    Anti virus software and Windows S mode


    I recently purchased a laptop for my daughter. The salesperson insisted that we needed anti-virus software. No big deal, I purchased it. As it turns out, I can't install it in S mode. What's the deal with S mode? Is it really necessary? I'm trying to figure out if it's best to use standard Windows 10 or try to return the software.

    :)

    Help With Choosing Anti-Virus Software

    Hey guys

    I would like to know what some of the best anti virus programs are.

    I am currently running NOD32 and the Nvidia firewall (came with mobo) and I find they slow down my games (singleplayer)

    The guys over in the gaming threads suggested to just disable them while playing but I'm not sure I want to just in case you know.

    So yeah bassically if you could give me some suggestions for anti virus and I will probably go back to using the windows firewall instead.

    Any suggestions for a anti virus software ?


    There are so many anti viruses in the market. The last one I used was Nod32. It was on windows 8 pro.
    Now on windows 10 I didn't decide yet what to use if at all. Should I have any anti virus software on the pc ? Is the defender built in windows is good enough ? When I google for top anti virus software the first link is 2016/2017 best anti virus softwares by pcmag. The first one in the list is mcafee plus 2016.

    There are so many products and I know that some of them make problems with other applications some not working good yet with windows 10 some better more or less. After all they are costing money so it's a bit mess.
