    If they had tested for false positives then Defender would have come out the absolute winner, easily. I don't know why these tests don't do that, frankly, because nothing is so irritating as a false positive--I've been using MSE/Defender for many years and cannot recall a single false positive (remarkably enough)--but I read about them constantly popping up for other people using different programs, just like Kaspersky's & Norton's. A false positive, next to an actual virus or malware infection, can be a bad experience because the victim doesn't know what to do when his AV program is telling him one thing and the source of his file is telling him it is safe to ignore it.

    Windows 10 and MSE

    I recently purchased new laptop with Windows 10. On old laptop I used Microsoft Security Essentials. My new Windows says my new laptop has Windows Defender installed. Is this the same as the free security MSE afforded me or do I need additional antivirus
    installed?

    So where is Bit Defender in there? Was it not tested or was it tested and did not make the top 10? I was under the impression that it is one of the best on the market right now...

  6. Some one on another forum said he would not ever trust softpedia at all
    Unless he heard about it from the person themselves.
    Also he posted he does not listen to messenger boys posting second hand stuff that was helping other members.
    So I have now left that forum and found out he has only posted 2 replies then disappeared he was asked to say sorry he refused.

    But thank you for posting I always read what you put and it makes good reading

    I think these tests seem to give different results every time.

    NOD32 is absolute ace in false positives, it drove me nuts.

    Though you have a point, one could also argue that perhaps MSE isn't flagging all it should be. In short, maybe it's missing stuff is should be catching.

    At any rate I used to use MSE, and still think it's good enough to recommend, but for me once I got my laptop, which occasionally used "public" Wi-Fi, I felt I needed something a bit stronger and went with Norton AV. Yeah I know a lot of people don't like Norton, but this isn't your grandpa's Norton of yesteryear.

    Anyway I'm not here to defend Norton, so that argument is out with me, I'm merely pointing out that no AV is 100 fool proof. Yes, that includes Norton, which also gives me false positives.

    Peace *Cool

    That was the results for Windows 7. Windows 10 has a much improved version and it wasn't rated.

    One of the things that Norton does is scan files for usage - this is if a download/file is rarely used or downloaded, Norton will "question" it and that can be alarming for some that aren't computer savvy and have to make a decision whether to keep the file or not. That's said, you can always exempt files from being scanned or flagged.

    I've got a printer program on my PC which NAV constantly false positives one of it's exe's and remove it. I've had to exempt it from being scanned and mark it as safe.
