    I run malwarebytes (paid addition) and i also run spybot which i update/immunize/scan weekly. Spybot always finds some low grade stuff. I run the free version of spybot since i used the paid for 1 year and it was too intrusive and seemed to have problems auto updating such that i was spending the same amount of time as with the free. Ive used both programs for many years but started to wonder if spybot is really that useful anymore or is there a better combination. Im fairly happy with malwarebytes although if there are undetected viruses, i wouldnt know.

    thoughts on current best programs to use with win10?

    We get a lot of threads about this on the regular. I would suggest digging through the existing ones using the search feature then coming back with additional questions: https://hardforum.com/search/56041367/?q=antivirus&o=date&c[node]=19

    Generally speaking, most people are just fine running Windows 10 as is with the built in security. Some choose to run MalwareBytes on top of it as well. I'm not one of those, but YMMV.
