Hello,

I have windows 10 and I am using bitdefender antivirus software but that blocks most of applications and make my pc hang. Is it good to use netprotector for windows 10?

Thanks

I agree with VirtuBox, you no longer need to install an antivirus as it is built in windows since version 10

Windows Defender is quite ok. All 3rd party antiviruses are full of malware and backdoors nowadays. The most innocent thing they do is spy on you and sell your data. :LOL:

I am using Kaspersky internet security version 14.0.x for Windows 10 and see it is protecting my computer as well. I would recommend you to use this anti virus program for your PC.

Yeah windows defender is lightweight my pc came with mcafee which was much more of a drain, I was going to get kaspersky in favour of mcafee for online protection mostly as i don't see that in windows 10's built in ant virus. ( i could be missing it ) Now due to the comment above about Putin I am having second thoughts ...any alternatives?

Since Windows 7 Microsoft has provided free antivirus and malware protection that is as good as any third party application.

Windows 7: Windows Security Essentials
Windows 8: Windows Defender
Windows 10: Windows Defender (also offers extra security through Device Guard and other free tools)

They are all capable and I have been setting up PCs for family and friends for years using only these free integrated Microsoft products with very good results.
Just remember that in the end, security is still up to you, be careful about where you surf and what you install on your computer, you are always the first line of defense when your PC is on the internet.

Thanks for all your suggestion....

My PC configuration is little bit low so it may be getting hanged...

Now I am using netprotector and its working fine without hang.. so is netprotector good for security?

We definitely recommend you read the entire article so you fully understand why we recommend a combination of Windows Defender and Malwarebytes, but since we know that tons of people will just scroll down and skim, here is our TL;DR recommendation for how to keep your system secure:
  • Use the Built-in Windows Defender for traditional antivirus – the criminals have moved on from regular viruses to focus on Ransomware, zero-day attacks, and even worse malware that traditional antivirus just can’t handle. Windows Defender is built right in, blazing fast, doesn’t annoy you, and does its job cleaning old-school viruses.
  • Use Malwarebytes for Anti-Malware and Anti-Exploit – all of the huge malware outbreaks these days are using zero-day flaws in your browser to install ransomware to take over your PC, and only Malwarebytes provides really excellent protection against this with their unique anti-exploit system. There’s no bloatware and it won’t slow you down.

I pretty much agree with Adrian above, if nothing else you really want Malwarebytes on your system if nothing else, to get any other AV would just for some extra features like VPN or whatever they offer like Norton's lifelock.
