So... The Big Day is on, and people are switching to Windows 10.

Don't forget to keep yourself protected, though. For those that use third-party AV software, here is a list of AVs currently known to be compatible with Windows 10:
  • Avast Free Antivirus 10.3.2223
  • AVG Internet Security 2015.0.6110
  • Avira Antivirus Pro
  • Bitdefender Internet Security
  • BullGuard Internet Security 15.1.307
  • Emsisoft Anti-Malware
  • ESET Smart Security 8.0.319.0
  • Fortinet FortiClient
  • F-Secure Internet Security 15.3
  • Kaspersky Internet Security
  • Panda Free Antivirus
  • Quick Heal Total Security 16.00 (

  • Tencent PC Manager 10.11.25856.501
  • ThreatTrack VIPRE Internet Security
  • Trend Micro Internet Security 10.0.1150

For antimalware solutions, Malwarebytes also officially support Windows 10, and Emsisoft Anti-Malware is already listed above.

Have a nice day with Windows 10 :)

I just want to say that this list isn't perfectly up to date. Some products are missing so it would be a good idea to search on the Antivirus website first to make sure if it's compatible or not :)

It was posted on Wilderssecurity that the list only has AV's that are included in AV-compartatives tests. That is why you do not see Norton or Webroot.

No matter what security software is installed... the user is still the weakest link.
