which AV would best with MB?

Recommended Posts

Just out of curiousity,

On Win7 which AV would be most compatible or complememnt with MB? Im sure the MB experts have at least a private opinion :P 

given that MB can replace AV... is there a AV that cover what and where MB is not as comprehensive?

I am thinking to terminate my AV once the subcription expires soon.

I am thinking just to have a good firewall. Any recommendations?

all commments and suggestions welcome

and thank you kindly :)

As a general forum principle, we neither endorse nor critique specific AV choices.

That's because this forum is owned and operated by Malwarebytes Corporation, and they work closely with other security software publishers.

It would, therefore, be "tacky" and inappropriate to recommend one product over another.

MSE (aka Defender in Win 8/8.1/10) has its fans and its detractors.

It's probably "as good as" any other free, antivirus.

Regarding the "Free" AVs, you might find this post from an MS MVP and security expert interesting or helpful: http://www.bleepingc...s/#entry3781476


However, there is no one "best" AV to suit all computers, users, and budgets.

If you search the forum here (and any of the reputable computer security forums), you'll find many, many threads about this.
