Good afternoon everyone,

 

Please could you kindly give me some advice?  I would reallyappreciate your help and advice, thank you so much in advance. :)

 

I have just upgraded from Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 10 Home.

 

I would like to know what security products are compatible with Windows 10?

At the moment I have Windows Definder, Malwarebytes FREE Antimalware, CCleaner, Free Malwarebytes AntiExploit, aFREE Spywareblaster and WOT (WEB OF TRUST).

 

Should I put anything else on such as BITDEFENDER FREE or COMODO INTERNET SECURITY PREMIUM which is FREE?

 

I look forward to hearing from you soon, thanks again.

 

TheHappyOne :)

Hello,

I have never been a fan of free anti-virus because it could be malware happy itself :)

I would recommend Norton security it’s the best possible security you can get for your PC I have had it for years and have never got a virus

I prefer Windows Defender and have never had an infection on my system.  I've used it's different versions since the XP days.

That being said, infections are more a reflection of your surfing habits than the antivirus.  I once asked my kids (who had horrendous infections) what they did with popups.  They told me that they clicked on them to get rid of them (Doh!)

Beyond that, search for the latest antivirus reports and see what's got the best record.

These are the 2 that I use the most:
