AV-TEST runs new antivirus research on Windows 10

 

German antivirus testing lab AV-TEST has performed a new research on Windows 10 to determine the best security products for Microsoft’s latest version of the operating system known as Creators Update (version 1703).

This time, four different antivirus vendors managed to get the maximum score for their products, each getting 6 out 6 points for protection, performance, and usability during the tests. They are Avira, Kaspersky, Symantec, and Trend Micro, with the security solutions from Bitdefender and McAfee also coming very close with nearly the top score.

Bitefender, for example, which has long been one of the top antivirus vendors worldwide, scored 6 points for protection and performance, but only 5.5 points for usability. McAfee, on the other hand, was rewarded with 6 points for performance and usability, but lost 0.5 points in the protection test.

Microsoft’s performance

One particular test that’s more or less critical for Windows 10 Creators Update users concerns Microsoft, as the operating system comes with Windows Defender enabled by default.

Furthermore, Windows Defender evolved to Windows Defender Security Center in the Creators Update, grouping all security features available in the operating system, including parental controls and system health information.

In this new research conducted by AV-TEST, Microsoft received 15 points, getting 5.5 points for protection, 5 points for performance, and 4.5 points for usability. On the good side, Windows Defender got nearly the maximum score for the protection it offered to Windows 10 systems in the test, and this means that it blocked nearly all samples of malware.

The worst performing antivirus during this new round of test is developed by Comodo, who once again disappointed despite blocking all malware samples. While it received the maximum 6 points for its performance during the research, Comodo’s security products were rewarded with just 2 points for performance, as it slowed down the system substantially, and 4.5 points for usability.

Only 4 security products managed to get the maximum rating

The best is by default built in, everything else is only a commercial fraud. And it's so sad that people do not understand it.

Even, if it does not work at all, it's still the best because it does not prevent Windows from working.

What antivirus do this? Mine never have stop windows from working. If this was true no one would use a antivirus  But when i installed Redstone 2 built in WD stop some of my programs from loading up at boot very fast and as soon as I disabled it and installed the one I been using since 2014 that problem went away.

 

Microsoft didn't invent the wheel, it was not tell Windows 8 tell they got built in protection . So tell me me why I should trust it over the others i trusted trough the years? When up too 2012 they didn't even care if it's users got infected from not having a AV..

Guess what you're infected  and need too reformat or use a clean image but you may stay infected forever and never know because you use nothing..and it could of been prevented because a AV had the signature and other methods to stop unknown malware because no matter how careful you are you're mind cant detect a virus or a malware.

I hate having too use images ,restore or reformat because it causes me too lose my updates ..I even hate upgrading windows and having to remove all the unwanted crap and that's why I mostly use Windows 8.1 and a antivirus and firewall of my choice . I rather be using windows than fixing it.  :)

Mine was a provocation :) 
For me it is enough resident AV and on-demand scanners
No problem to format (reinstall once a month)
From the times of W7 never got infections

But you use Windows 10 right and clean install every upgrade? .Really there is no use installing a bunch of software on Windows 10 unless you pirate LTSB .. I went years using Windows 7 before and just use a AV and no imaging and sandboxing at all and never had too reformat  I have a GTX that came with vista here i upgraded it too windows 7 in 2010 and still it's never had to be clean installed.  Once it runs out of updates i will put something else on it ..

 

It just depends if Microsoft bans my hardware or not on what i put on it. Only time will tell how this Windows 10 story will pan out for users on old hardware . I still have one PC i never use much with Windows 10 . I use it so little i have not even turned it on since RS 2 came out and it has Windows 10 support from Dell.

 

Only this PC i'm on now I have experimented with different OS  ..I  upgraded it from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 soon after my hard drive died  so when I  replaced it I put Linux on it  then i put Redstone 1 on it and booted Linux on other drives . Once Redstone 2 came out i tired it and seen i was getting no were upgrading so much and it was making me  have too reinstall 3 OS not just 1. Windows 10 and my 2 Linux OS .So i stuck Windows 8.1  back in and now it's all good.

 

I gave up installing Windows every 30 days back in 2011 it got old .. and it was never because i got infected it was because i was testing everything i a posted on warezboard and botched my install .I never used sandboxie other than i tested it before and didn't like it.  Only i mostly test programs i been using for years now on windows witch are just updates . Windows dont get many new programs like it use too. I use too use Shadow Defender and Ive not used it other than testing in  a vm since  2011. Since then most of my machines I never had fool with installing Windows much at all.  95% of people using sandboxie is pure paranoia.  I tested keygens and patches for years 99% were harmless.

 

If it were not for warez sites i would not know what sandboxie was even and most normal users still don't know what it is. Most of there paid users are ether researchers ,wannabe security experts or pirates who gave up on trying to crack it that used it back when it was easily keygened  before that untrustworthy group bought it out for profit .
