  • Is Microsoft’s virus suite good enough?

    I currently only use Microsoft’s built in virus protection. The security suite as they call it I think. So far I am happy that it has protected me for so long. But, I do worry that it doesn’t catch everything. Is it enough? Or should I be looking at other virus protection software/programs/services?

    I am using Norton 360 Deluxe for the past one year. Previous to that I was protected by Windows Defender. These days it’s a very tricky affair to have your data and privacy protected. With some online research, I zeroed in on Norton 360 Deluxe which promises an excellent antivirus protection and I am quite satisfied with its performance so far. It comes with a firewall, a fully integrated VPN, dark web monitoring, cloud backup storage, a password manager, and parental controls. I was told that for an additional amount you can get full range of identity protection with LifeLock Select but I haven’t opted for that yet.

    I use the standard stuff from Microsoft as well, their security suite. I don’t see a point in using any other service as it protects me well enough. As long as you don’t go to any bad sites or click suspect sites, you should be fine with the basics.

    Microsoft works for me. Besides, there is no real antivirus software that is 100 percent protective.

    I don’t have any antivirus installed in my Pc. It makes my computer function sluggish and drains up most of my resources. Am careful when am browsing, wouldn’t browse any suspicious websites and won’t install any unknown software’s. Have worked best for me.

    I love Bitdefender. It’s an awesome antivirus software. It keeps your computer very secure, only drawback is it slightly reduces your computer speed. But it you have powerful computer that won’t be an issue. But is very effective against malware, adwares and Trojans. I feel having this along with Windows OS is good for your computer’s security.

    Microsoft has always been good enough for me. I also have google drive in case my important files gets infected.

    I do not think that you can find anything better than this.

    I prefer Microsoft because third party software makes my computer slow.

    Microsoft Virus suite provides basic protection, It’s better to use Norton or McAfee antivirus along with it.

    I find McAfree the best against all antivirus. It is better to install another software protector apart from Microsoft.
