Hi, i dont like to use antivirus software because my computer is crap. Then i dont want a antivirus software. I want like ThreatFire but only for scan for downloads and sometimes scan the computer like "Quick Scan".
If you buy Malwarebytes Premium and pair it with ThreatFire you can get okay protection with real-time (ThreatFire cannot work on it's own). However, the lightest config ever is Sandboxie and Malwarebytes. That's It.
If the OP wants real light-weight and efficient protection, I would go with Panda Cloud instead of MSE. And Windows Defender is more of an Antimalware rather than an Antivirus, but it depends of what he really wants in the end.
@MalwareFire , on topic for non-use of an AV, let's suppose your computer's performance is the reason behind not wishing to use a 3rd party antivirus. Well, then how about first removing some of the online flotsam & jetsam, collected over time, that may be causing your system to lag?
Consider the number of browsers (plus all extensions installed on each) and, additionally, programs installed that place a drain on your system resources.
Replace apps with portable versions, whenever possible, extracting (installing) onto a USB flash drive which helps to keep your system separately light and freer.
Hi Cats! Time freeze sounds interesting if you have kids using your PC. It's a sandbox. I have tired them in the past, but I didn't like it.
Old people don't like new things I always have a way to restore my PC back to a earlier time before changes were made. I can see how Time freeze might be away for some people to surf safely. Your sure would want some thing like that if you're not going to use a 3rd party Anti-Virus. For now I'll just use my trusted Macrium Reflect and Windows restore to a earlier time. I'm sure I can always recover from any disaster that comes my way even if I have to start from factory.
