Right Understands no product is perfect, and yes am trying out which one seem to like the best, am slowly getting tired of Avast, so removed it the other morning, and setup Defender, configured with ConfigureDefenderx64
So far so good for the most part, not too many noticeable performance issues as yet, though Laptop so far still running Avast Free for the moment, depending on how it goes on desktop, might switch Laptop as well (Laptop similar specs to Desktop, minus a little less memory)
Anyhow thanks for the very informative reply there
I suggest you to go with Bitdefender free av+OSArmor+Windows10 firewall+Some Google Chrome extension or Firefox extension like Bitdefender TrafficLight+emsisoft browser security+uBlock Origin
First of all i think "No AV" is needed for gaming i personally use NVT ERP(Lockdown) but if i have to pick i would like to pick Bitdefender free over avast and WD(No hate for Avast or WD) because it has lightness and good virus signature+Heuristic engine just set and forget.Nice config, but please don't take this the wrong way, I mean this in the absolute friendliness of ways , but can you elaborate why you would recommend this setup over the ones the OP asked about? I'm not saying its a garbage setup, but I think these discussions would be more fruit full if there were detailed explanations as to why, rather than posting a list of programs/extensions.
It lacks in certain features compared to more comprehensive suites, but then again security software is only as effective as the end user.windows defender is pretty good
