well one of my late aunts bought the full version of kaspersky internet security suite (not the free version) a few years ago and it protected her win7 machine pretty well, maybe even better than the ms security essentials app for win7

note that the win7 version of defender is not the same as the win10 version as W7's defender was only anti-spyware (weak) but the W10 version of defender is nearly a full antivirus app
Windows Defender is just monopoly-ware something people just use because it baked into Windows and people will praise  it regardless of  how good it is because it's freeware. They nasty malware out there now that attacks Windows Defender and shuts it down . I's kind of like Windows is since it's most used desktop OS it has the most desktop malware . Well since Windows Defender is the most used Antivirus it's the most targeted and it has the most exploits being written to shut it it down. If you think it's better it is because you just not been infected with the right strain of malware yet.  Some people don't use nothing but conman sense and never get infected for years tell one day they do. 3

I use Symantec endpoint protection.  Never failed me yet. Using wget to download the client version which is free.  Guess it's up to the end user.

read this (all comments + video) because it makes a lot of sense!

SD can't prevent your OS and files becoming infected but it can make sure that your files and OS are safe after a reboot
Indeed, SD is excellent insofar as returning your system its prior (hopefully clean) state upon rebooting, but SD alone offers no protection against ID-theft (and the like), so imho it is vital to complement SD with realtime anti-malware that can protect against that sort of attack/infection!

Sorry for the duplicate post (not sure how that happened) and I don't see anyway that I could delete one of them!

I use ZAM as a second opinion scanner and it has been very helpful in that use!  A few times it found adware and malware that somehow avoided WD (and it scans much faster than WD)!

Hey Cerb, this really interests me!  Would you please let me know where to grab the SEP client and 'wget' (whatever that is)?
