    Interesting that most Windows Defender users install a 2nd AV with real time protection

    How have they done that?

    Good question! I don't do that, I run MalWarebytes Pro and CCleaner Pro on my PC's, along with Windows Defender (Win8) and Microsoft Security Essentials (Win7) and I have no need for anything alse.

    Quite a strange report. Other at 20% is quite a lot, don't know what happened to the popular Chinese products 360 and Baidu ( I am using Baidu ).

    Baidu Antivirus | Professional Antivirus + Ultrafast Cloud Security

    Also odd is the inclusion of Dropbox etc as a "backup product" , alongside Acronis and Paragon - how are they the same thing?

    The data seems to come only from those who have something called "security score" installed.

    Nice scores, didn't expected MSE / Defender to have that much usage. But still: it's free, fast and works. Avast having high scores is also one of the expectations.
