SS, 

 

Perhaps this link may help you, and research as well.

 

https://top8antivirus.com/antivirus-comparison/?edgetrackerid=100298100431150&ver=one&gclid=EAIaIQob...

 

Think while doing your research you might like to check how you were last affected, and on what devices.

 

Smartphones, tablets, computers. All of your initial question A/v programs are good to a point but, some consume more resources on the computer.

 

And running more than one at a time is a definite Nono. It’s no longer just a question of viruses, but, malware and have you updated every background running process on your computer, tablet, phone, etc.

Sorry I only use paid for Norton Internet Security x 24 licenses.

 

Same version that I Install on new builds.

 

Pricey yes but, security features I enjoy👍. Peace of mind I don’t mind paying for.

I'm changing my anti-virus, & will be installing other programs. Can one use Malware bytes, Microsoft Essentials with Avast ? What else is compatible, even necessary ? Anyone care to let me know their faves ?

Happy Valentines Day !  Heart
