Hi guys,


Would like to ask what anti-virus software you guys are using? Are you using the Embedded Microsoft defender?

what's an anti-virus software hehehe

since Windows has it's own defending software I've never bothered to load anti-virus software in my 3 units, so far it has been years with no incident.

Unless you are doing sketchy stuff with your computer, the built-in AV would be sufficient. haven't installed any for more than a decade now, and no problems so far.

I've been using the default in Windows and Bitdefender for added security. I also used Spybot Search & Destroy for years before switching to Bitdefender. Both combinations can filter even results from Google images and common websites (sometimes their webpages or files have malware).
