Can someone recommend me either the best free or best low cost licence AV solution please?
I honestly don't think its needed anymore if you're not stupid, I just run defender and have never had a single problem, out of curiosity I'll run a scan every 6 months and nothing.
I forgot to mention that this isn't for me, but for a family friend who is just your typical everyday user. Just need something that'll run automatically in the background ideally.
Depends what you need, some third party AVs have lighter resources then Defender ie less ram, cpu usage , better virus detection etc, personally I use Bitdefender Free version which IMHO is better then Defender.
I got a 3 year nod32 key for I think about a fiver on eBay not so long ago.
Stick to windows 10 AV. It's free and it does the job exactly as it should.
Read the post above yours. Though not sure why I'm replying, I can sense the spam in this one.
Does anyone know a free decent antivirus for windows 10?
looking for recommendations for best antivirus to use when gaming, If you could give me some advice it would be much appreciated
Get asked a a lot (did you try SEARCH) if you are on Win 10 its own built in Software that is good enough/better than many.
I use the free Avira, gets highly rated.
Most just use Windows own Defender, as thats also good now.
I was wondering the same and think I'll stick with defender as I only use the PC for gaming, wont be using the browser at all really
I use Bitdefender Free version which is lighter on resources then Defender ,no advertising and has great detection rate ( one of the best).
Gamer here too
Hmmm bitdefender free sounds like its worth a try. Thanks for the recommendation

If you are not paying for it then you are not the customer, you are the product being sold.
I was under the impression that BitDefender is only free for the first 30 days
No, they do a free version which has no time limit.
I can't say I am impressed by BitDefender; I tried the 30-day evaluation and so far as I can see, there is little opportunity to determine what should happen when a "suspect" file is detected and I can see no report on the actions taken by the software. I am sure that it is all there, just not obvious.
I think that like the Russian Kaspersky, I will forget the Romanian BitDefender.
