  • Antivirus Software

    OK, what is the latest recommendation for best antivirus software that can be used on the Edius machine? I tried to keep the machine separate with just Edius, but I do need to install some other things, so I want the virus protection. Had major problem over the years with Norton, and was told Bitdefender blocks too many things, and in particular is not good for Edius. I don't care if free or for money... opinions?

          a quite informative report can be found here:
          AV comparatives

          I've been using Microsoft since ever for the whole family' computers and (touch wood) never had a single virus.

              Be aware that the next release of Windows 10 (19H1 aka Redstone 6) has changes that will break all AV software that doesn't get updated.

              If you want to (or are forced to) upgrade to the new Windows 10 release, make sure your AV vendor is ready, or whatever software you are currently using will stop working.

                      I do not use antivirus on my editing PC's either. They only do editing all other stuff like mail etc is done on other PC's which have either AVAST or Malwarebytes.

                        Unless your computer is not connected to any others (the Internet or a LAN), and never accesses storage devices that have been connected to other computers, that's very bad practice. Even air-gapped systems can and have been compromised.

                        Full disclosure: I work on antivirus software.

                          Not really. I have access to the internet. I have the Malwarebytes and I check the system once per week (also online antivirus). Still without a issue

                            You are of course free to do as you wish. What I am telling you is that I don't know of any cybersecurity engineers who think your approach is sound.

                              Of course, every doctor (I hope not everyone, after all) will tell you that antibiotics are good for everything. Cheers :)
