    Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

    I also switched my desktop and laptop from Avast! Free to Windows Defender a few weeks ago as well. No more annoying pop-ups and it just works. I also have MalwareBytes Anti-Malware free and I run it once a week manually just to be on the safe side.

    Even though I have a high end system, I've found that Avast is intrusive and bloated recently. It adds a layer between you and the internet which I don't like.

    I just use Malwarebytes Premium and Defender now.

    Been using Avast for last 10 years, but about to give up on using it as does add a layer, and intrusive I noticed more so now than earlier years

    Can't afford Malwarebytes Premium, so hopefully even with Malwarebytes Free i'm safe with Defender and Malwarebytes 3 Free--that is what nervous about if I can i'm safe enough with this new setup

    Run MBM say once a week and you should be good.

    Win 10

    I run defender and once a week I do a scan with the free malware bytes version but I don't have it running with any real time protection as I don't want any more performance impact. So far zero issues and its been a long time.
