I’ve been using Avast free since forever, and I’m wondering if there might be something better out there. Or perhaps Windows Defender is good enough? From what I could see, Defender doesn’t detect quite as much, and apparently has a higher performance impact. It would be nice to be rid of Avast’s pop-ups. Bitdefender looks like a good candidate, but I wanted to find out what opinions of it were here before I switched. I also have Malwarebytes free installed, though I’m not sure if it’s even necessary anymore. I was under the impression that AV products are now detecting other types of malware, making a second anti-malware product redundant.
