. You can add Malwarebytes Anti Exploit to protect against exploits, and Malwarebytes Anti Ransomware BETA to protect against ransomware, and Malwarebytes Anti Malware free and Hitman Pro for weekly on demand scanner.

    Thanks, Ducky.
    Great recommendations that I've mostly already implemented.
    Really wondering if there is any of the AV Suites have come out and said Insider was compatible.

    Insider is going to be around for a long time.

    I've been using Panda free, not had a problem with it, updating IP's using windowsUpdate only, has not fallen over during any upgrade install.

    I'll give it a try.

    Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14955 for Mobile and PC

    May want to post the question in the above forum.

    Personally, I think you are fine with WD and a periodic scan with Malwarebytes or another AV.
