    Infallibility is really a bogus argument. Please tell us which AV company, or any other company for that matter, is infallible. All AV companies are always playing catch up. It's the nature of the industry. But, there is no other company that knows the inner workings of an OS better than the company that designed it.

    I haven't implied any are, just that the belief that a single update will solve all problems is daft.

    Your argument mirrors mine from Announcing Kaspersky Free Anti-Virus - Page 6 - Windows 10 Forums

    My scan found several "positives" so I will use Virus Total scan later to verify.

    Have installed Kaspersky on my Insider, fortune favours the brave....joking aside, full scan 20 mins, quick scan 40 secs.
    Clean as a whistle.....

    I have not lost faith with Defender as on 3 other computers....await the Creator Autumn Update when its security will be reinforced with the addition of Application Guard and Exploit Protection.

    I prefer a 'belts and braces' approach so I also use MS defender periodic scanning, Malwarebytes (not real time) and AdwCleaner.

    I'm surprised nobody has commented on the potential vulnerability of Kaspersky being a Russian company. I expect it depends whether you have concerns whether the backdoors into your PC are via the NSA or FSB.
    If they want to use a backdoor to look in my computer their going to die from boredom.

    I think the worry is that with so many computers in the West having Kaspersky installed, buried sleeping code could be activated to damage key digital infrastructure before taking over the World.
