    Hmmm this or BitDefender? Anyone has any feedback?

      My work machine is crippled by Trend Micro.
      7th Gen Core i5-7200 ULV CPU ran at 100% for a solid hour this morning, due to Trend-Micro pulling 50% of the cycles. Essentially I do no work in that period.. I was literally sitting there watching letters appear one…. by…. one…… it was that slow, and I'm a 2 finger typist, it's not like I'm super speedy on the keyboard!
      It then spiked up again to 100% for a further 45 minutes between 9:30-10:15.

      It's aggressiveness changes day by day, sometimes it is fine, others it's an embarrassment!

    It has been more than 5 years, i never used antivirus. I just use built in windows defender and update the windows regularly. Never had issue. I am IT graduate and work as freelance developer. So, i have tons of software installed in my computer.

      Yes! Windows defender, in my opinion, is the most effective from my experience. Then again free antivirus such as Avast does the job perfectly for added internet security.


        I believe brain is the most effective defender. ;)
        I still use MalwareBytes to scan my PC from time to time.

      If you stick to legit websites and resist the urge to install apps that claim to optimize your PC, careful with 3rd party USB sticks etc. it is super unlikely you will get a virus.

      If you like to tinker suggest you DO grab good anti virus. I DO NOT recommend Avast simply due to the unscrupulous data collection in the past


      These guys do great independent testing of AV:


      Any product classified as "TOP" should be fine.

      Yes, this includes the bundled free Microsoft Defender…….

    In these years, antivirus software=malware


    Is this better than the McAfee free trial from a post few days ago?

      covid-19 is better then McAfee. at least there'll be a cure for the former in the next 12-18mths. McAfee has been 25+yrs and it's just getting worse with each iteration.

      Just use windows defender, free & integrated with windows


    Hmm what if my subscription is expiring, then I just uninstall and reinstall trend micro then set it up as a trial so I get 6 months free… ozbargain style
