    Although compatibility mode exists to enable you to install and/or run software that wouldn't otherwise work, I don't recommend its use with anti-malware programs (AVs, Firewalls, etc).

    As I nurse, my thought come to an analogy about malware and viruses in digital things with those in the nature.
    In dealing with it, vaccines are important but I might say not everything. Let's say I have MSE in place, but the rest are depending upon how I do things with my computers. That's what I've been doing for years. It works for me.

    Hoping I'm right.

    Works here too...
    The best free AV is of course the responsibility of the person clicking the mouse.
    Can others exercise that responsibility & resist temptation?

    May be a wise choice too if one wants to minimize / lessen glitches / challenges.
