For many years I have been running Malwarebytes and ESET security on my Windows 10.

I see the latest Malwarebytes says it includes antivirus so I assume one can run it by itself without any additional security products.

I have lifetime Malwarebytes so that would be nice to no longer have to pay for security products.

I have it as well on Windows 10. However, I also have the built in Defender. From what I was told by someone who runs a repair shop, Defender is pretty darn good.... and it uses less computer resources.

Just my observation.

Frankly I don't talk much about what I'm running for Security. They can guess and add a challenge to their hacking.

Defender coupled with malwarebytes is pretty stout. I shun Norton and all the rest of the big name anti-virus as I believe they are viruses themselves.

I run nothing but Windows Defender on all my PCs. That and uBlock Origin and safe surfing and clicking has been working for years.

I just use Defender only. I have used Malware in the past and liked it.

I've heard that as of late, the built-in Windows Defender does a pretty good job for AV duty. If that's true, then I might consider not renewing my ESET subscription. I still do occasional scans with Malwarebytes Anti-malware free.

This is not the first time for Avast, but multi layer defenses are best.

I am on Windows 1903, Defender is now called Windows Security but is the same built-in MS Antivirus/Security program as Defender. I also have a lifetime license for MBAM Premium, both work great together. Other than a good dose of online common sense there is no need for anything else. I have MBAM set to never register in the Windows Action Center and have set exclusions for both MBAM and Windows Security. In Windows 10, third party AVs cause more problems than they will ever solve. Once in a while if I suspect anything might be wrong or just want a third opinion I will use the free ESET virus scan.

I run Avast free and maybe every 5-6 months I run a malwarebytes free scan and the free Microsoft safety scan that uploads each month. Been doing this for probably 20 years usually malware bytes finds nothing, but once about maybe 8-10 years ago I had a nasty browser highjacker called "claro search" and Avast and MS saftey scan could not get rid of it . This was back in Napster days and step son was downloading music. I suspect that the browser highjacker cam from file sharing on Napster. Looked like google but was not. "Malware bytes free" got rid of it. I have never ran the paid versions of antivirus or malwarebytes. The free versions have worked just fine.

I've had zero issues with third party AV's (ESET Endpoint on hundreds of workstations) with Windows 10 shrug It plays fine with the Security Centre.

Eset has been a good stable antivirus for years, since Windows XP days... (2002-up, in my experience)
