Windows security continues to be an issue for all users, and choosing an antivirus solution is a minefield in itself.
Fortunately, the folks at AV-Test have found some winners in their first extensive test of protection software running on Windows 10.
The scores were broken down between threat detection, app performance and usability, with four products managing perfect scores.
The test results recommend the following as top dogs when it comes to keeping your PC safe from viruses, malware and other threats:
- Avira Antivirus Pro.
- BitDefender Internet Security.
- Kaspersky Lab Internet Security.
- Symantec Norton Security.
At the bottom of the test, rating below Microsoft’s own Defender product were Threat Track and Quick Heal. We’d suggest users of those products look for something better.
Given that Norton used to be a pain to uninstall, we wonder if the usability tests went that far. Or, perhaps, the company has improved its performance in recent versions.
You can find the results alongside the Home User section, Windows 10 tab on the AV-Test page, under October 2015 results.
The independent German test company should have the results of its Business Windows Client soon for those upgrading their business IT to Windows 10.
