  1. SEVERE PROBLEM: Windows 10 Home Edition Doesn't Have Anti-Virus?????


    Hi all, I've done a lot of searching and I can't find a clear answer for if Windows 10 Home Edition comes with Microsoft Defender Antivirus. I'm running Windows 10 Pro on my 2 PC's and I don't have experience with Windows 10 Home Edition... Microsoft distinctly says that Microsoft Defender Antivirus comes with Windows 10 Pro, but it doesn't mention it for Windows 10 Home Edition: Link: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/stor...ashopwindows10 Thank you.

    :)

    Windows 10 comes with in-built Anti-Virus program Windows Defender.

    It depends on your own preferences if you would want to use another Anti-Virus program.

    Suggest reading all of:

    Anti Virus Problems

    You should not be using more than one anti-vrus program on your computer. Read the
    IMPORTANT NOTE about not using more than one anti-virus program in this

    topic
    .

    The inability to turn on Windows Defender 8/10 is typically the result of having a third-party anti-virus installed or failure to remove it properly (completely). Since Windows 8/10 Defender includes anti-virus protection, it is
    disabled during the installation of another anti-virus program. If a trial anti-virus (i.e. McAfee, Norton, etc) came
    preinstalled on your computer or you installed one, Windows Defender will be turned off (disabled). Windows Defender recognizes the install and automatically disables itself when other anti-virus products are used
    to avoid conflicts. Windows Defender will remain disabled until that anti-virus software has been completely uninstalled. In some cases, you may need to download and run the anti-virus vendor's clean up tool to remove any remaining
    remnants.


    After removal of the third party anti-virus, Windows 8/10 Defender needs to be
    activated
    if you choose to use it. When uninstalling the third-party anti-virus Defender should automatically turn itself on but sometimes you may receive a message indicating
    your system has no protection...click here to turn on Windows Defender. If not, and Defender remains disabled, you will need to manually turn it on.
