I also use spywareblaster, I have used bit defender total security paid version for 5+ years and never had an issue with it. I just had to re-install windows and something was causing my windows update to break.. it would not update no matter what I did. People kept telling me it was because Bit Defender. I deleted it and was after alot of fuss I was able to use the microsoft update assistant to update windows.
AS of right now i’m using windows defender, I have 3 months left with bit defender and i’m just curious.. Am I safe enough with windows defender? I also have a VPN that i use from time to time. I felt safer using bit defender, it took up more system resources for sure.. just curious if there are any of you that went from a 3rd party AV to windows defender and had any problems or if I should just install Bit Defender total security again? I just don’t trust 100% that windows defender can keep me as safe as Bit Defender, but hey.. maybe i’m wrong and stuck with the mindset I have had since the birth of the internet, back when you HAD to have an Anti virus and anything Microsoft had was not good enough
