Hi there, big Q-man! ;)
Which choices are currently considered the best - both free and paid?
I'm running MB3 (paid) on my computer, with free Spywareblaster (SWB) and free WP to supplement. I'm running various Windows laptops and desktops on W7 & W10.
I also need to look at options for my friend's computer, whose McAfee LiveSafe expired and has security programs on it that I've not heard of (ByteFence Anti-Malware [also expired] and PCKeeper Antivirus). She's got a 2015 HP Envy all-in-one. She's using W10.
Also, what are the currently recommended supplementary programs? MBAM? SAS? SWB? WinPatrol? Spybot? Which WP products are recommended?
I refuse to use AVG as I've noticed that they still do some funny things (like adding software without permission).
I'm also curious as to why I don't see Emsisoft being recommended here anymore...?
