Hi, mikey11, iMacg3 & quietman7!
Thank you all for the prompt and insightful replies!
Certainly, most, if not all, Windows 10 users prefer using Windows Defender 10 Anti-Virus as their primary real-time security software, both since it is free and gradually improving, but I do not, as I prefer using paid Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware as my primary real-time security software.
When I purchased WinPatrol PLUS, I made a one-time payment for a lifetime license, and each and every time OneDrive automatically uninstalls and re-installs itself, WinPatrol pops up with a warning and confirmation dialogue box, which is the most frequent occasion to watch WinPatrol in action.
Since I use [Emsisoft Anti-Malware, Acronis True Image 2018 and Windows Firewall], [WinPatrol PLUS, CryptoPrevent Free, SpywareBlaster Free, Malwarebytes 3 Free and Unchecky] are additional security software to strengthen my active and passive protection against various types of malware.
As such, I do not use WinPatrol PLUS and CryptoPrevent Free as my primary security software.
Thank you very much for the help!
