    From what I can tell it is.. just as it is in Win8.1
    My bad! I think I got some things confused in regards to Defender. Not enough coffee yet this morning.

    I was thinking of doing the same thing when I do a clean install of Windows 10, but after reading this article at NetworkWorld.com I elected to go with the free version of BitDefender instead. Several friends recommend it and it seems highly regarded and reviewed by the searches I've done.

    That's why you run Malware bytes with Defender or any AV.. best way to go IMO.

    For the meantime I am using WD + Malwarebytes on my old spare laptop which has the W10 Preview installed. But when the free upgrade comes for my other daily-use laptop (Winds 8.1) I will install Panda anti-virus. Main reason is because Panda (and most other AV progs) has the very handy right-click 'scan with' facility where you can scan any individual file. WD would need this function too.

    How stable is Panda these days, it totally trashed my PC many years ago & I've steered clear ever since.

    Been using the free version of Panda for past couple of years and it's working fine with Windows 8.1. It's lighter on resources than Avast. Am keeping fingers crossed it will be OK with the RTM version of W10.

    I believe the data in that article refers to MSE and Windows 7 and not the current Windows Defender in Windows 10 but I can be wrong.

    There are a lot more factors to keep in mind when choosing an AV. The false positive is very important. There was an AV recently that flag itself and committed suicide. Others break installed software with there FP's, Defender has the lowest FP rate.

    You can read more about choosing an AV at Eight Forums under: AV Comparatives & AV Test Links
