    Windows Defender of course.

    In combination with SmartScreen and Windows Firewall.

    I'm running IOMalware Fighter 4 (using Bitdefender's scan engine) at the moment, but may go back to Tencent PC Manager soon when my trial license expires.

    I have no idea why you asked Antivirus/Antimalware, but only listed Antivirus products.
    Also, it's Emsisoft*, not Emisoft.
    And why would you list ESET products, but not the others? Same for Trend and McAfee. Because if I pick Trend for example, it must be Antivirus, and not another Trend product?

    No Real-Time AV; just several On-Demand Tools.

    Also it's Kaspersky, not Kaspesky.

    And I'm mentionning it because I wanted to know how the poll works. Like if you give me the choice between an Internet Security suite, and a simple Antivirus, it's a bit unfair.

    People get upset pretty easily over small things these days. Sigh.

    My vote goes to Kaspersky.

    I chose Norton but as the poll asks which antivirus/antimalware I would have also selected MBAM if multiple choices were allowed.

    I used to install Quihoo, but I have switched to Avast because of BSOD and other problems, with everything disabled, it it is pretty light.

    My Windows 10 machine is a very old laptop that I use pretty much for experimentation and just messing around with. It normally sits on my kitchen table and I use it to check email when I'm having my coffee in the morning or cooking dinner in the evening. So, I've chosen to go with all free products/software. I am using Avira Free because I find it the lightest free AV option (outside of the built-in AV).

    I could vote either Microsoft or Malwarebytes. But in the end, they're just in case I'm not being careful.

    I have sworn a blood oath to my guru that I will keep Windows 10 clean of other than Microsoft products.

    I have done it but only on Windows 10.:)

    Voted Emsisoft, I'm almost coming to the point where I believe that with a little safe surfing all you really need for protection is EAM, that its BB will catch anything thrown at it.

    You are right. I've thrown a lot of real malware at my VM and EAM\EIS is always first to catch them

    EAM = Emsisoft Antimalware.
    BB = Behaviour Blocker (part of EAM).
    MBAE = Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit.
    Yes, MBAM = Malwarebytes / Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
