Windows Defender Or Avast
« on: October 26, 2020, 08:18:44 AM »
I installed windows 10 and it has own anti-virus ( Windows Defender ) I installed a program and Windows Defender just blocked him by saying it contain a virus. Avast did the same job, its blocked the program and then remove it. So i have a question

Why would i chose Avast when i already have build-in ant-virus ? .

P.S I am facing some problems with Avast too Like its stuck while scanning  my PC

Thank you

Actually i don't usually use other features except scanning downloadable files for virus. Do you still think avast will be a good choice ?

Also Avast v Defender relative performance can be seen on AVCompartives tests:
