Anyone experiencing malware problems with this browser that Windows Defender can not detect?

Any browser can be subject to malware depending on what sites you visit and what you click on.

I think you really need to enclose rather more detail about the problems you are experiencing if you want help in  resolving any issues you are having.


Im a rookie and purely recreational pc user. Im utterly obsessed with security (even though I consider myself a safe and law-abiding internet user!) and run a combo of the following freeware security suites.....

Windows Defender/firewall

Regular scans with Malwarebytes, AdwCleaner, JRT, HitmanPro

Since this is the philosophical discussion area, I think that the OP was just making a casual (or causal) statement.

 I normally avoid Edge because it doesn't allow for ad blocking extensions like Adblock Plus.  However on the rare times when I've used it, I haven't noticed any malware with it.  If you suspect malware though, you should download MalwareBytes and run it.  I normally use Firefox, Chrome, and to a lesser degree IE, and I haven't noticed any malware with them either.

 

 Good luck.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.
