    I love WD but I dislike its new interface greatly.
    The old interface is still there, if you know where to look.

    Yes. Thanks. I already know about that. MS should ask what people think about its new interfaces though.

    Think you would be in the minority in my opinion.
    So many new features added making the old interface redundant.
    Familiarity and comfort blanket from your point of view perhaps?

    Hmm. Maybe. I think you just have to get used to the new interface. That's the extent of it, probably.

    Best antivirus and antimalware advise is use your head and good old fashioned common sense when you are surfing, I also use Kaspersky Free antivirus and Malwarebytes Premium.
    I've have not had any problems for many years........

    Your above quoted AV,s conflict....you should only run one, in your case Malwarebytes Premium which is a complete paid for AV Suite.

    To check open Control Panel, System and Security, then Security and Maintenance.....click on Security, under Virus Protection it should advise.
