    For "Real World", which is what a normal user would experience. Other tests (can look over graph in dropdown) use all known malware.

    I only "tried" it for a few months when it was on my laptop as trialware/bulkware, I kind of like it, but It cost $$$ where MSE/Defender is free. If I could afford an AV I would have gotten either Trend Micro or Bitdefender back then.

    But after years of using Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Defender and remaining malware & virus free, with no false positves, I would stay with Defender & Malwarebytes Anti Exploit(not to be confused with Anti Malware).

    Hi there

    COMPARATIVE AV reports are 100% A TOTAL WASTE OF TIME -- so the whole thread is an exercise in "Yawn-o-nomics" !!!

    My reasoning is here : (Note my remarks are for individuals / home users - not large corporate Lans)

    1) Any new virus etc can appear at ANY TIME so any past reports of effectiveness or otherwise of a particular piece of software will be HUGELY OUT OF DATE.

    2) Windows has a perfectly good built in system -- now built right into the KERNEL of the OS and updated often daily - any 3rd party AV software can't react as quickly - not without reverse engineering the kernel.

    3) The current OS is still being tested and modified - so any software that relies on hooks / parts of code integrating with the kernel might not work after the next Windows update

    4) most 3rd party stuff switches off the built in security -- and probably adds overhead to the OS.

    5) You can much better protect a computer with a decent FIREWALL and proper rules.

    6) most threats these days come from USER problems -- giving away passwords, opening "Scam look alike websites with harmful links", sending money to unckecked people etc etc.

    7) even Torrent sites don't have much / any malware in them now -- especially if you only download music / video with proper file extensions such as .flac, .mp3 .mp4 .mkv etc. Any virus say embedded into an mkv or mp3 file will be just NOISE for the music / video application or render the file unplayable --so no damage done. Don't open zip / rar / .exe / .msi files from torrents.

    Seriously folks - for individuals the day of 3rd party AV software is PASSED. !!!

    Cheers

    One AV is sufficient. Four would use unnecessary resources. Also Windows 10 already allows you to try third part AV software.

    These reports can be skewed anyway they want. I've seen different security rating sites and on one site a certain AV program may be at the top and in another in the bottom.
