  2. AVG

    AVG has nothing to do with Microsoft and is not offered by Microsoft.

    AVG got acquired by Avast.

    Do I need AVG virus

    Hey, Matt, I see that Avast ranked 6th, AVG ranked 8th in that one specific listing. Some time ago, during my Windows 95/98/98SE days, I used and was really impressed with both Avast and AVG (and Avira). I had to give them up because of some sort of DLL conflict generated by - I never knew what.
    Numerous sources indicate Windows 10 Windows Defender has really stepped up the plate! I guess the answer to OP's question can be: W10 WD is the way to go, just use AVG on-demand scan as 2nd opinion.
