yeah my habits are safe , that i never hard a trojan virus or anything else on my computer thats online 24/7/365...Have to apologize for my short hand I'm on mobile at the moment, my point was to ask how you think you are doing habit and knowledge wise these days. You have been a member since 2014 although not a lot of participating, you must have read and learned some here by now. Do you feel your habits are healthy enough to run defender and be fine? See, this is not a question others can answer for you, they can just give opinions, but if they are based off what they are able to do or products they like, it will not be benefit to you. So the best question is just what I asked, do you feel capable with defender?
Then you will be fine with defender, and because it's part of the ecosystem it will be the best compatibility. No need to spend money and introduce more issues to your system with a 3rd party app.yeah my habits are safe , that i never hard a trojan virus or anything else on my computer thats online 24/7/365...
Same with ESET SS Premium after an update, nothing short of full upgrade of win10 with MS tech help would fix the firewall issue. Now "testing" NOD32 using windows firewall (& CyberLock) and so far that combo has been good, except the update to NOD32 188.8.131.52 had "browser protection" error requiring a reinstall of NOD32.My experience is probably unique and either had to do with user error or something specific to my setup. However, I really liked Eset until I decided to uninstall it (ESET Internet Security). Upon uninstall, the process somehow seriously messed up my firewall settings and I could no longer access the internet with any program or browser. It took quite a bit of time and pain to finally figure out how to fix it. Thankfully, Tweaking.com-Windows Repair ultimately fixed the issues for me.
Eset has started to put a lot of bloat into their products. I think the good old Internet security is the edition you should use. Or NOD 32 antivirus without firewall if you are so inclined. "Premium" and "Ultimate" are bloat filled products with password managers, VPN and something they call "Cleanup of meta data"!And to a horrible price! I think Eset start to be a little to clever for their own good.yes, ultimate version
