does windows 10 need antimalware software RRS feed

  • Hi!

    Windows 10 comes with full Anti-Malware software which is Windows Defender and you don't need separate product.

    But for whatever reason, if you want to use third-party Anti-Malware products, you could do it and it will disable Windows Defender. Just make sure you are using compatible version of product with Windows 10.

    Best regards,

  • In my opinion, Windows 10 built-in security software Windows Defender is enough, we don’t need to install other antimalware software.

    Of course, if you are familiar with own antimalware software, you can still use it, Defender will disable itself when you install third-party antimalware software.
