    ............ the main reason is I like Defender. Plain and simple.
    Agree with you Cliff. Even tho I have had a subscription to Kaspersky, since 2016, I no longer feel safe with it considering all the discussion about the owner and his background. I know many don't trust Microsoft, but I do much more than Kaspersky. Just my preference - not a political statement.

    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.
    I hate when that happens.

    @kimkl - possibly you just did not realize. At the bottom of every forum page.

    You should use only 1 realtime AV, you already have 2, Malwarebytes and AVG.
    How should MalwareBytes protect from Malware, Ransomware and Exploits if it's not used as a realtime AV? I'm using WD + MB and work fine together.

    In any case Mbam is not an AV but it's anti a lot of other stuff. Except for some early occurrences it cooperates just fine with WD.

    Now I have used Kaspersky paid for for the last six years and lets face it you could read all sorts of crap into them collecting info/data for his home country so the same could be said for an American based AV company collecting the very same from users in Russia or what was termed the eastern block seems to me a lot of paranoia going around at the moment and again nothing is safer than you being careful whatever you use.

    One thing I might add is that Kaspersky for a long time now has NOT liked playing with MBAM in any form in fact it was one of the defining issues in my Ivy build having so many problems over the last 18 months. I should I suppose say that it out here anyway.

    Going to the blog part where Shawn sowed the distribution areas in my experience it sometimes does not always download the first or even maybe the second time so one just has to keep trying.
