I'm a little surprised that people still think they need antivirus. It's literally modern day snake oil. Actually worse than snake oil, because it costs you money and actually decreases your security posture. As the old Roman saying goes, "to injury you add expense".

Windows Defender is infinitely better than any third party solution. Not only are its detection rates as high or higher than everything else, it doesn't hook into your system in the brutal hacky way that most (all?) third party AV does--which just ends up creating more security/stability/privacy problems than its two-bit, ex post facto, hash-based detection could ever be worth. I'd recommend reading up on what Tavis Ormandy (Google Project Zero security researcher) and other pros say about antivirus. Security people tend to be brutal on antivirus vendors, but it's totally justified.

Have sensitive documents on your computer? If you have AV, files the AV deems suspicious (like ones that it hasn't seen before) are automatically uploaded to the cloud for further analysis. Congrats, if you have an AV you've basically installed a rat that is silently exfiltrating files from your system without your knowledge (basically how Kaspersky got NSA hacking tools).

Want to be pwned without even doing anything? Most AV engines are incredibly badly written and full of exploitable problems. When you install and AV that automatically decides it's going to start doing things like scan your email, you're now passing all your emails through a badly written engine. So email that you wouldn't open in a million years, gets opened automatically by the AV exposing it's scanning engine to any malicious payloads in the attachments. (Symantec had a huge issue with specially crafted email attachments being able to pwn a system without the user having to open anything).

Most AV will also obnoxiously install a private key into your trusted key store that lets it look into your encrypted traffic, basically breaking the foundation upon which all internet security is built, and exposing users to man-in-the middle attacks.

For the love of god, never use a third party AV. If you really want an AV, use Windows Defender and run on-demand scans.

Windows 10 is pretty secure. All you need a ad blocker on all your browser and you should be fine.

Defender is proper trash for malware, despite being great for AV.

I got a MBP Lifetime key from ebay for $2 to put on my folks PC. Does 1000x better job than defender keeping all the dumbass shit they accidentally install and browse to off the PC. Made my life a lot easier, and the phones calls for help a lot less frequent.

Except malwarebytes is not antivirus. It’s antimalware. For win10 recommendation is that AV is no longer necessary but anti malware still recommended.

[Computer] 'Virus' is a type of malware.

So, with malwarebytes being classified as anti-malware, it is, in fact, also an anti-virus solution...

I bought a second key (using a 2nd edu email) thinking i could activate it in 4 years, once the first one expires.

Unfortunately they activate the key on the purchase date.

FYI those are not genuine keys. I know you feel better because you are "buying" it but the seller is just using a keygen and ethically it's the same as pirating. May as well pirate it for free if you want to go that route.

Find me a working version with lifetime access that I can de-activate and re-activate on a new PC with a single key from a torrent and I will do that. I've been using mine for 3 years on 2 pc's without a single hiccup.

This is not an AV tool, but it does a job much better than av tools do theirs including defender. Its well worth for people who use windows and have risky browsing activities

Malwarebytes still serves a purpose and is worth every penny. An ad blocker and having Windows 10 alone are not enough to protect someone from career hacks potentially entering their PC. I had to clean a PC that was so badly infested that only Malwarebytes was able to do the job.

So my friend watches a ton of porn, I mean the very racy kind with girls dressed up as avatars and utilising whips, and has to go to some pretty deep dark parts of the internet to find this stuff. Would having this anti-malware help my friend and his sexually driven escapades?

Also my friend uses my computer to watch this stuff, so if you need any info on OS, browser and so forth, he's given me permission to share that info with you.
