How long have you been running Windows 10 and have you had any security issues with it.

 

Windows Defender and Firewall are free and have always worked for me from day one + you don`t get any spammy adverts.

Ok I have chosen this, using the widows firewall and the hardware firewall (in build into the router, and i did forget about that one at first)  But because I have seen other people test the antivirus with windows and things got let through, I am going to be using kaspersky free as the antivirus.

 

I do admit that i like how I can set rules in the windows firewall to block all telemetry services.
