I am using Microsoft Windows 10. I don't have any Anti Virus programs on my computer, and I am not planning on getting one, and using it.
I am a techie, so I don't have to worry about viruses.
I know how to get rid of them on my own, so this isn't a problem, for me.
I have been using Microsoft Windows 10, for a while, and I never got any viruses. Because I am careful of how I use my computer.
I try many times to worn people WHAT NOT TO DO, and nobody wants to listen to me, so you people can learn the hard way.
For some reason people think anti virus programs are good to use. SAYS WHO? I don't care about people saying to me using anti virus programs is a good thing. Because this is all lies.
Yes, I have used different anti virus programs in my past, for me to realize that NONE OF THEM WORK!!!
Lets say you use an anti virus program. There are no guarantees that any part of your computer won't get infected if you use this type of program. There is a possibility that some viruses won't be found during a scan, and quarantined. Yes, a virus can be quarantined by an anti virus program, and maybe deleted as well, but what happens if the user deletes a sensitive file from the O/S that the O/S requires? All you will get is more problems. THAT'S ALL!!!
If your not careful, then you might infect your computer with something, and then someone might say I told you do. 🙂
Do this on-line scan first > http://www.eset.com/online-scanner
only if you think you might be infected now.
i suggest you go and get Avast > http://www.avast.com/en-gb/get/5xsXs5iq
you can not get a better anti virus with anti spyware system for free.
it has many features you will have to pay for in other systems.
it is virtually exactly the same as what they used to call the professional version
and you had to pay for it,
except now it now has a more modern look
and it is now completely free.
Another Top free one is,
Avira AntiVir Personal > http://www.avira.com/en/avira-free-antiv…
has higher proactive and reactive detection results
than Norton or Kapersky and quite a few others.
if you pair any anti virus system with
malwarebytes anti malware > https://www.malwarebytes.org/lp/sem/5/?gclid=CNGk-o7o68UCFarpwgod4DsAGw
you will hAve comprehensive protection.
you must only have one antivirus system on your computer at anyone time.
If you want a complete internet security suite there is,
Comodo Internet Security for Windows : http://www.comodo.com/home/internet-security/free-internet-security.php
Avast is very good but may prevent the start menu from working avast is working to correct that problem.
In the while I recommend panda free which is a heuristic and cloud based av and seems really good right now.
Windows Defender. It is built in to Windows 10.
We tested Comodo ANTIVIRUS for Windows 10 and also compared to its other competitor brands. I would say Comodo fares well than another in terms of prevention and detection.
If you're not paying for it, you’re not the customer, you’re the product being sold.
The no.1 antivirus in the world is you. Learn how the internet works and how they plant things on your puter. Remember, free is never free on the internet. When they say free think about what else is going to be installed on your puter. When they say free think about your personal data being leaked by what the free AV let in. These companies offering free AV have to make money some how. They do it by selling out to the corporation who peddle spyware and adware. There is a lot of free AV and firewalls on the market that are more spyware then security product. The worse thing about free AV is that they do not have PUP (potential unwanted program) protection. Just detecting viruses is just part of what a AV should do. Detecting spyware and adware is another part of it. While they might catch some of the rogue PUP out there, they let PUP by major corporations get by. It is like they do it intentional. I have spent many hours digging out and removing PUP that the user never knew got installed and all of them ran free AV.
Comodo is a perfect example of this. The got caught selling its user out to the highets bidder.
There are so many more but if you use a free anything kiss what little privacy you have left. If you're not paying for it you're the product.
