Anti Malware Software?
« on: January 12, 2021, 10:00:15 pm »
When I was on Windows 7 I used a malware software called Bitdefender in addition to my Norton anti-virus suite. I plan on dumping Norton now that I am on Windows 10, and using the built-in anti-virus program, but I’ve read that one still needs an anti-malware package in addition.

Now about a month ago, when I was still using 7, Bitdefender updated itself and suddenly started blocking the cloud back-up service I have been using for years and which saved my ass about five years ago when I lost my hard drive. I tried using the “exceptions” feature on Bitdefender but I couldn’t get it to work. When I say “blocked” I mean BD just deleted the whole software package and I had to re download and install the software after disabling BD. So Bitdefender’s out.

Any recommendations for another anti-malware package? It doesn’t have to be free.
