    Windows AV, at least until the 1607 settles down some more. It's adequate for most purposes anyway, just needs a little security boost here and there. :)

    You go first. :blink:

    I don't use AV anymore currently. In fact I don't use free AV. Majority are pretty packaged with PUP if you're not careful and overlook those ticks.

    But I do install BD Free Beta on my family's laptop. What I like is the "over-simplicity". No buttons to click; just a slider to enable/disable protection and thats it.

    I'm satisfied with Windows Defender + HitmanPro.Alert on one machine and have no plans to change that any time soon.
