I have a laptop with Windows 10.

I was going to install AVG’s free anti virus program but after reading all the messages on this thread, I’m going to stick with Windows defender.

windows defender is what I use. It’s about as good as anything else that you will find.

If you are on Windows 10, just use the built-in Windows Defender.  It is as good as any other, it is accessible, and free.

Does anyone have any views on which antivirus software does well in terms of accessibility? Ideally I'd be looking for a free solution, but I don't mind paying if something is really good.


In terms of which solutions are good at actually keeping out viruses, Kaspersky seems to have good reviews -- but I'm not sure how accessible it is.
