    @MrHudson, Windows Defender is the NEW MSE in Windows 8.0/8.1 and 10, I just prefer at the moment using Using Avast Free Antivirus, as feel more comfortable with that, despite I may not need it, but better safe than sorry

    The default is that Defender scans while the PC is idle, and aborts the scan if you start using it. If you want to schedule your own scans that won't stop if you start using the PC, then you can use Task Scheduler. See this 'solved' thread...

    Can I schedule scans with Windows Defender?

    Actually I clicked on the link this morning, as I was in process of repairing Avast Antivirus as on every boot it was popping up to select Free or Paid version, so started clean install process on admin account, then Popup came for Ccleaner update from version 5.35 to 5.36.6728, so clicked to go get the update, selected free, Filehippo.com, hit Download latest version, and it resulted in that popping up with Trojan message.
    Get a better AV..

    Thank you, that helps since I do use it quite a bit during the evening watching movies.

    I thought I did choose a Better Av, as Avast Free always scores well in the various av tests sites, and have been using for like 10 years or 11, I lost count. I haven't had no more troajn alerts since on any PC, so think i'm all set now

    Did the 5.36 version actually turn out to contain anything malicious?
