  2. Which antivirus should I use?

    It depends on the person and selecting Anti-Virus is very subjective, some people love Norton, some others not . If you are using Windows 7, you could install Microsoft Security Essentials and use it, if you have Windows 10, Windows Defender is build in
    which protect you against all malware (it is successor of Microsoft Security Essentials). Norton also released a Anti-Virus software which is compatible for Windows 10.

    It is totally up to you, you may continue use Norton or switch to Windows Defender in Windows 10. You could use the one which you are more comfortable with.

    Which antivirus should I use?

    I am so confused my ISP Comcast gives their customers Norton security suite for free. I keep reading that windows defender is just fine for protecting my system. I am now really confused because I have also been told by a service rep at Microsoft that Microsoft
    essentials is what I need. So can someone please just tell me what is the BEST option for Windows 10. My previous OS was Windows 7 service pack 3 and I used Norton security suite but to be honest it seemed that literally every 5 minutes Norton was protecting
    my computer from "unauthorized file open" All I want to know is what is the best product I don't care if it's free I just want the best defense against ALL threats. I also would love some advise on how to check if both windows defender and Microsoft essentials
    are both on my computer. Thank you in advance to all who give this middle aged not the best computer savy lady some well needed advise. Thanks again

    Who is Norton? Stupid question, I suppose.

    My Norton360 and its sibling, Norton Internet Security, do not and have never dictated what browser I should use.

    You use what you like to use. If you are new to the scene, then you have to learn through experience which browser you like to use.

    yes it was Norton 360 who said it works better with IE. It was a pop up. I like IE but thought if
    I didn't use it then I wouldn't be using windows 10. I understand better now and
    thank you for taking the time to help me. carol I am 75 lol

    Try Mozilla Firefox, you might like it.

  8. which browser should i be using

    It'd NOT a stupid question, and my answer is, use what works best for you.

    Personally, I found Edge to be a disaster and switched to using IE11 -- which always worked well for me. When Edge matures a lot more, I might switch back to using it.

    I also use Waterfox, the 64-bit version of Firefox, as my default browser. But then Cyberfox is a good alternative.

    Use what you like -- that's the value of choice.

    I'm also sticking with IE 11 because I feel that Edge, while promising, is not yet ready for prime time.

    im sticking with ie too for now,,carol go to control panel and defaults and make sure IE is set to default ,this should stop Edge from butting in if it is doing so ,,and i also would just ignore Norton 360 complaint

    All the modern browsers are very secure. In fact, if you just go by their default, out of the box, settings with no addons installed, IE is very likely the most secure of all. Firefox needs a few addons to reach the same level and is probably the least secure out of the box. Chrome is locked down pretty tight by default but has some privacy issues that bother some people.

    In short, the best browser to use is the one that you like the best.
