    Antivirus selection


    I deleted msmpeng.exe in regedit as I was told it was malware. I haven't been able to use the windows defender offline scan feature since, I'm met with it loading, a screen flashing for a second then the system resetting.

    Is there any way to restore this?

    And will avast free antivirus and malwarebytes free be goods enough.

    :)
     

  2. Good Antivirus + Firewall

    I would never put anything Norton on my computer.

    Nod32 is arguably the best antivirus. AVG is likely not as good, but it's free and at least pretty good.

    Firewalls, I'd put Comodo and whatever "Tiny Personal Firewall" is named nowadays on your short list. I think Kerio might have sold it now and it's named something else. Otherwise, just put Comodo on your short list. I think the current version's ease of use has taken a step backwards, seems a bit counter-intuitive when trying to do certain things with it, but overall it does a good job and the price is right.

    3. Right click on the device and then select "Uninstall".
