    hello !
    I know ther's defender, but as I don't trust it much I'm seeking a compatible 3rd party AV: has anyone successfully installed and used one ?

    Why do you want another anti-virus? No virus install by itself, you have to click on something to install a virus. The anti-virus is as good as the guy playing on the computer.

    exactly, and the beauty of the build in AV is that is doesn't slow down your system :D

    Malwarebytes just works... AVG f*cked up 2 times my Windows 10, so I'm not recommending it(If you uninstall it, you will probably get a black screen of death at login screen)

    Agreed, I stopped paying for AV when I first realized that MSE+changing my habits and being careful when online worked perfectly. Since then I have tried many of the top tier AV suites, and I realize one thing, all they do is slow down the system without any extra benefit. I been on MSE and Defender ever since and couldn't be any happier. Unless your job is to purposefully seek out virus's, the built in AV is a whole heck of a lot less intrusive.

    that's not always true now days you can get virus just by going to websites and they are so more advanced that they bypass all install prompts

    Eset Endpoint 5 works for me.

    Symantec Endpoint 12 gave me BSOD every time boot up.
