    Laptop Protection


    0 Not allowed!
    This has probably been on here previously but the search on NSC doesnt seem to work very well.

    Had a problem so DR EX had to format the hard drive on my laptop and re install windows. What free protection should I install I tried to install Microsoft Essential but a message came up it is not needed in Windows 10. Is there built in protection with windows 10 that is sufficient .

      Mrs BG locking it in a cupboard would probably be best ?

      She wont do that as she would have to listen to me bleating on rather than me be posting on here. So what program should I install.

      Windows Defender is Essentials for Win 10..

      It is already built in...

      Is that sufficient to protect it from viruses or do I need install anything else?

      Nothing is 100%, its not bad though.. I think there have been many threads on her as to which Anti Virus to use. It is always a matter of personal preference. If you are unsure, just run malwarebytes once in a while.. This tends to find anything other AVs miss.. You can download from here:

      You dont need to buy, just click download

      Nothing (even paid for anti virus) is 100% foolproof.

      Just make sure you back up all your personal files in the cloud or another external hard drive in case you catch a virus or your hard drive fails, generally Windows Defender is sufficient as long as you 'safe surf'. What did Dr Ex recommend you do, assuming you asked them?
