I am on Windows 10 and I am bit confused related to these ongoing threats of malware and other malicious infection that has made this year miserable already. I am using Eset protection and I am on a yearly plan. 


Please give me insights of your experience and preferences. Thanks

There is no "best" but there are a number of good ones. Eset is fine. I'm a fan of Kaspersky and use it on all my systems along with MalwareBytes Professional (as well as SpywareBlaster and WinPatrol). There are a number of decent free Anti Virus apps, but I'm old school and believe you get what you pay for. When it comes to system security I won't "cheap out". In the end, "smart computing" is at least as important as the protection software you use (don't visit "iffy" sites, don't download anything unless you are 100% certain you know what it is, ditto opening email links, create frequent disc images or backups, etc).

The best defensive strategy to protect yourself from malware and ransomware (crypto malware) infections is a comprehensive approach to include prevention and your best defense is back up, back up, and more back up on a regular basis. Preferably keeping a separate, offline backup to a device that is not always connected to the network.For more suggestions to protect yourself from malware infections, see my comments (Post #2) in this this topic...it includes a list of prevention tools.
