    Windows security.


    I ditched free antivirus a while ago and have been using defender today i noticed the site below only shows results for windows 11 i am using 10, could someone tell me if there is a similar site for Windows 10.

    Is windows security for 10 still better than the free ones like AVG, Avira, Avast etc.

    What do members here use or recommend?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello @Max Headroom,

    There are quite a few websites that give you the different Antivirus comparison statistics and charts. Here are a couple:

    > Real-World Protection Test Feb-Mar 2023 - Factsheet
    > AV Lab

    Microsoft Defender [ formerly Windows Defender ] has come a LONG way over the past few years and is now VERY good and more than capable. I also understand that Malwarebytes is VERY complimentary with it.

    I hope this helps.

    Windows security [Defender] is the same utility on both Windows 10 & Windows 11.

    Defender is about as good as the best third-party ones and better than many of them.
    Defender is all I use.

    Hello, Max.

    Personally, I use Windows Security along with Malwarebytes Premium. I have never had an issue. I believe Windows Security to be perfectly good, for my needs.

    Wishing you the best.
