    Win 10 safety

    I have Win 10 Home ver. I have Defender. Do I also need Malwarebytes? I seem to get different answers. However, I trust Windows Secrets to give me a straight answer.

    Thanks, Twinkie

    I think Malwarebytes Pro is an awesome program to use with Windows Defender.

    I use Malwarebytes Free to periodically run a scan. IMO, it is good to run another a/v product periodically to validate your primary a/v.

    Similarly, I use ESET's online scanner periodically. Have been using it ever since it was endorsed in "Windows Secrets" by Fred Langa:
