Paul many times recommended that most home users are perfectly fine running Windows Defender as their main protection on Windows 10. Couple of months ago I stopped paying for protection software and used Defender since. I'm pretty happy with it and Windows 'felt' snappier in comparison to the paid antivirus.
However many antivirus test sites like AV-Test or AV-comparatives argue that Windows Defender slows down the PC noticeably and consume significant resources. I'm thinking about moving to a cloud based solution like Comodo Cloud Antivirus or Webroot, as in theory, they should use less system resources - which is something I need on my Atom based Windows 10 tablet :)
What are your observations? Is Windows Defender the best choice for low end PCs?
So I had this problems on recent Insiders builds and now did a clean install of Fall Creators Update and Edge is not displaying suggestions on the search bar.
No matter which search engine I chose as the default no suggestions? Anyone else has this?
I know this topic has been covered many times, but I can't seem to get a definitive answer. Windows 10 generally is quite good at installing most drivers on its own, but most of the time these are stripped down versions. This is true for Nvidia drivers or sound chips. So I would imagine that its best to get those drivers from their respective manufacturers in order to get all the features and performance. What about motherboard drivers, wifi, bluetooth etc?
I recently bought an ASUS UX401uq laptop and this is where I'm coming from: on the ASUS support site most drivers are couple of months old, Windows Update provides mostly up-to-date drivers for things like Intel Management Engine, Intel Dynamic Thermal Framework etc, but fails to provide them for the Intel Graphics (year old) or Nvidia 940mx (3 months). Intel provides its generic drivers. Finally there is a blog that aggregates all drivers for ASUS hardware and provides updates for all drivers, that normally are impossible to find.
So if I’m aiming for maximum battery life and stability, which drivers should I use?
