In another thread, What’s your “favourite” bloatware, several common anti-virus/anti-malware names were among what some people consider bloatware or even malware in their own rights.
I’ve used several programs over the years, including Norton, AVG, Kaspersky, Avast, Zonealarm and others I can’t remember now. Ultimately, I moved on from each of them out of dissatisfaction with my user experience. They all seemed intrusive to me in one way or another or I had to frequently tinker with settings. Recently I’ve settled for Windows Defender because it seems to demand my attention less frequently.
Now, I’ll admit I’m no anti-virus software expert. That’s why I’m turning to the Eve community. So, my question is, when your V arrives, what anti-virus/anti-malware software will you install and what makes that software the best choice for you?
