    Hey guys,

    i am going to reinstall my Windows. Is there any (maybe free) good Anti Virus? Maybe you have some good ideas.

    little bit OT: is there anything i should to after the clean install?

    Installing Windows 10 Pro

    I use Avast! 2016 for 2 of my W10 Pro installs, seems to do a good job.

    I do all my scanning from another partition though & use Norton Security for that.

    I tried too at post #4, but still ppl post "I use this", "I use that" - it wouldn't be so bad but there are already lots of these AV threads!

    So, and those authentic paid software come with Adware, Trojans and something else installed? And that's secure?!

    Just had some two weeks ago a new Modem/Router to install and the original driver CD of the manufacturer came with a Backdoor Trojan! Just to mention the latest one!!

    There's NOTHING secure, as well, as there isn't any BEST AV or so software!

    About what's on original CD's/DVD's? I check since years any Storage Media I get my hands on! And sometimes, viola, there's something! And funny thing is, most of those Media's are Driver Media's!!
