    Loving MSE so light on my computers, reminds me of AVG 7.5 days! all the others now are so bogged down and slow my computers.

    Great to hear it works on your system :thumb:
    I had the opposite experience on some systems.

    Damn right it's great. I used to agonise over which third-party realtime AV to use (freeware and shareware) until I finally came to the realisation that Windows Defender is all I need, along with regular backups and a good dose of common sense. This is especially true with the improved under the hood changes on Windows 10.

    I do still run scans every now and again with Emsisoft Emergency Kit for peace of mind, but they always come up clean.

    It is a huge improvement in the Creators Update for Windows 10. At least as far as its lightness. As for its effectiveness, I will still have to see evidence over a longer term than a couple of weeks. I will be keeping an eye on tests, but it looks like they are going in the right direction.

    Agreed on all points. That said, I went to a third party av again. :eek:
