    I meant the built-in one in W8.1, whatever it is they call it.
    Oh windows defender that all you it unnecessary to pay for anti-virus unless you download alot of untrustworthy stuff onto your pc.

    Either then some anti virus software doesn't worj that good.

    LOL! The IT dept here is not as efficient as you probably. When you're dealing with over 1000 people on a daily basis having little issues like this you're put to the bottom of the list. It would be over the phone help anyway. But I sorted it. :)

    As for my computer, it probably needs a re-install of W7 as I think the install they used was corrupt. I'll have to wait for some down time to see about getting it fixed.

    I refuse to pay for any antivirus. It's too much bloat for my liking. Until they can sort that I won't bother.

    Exactly and it takes up so much resources your computer ends lagging or being extremely slow.

    Mcafee the worst affender for this.

    Then everyone suggest AVG because it free however it no where as good as windows defender that was created by Microsoft for their OS.

    AVG is too much bloat these days too. It's better than some paid ones but it's not as good as it used to be. I don't recommend it anymore.

    When someone ask me what should I use I say use Microsoft defender it free and it done by Microsoft who know what there doing and it doesn't get on the way or take up so much resources.

    My company is world wide (well over 10,000 users) and they use IBM security and IT services. We have onsite IT but they only come out if and only if things can't be sorted by telephone. They use remote desktop a lot.

    I say the same thing. I tell them that unless they are doing illegal downloading or heading to sites they shouldn't there's no need for a paid virus scan. But in most cases MS should work anyway.

    Every computer I take a look at Microsoft Defender is switch off and that due to the bloatware with anti virus that comes pre installed that turns it off do to conflict.

    So I always have to turn it on or delete the anti virus that was put on as a free trial then turn on windows defender.

    Yep same thing. I don't do as much IT stuff as I used to. Most of it was with family. Since I don't live anywhere near them I have no need to worry. :P

    I did a lot of fixing up at my mums when I was there over the xmas period. My other family members tried to 'help' and made a mess of things as usual.
