    Right now, I'm using AVG Free Edition 2015.

    Any others you recommend for a smaller memory footprint?

    I'm using ESET Smart Security, I like it that it still has a proper email scanner as that is where most of my 'nasty' stuff arrives.

    Old post but you do know that Defender is the worst junk ever created, spreading viruses etc like nothing else

    Funny, because I've never had a single issue. About once a year I use a 3rd party application as a secondary scan, and you know what it finds? Absolutely nothing.

    Fun or not fun, I have worked for nearly 22 years now with IT Security and I only talked by own experience.

    One more fact Defender didn't even try to stop the latest versions of Wanacrypt and it's clones. Microsoft should stay away from AV products and let dedicated companies do that work.

    But as I said that's only my experience during 20 years in IT business. If you trust Defender and feel secure than you should continue use Defender.
