Where can I find an unbiased review comparing the various AV software with Windows Defender?
(e.g. Macafee, Norton, Kaspersky, AVG, BitDefender, Trend Micro Titanium, G Data Total Security, Webroot SecureAnywhere, Vipre, F-secure, Zone Alarm Pro Antivirus, Panda Global Protection, Avast! Free Antivirus... etc. )
...Do I need ANY of these on Windows 8.1 if I am using Window Defender + MBAM ?
I have just reinstalled my PC completely. I have re-instated my data from a PC that was infected with malware. So I think I need a better anti-virus software. I was using AVG + Malwarebytes. And then Windows Defender + MBAB.
AVG never found anything. Malwarebytes was much better. Windows Defender is hard to see what is going on. And I keep getting messages from Teamviewer (remove control) saying that it is worried that the PC is not protected...
With Windows Defender being free there is a strong suspicion that it will not be as good as other systems. I do not want to pay more than GBP 50 / year absolute max. I would be happy with something free/open source if it was good. Also I do not want anything that will slow my PC down too much.
I am told that you should only have ONE anti-virus software running at a time, plus something for malware. A lot of people seem to favour MalwareBytes AntiMalware plus something... Btw, I am based in the UK.
