Best Antivirus/Antimalware software for Windows 10

by Lucian92 / March 6, 2017 7:56 PM PST

Hey everyone, I'm looking to find out the absolute best antivirus/antimalware software for Windows 10. Preferably one that I can just make a one-time payment. Looking for some suggestions from experts, as I'm just an amateur.
Can someone point me in the right direction?

Hi Mate,

I recommend you to try Microsoft Windows Essential which comes inbuilt with Windows 10.

Eset is a pretty good antivirus. Only problem: It is quite expensive. Wink

Yes -- Avast and AVG both offer real time protection with streaming updates and Behavior Shield (even in the free versions, with the options to add more features if you like.) Let me know if you have any questions!
