Hello,

I was wondering what is the best anti-virus software and someone told me that actually Windows Defender of Windows 10 is the best anti-virus. No need to buy any other anti-virus software.

Is that true?

Hello

Personally, I use Kaspersky rather than Defender.

Does that mean that you don't think Windows Defender is the best choice?

360 Total Security is a good choice too. It works well and is totally free as well.

What do you mean by working well ? Does detect viruses before you install them?

Yes it detects viruses just like all the anti-virus software.

Well, if you are satisfied with it's malware detection ratings then use it.

Certainly I would stay away from any Norton/Symantec products, they create problems and their customer support is poor.
