    Does Microsoft Defender antivirus do the same protection? Or do I now need to buy a new antivirus program? How do i find out if I have Defender already on my Desktop? I already have Malewarebites pro.

  2. Norton Anti Virus

    I am thinking about getting a new anti virus program. I am presently using ESET Nod32 anti virus and Malwarebytes anti malware. I don't believe these are doing much for me and I am wondering if someone could give me some advise on changing. I have Windows
    10 and am looking at Norton as a replacement. I have had Norton in the past and got rid of it because it slowed my computer down. I am looking at Norton Security Standard, which I understand is a new and improved program. This is new for 2016. Could anyone
    tell me if they have this program and would they recommend it. Thanks in advance.

    MacAfee, Norton anti virus

    I was able to uninstall the Norton program but cant seem to uninstall McAfee. When I select and try to uninstall it says wait til the program finishes (or something similar) but this has been a long while and nothing seems to happen. (I rebooted and same
    thing happens.) I tried to follow instructions on how to remove McAfee products from a PC (I don't know if m PC is running Linux. It's an HP Pavillion with intel so I proceeded to Step 1.)

    I selected Windows 10 but no success. Should I do Step 2, download MCPR. I assume I can search MCPR to get the download?

    Another thing, after I uninstalled Norton, I was able to select Windows Defender from the programs list, but now that I am trying to remove McAfee, I can no longer see Windows Defender on the list.

    Windows 10 & Norton Virus

    Windows 10 has its own protection and does not require anything else. Avoid using third party anti-virus solutions and cancel the Comcast Norton subscription..
