Windows 8 - need a 3rd party antivirus software?
Posted on 2013-12-04
Hi - I'm new to Windows 8.
When i was on windows 7, i always and only used ms security essentials for av protection.
Windows 8 says it's already installed, under the hood. So am i now safe as i was on windows 7 against viruses?
Or do i need to install something else too like AVG?
The googling I've done so far leave me with a common theme.... "...you're prob safe, but install it anyway...better safe than sorry". So people think it's safe, but aren't willing to go out on a limb and say YES, 100% as safe on win8, than win7 with ms security essentials, etc.
So is there any definitive conclusion yet on this?
