    NOD32 with HIPS disabled due to new version of Win10. Is it still better than Defender?

    If you are careful, you can live without anti virus

    This is true. No reason to pay for antivirus, but you can live without it if you are savvy enough. I have defender turned off, and nothing installed, and I never get a virus.

    Thanks for the replies. I don't have to pay for antivirus. I've got a NOD32 genuine 2-year license. I'm just not sure if it's effective enough even with HIPS not working. If it isnt , I could just use Defender. Whatever the case, I wanna stay in Windows 10 for a while now that this build seems to be stable enough.
