Slight rant.

Guys which fucken anti-virus do you recommend for free, which doesn't throw around with ads like crazy?😡

I know this might kinda start a war and some of you want me to use linux.
Sadly, win10 is a must.πŸ˜›

Girlfriend managed to catch some encryption fuck-up..
I made her use sophos home before, but it seems like sophos isn't self-acting enough..

I hope you have some ideas..

    Avast or BitDefender. Both are good, and no ads that I'm aware of.

    Just As @ScribeOfGoD Said Microsoft Security Essentials / Windows Defender Is More Than Enough , Never Used Anything Else.

    I'm using Avast for years now, and never had any problems. You just have to manually turn off pop-ups in the settings so you don't get all the annoying messages

    Think about setting up a sandboxed browser and tell her to only use the standard one for downloads. This way plugin exploits and stuff get a lot harder to pull of.

    Kaspersky, Avast or BitDefender. Good detection rate, maybe also install a firewall like Comodo.

    Malwarebytes..., anyone?

    Avast or Panda Antivirus

    Avast is my current go-to (light if you do the basic install and good detection rates AFAIK). Bitdefender is decent too.

    Avira is okay, but you get a few annoying popups with the free version these days.

    Thank you all very much.(:

    @Gatgeagent, I'm running Kaspersky on my main machine too, I just love it. Best AV ever made. But something free would be better..

    @nikola1402, you think Avast perfoms good on lower middle-end devices?

    @helloworld, hell nah. I didn't made a single good experience w/ that software..:/

    @CozyPlanes, Problem w/ all the fancy extra stuff is that this machine is not very good, specwise. It has 2GB RAM only and runs @ 2x2.something GHz..

    @daintycode
    Search Google for bitdefender keys, you'll find a lot of premium 1/2 year keys, activate it with then and when they expire do the same thing. I've done this for 3 years until I finally switched to Linux and stopped caring about anti-virus

    Windows defender is what I use. But I avoid any weird sites.

    @daintycode probably 'cos Im all Mac and it works great, not tested or used their windows version.

    @daintycode i would say so, all my devices were mid-range at best and i have been using it for almost 10 years. Basic installation package is free and lightweight so you shouldn't have any problems
