    Must be one somewhere. My upgrade deleted Panda Antivirus - switched to Avast - not crazy about Windows Defender.

    Avast is a really good choice for Windows 10. I have yet to get an actual virus per say and the program is now updated to work with Windows 10 and it is free!

    Is ESET nod32 now working or is it still broken in Windows 10?

    The only program i use with windows 10 that would not work is Perfectdisk but since Windows 10 release there has been and updated version which now works. I use Perfectdisk because the program specializes in optimizing my SSD drives in my HP.

    Just a heads up: Do not try Kaspersky 2015 (with patch c) or 2016 (16.0.0.614) version on Windows 10. they claim full compatibility BUT they break the ability to do any kinds of changes to the start menu in Windows 10 at all. You can't pin/unpin tiles, make start full screen, remove most used/recent etc. at all. You do any changes they don't show up until a reboot or logout/in or explorer.exe restart.

    Yes pretty much all w7 programs work. There are only a few that don`t and for those few that don`t there have already been updates for the up coming windows 10 and now those ones work to.

    Do you get viruses that often that you think it's a good thing to go a week without one?

    Bitdefender breaks wifi, getting limited connectivity all the time.

    ESET Nod32 v8 works perfectly on W10, no need to upgrade to v9 (beta).

    As for incomparable, I have some old soft, and works fine with 10, haven't found anything yet.

    Just wanted to post about a third party anti. We'll see how people will say they are useless, and knowledge is the key to not needing one.

    Just as you don't need a spyware remover if you know what you're doing.

    But look around this site and you'll see it has more posts to the pirate sections than any other section we can assume that people like to get free.

    As for DLing software, you need one of the best, Bit defender, Avast, Avira, Fsecure, Eset/Nod. Even these will flag out safe software like keygens, but there are loads on the net so infected you need something other then never DLing anything.

    After windows bought Giant and turned it into defender it went downhill.


    @ AZ, I Like 7zip, as winrar had a flaw that took forever to be patched.

    Best antivirus: brain
    2nd place - the antivirus from my homeland, named after late 70's tv series :)

    I'm using ESET Smart Security 5 on Windows 10 and it works fine for over a month.
