Windows 7 has been the most popular Operating System world wide among computers. It was also the most targeted one. Now we see most devices upgrading to Windows 10, while some business prefer to stick with Windows 7.
An advantage is security, consumers don't realize how better Windows 10 performs. Deep protection at its core, it is now the most secure Windows ever. The minute Windows 7 is infected with malware or a virus, the core system files and registry are affected. That required us I.T administrators to be safe and wipe the whole drive, then reinstall a fresh copy of Windows.
Gladly with Windows 10, it functions in a better way preventing malware/virus from modifying the core of the operating system. That keeps the system running safely even after clean ups, opposed to previous Windows versions that would leave us with corrupted system files.
I advice all of you Windows users out there to grab you a license of BitDefender Total Security and save yourself from any hacks, viruses, malware and many other dangerous links on the Internet. I've been using it for years and not a single time I had to wipe/format my PC.
If you prefer not to spend money, Windows 10 still offers built in security. I recommend downloading Anti-MalwareBytes (Free) and CCleaner (also Free). Anti-Malwarebytes has a better chance on finding lots of malware. Usually on most PC's I've worked on it find a lot and cleans them up. CCleaner is essentials for cleaning up unnecessary cache from your Internet Browsers; lots of websites garbage. It also fixes the registry if it finds any adjusted and modified entries.
Choosing the free or the paid security route, you will be saving your PC from malicious attacks causing the system to run extremely slow and sluggish.
*Bitdefender has been ranked the top for four years now. Bitdefender Total Security 2017 is a rock solid Antivirus. Highly recommended protection for Windows users. It includes "One Click Optimization" which is like a PC/Browser cache cleaner. In addition, Bitdefender is designed to use low resources which makes it light on the operating system.
