Antivirus Help

Post by Brii » 28 Sep 2016, 09:07

Hello. So my antivirus program expired so I uninstalled it. My laptop recommended I'd scan it using Windows Defender so I did. I chose a quick scan option and started it last night. It has been 10 hours since I initiated the scan and it is not done scanning. Does anyone know of a free program I can use to protect my computer? Or any way to accelerate the scan from Windows Defender? Any help would be appreciated since I am pretty much clueless with technology.

I recommend Malwarebytes program as it scans your computer completely, and proves to be better than Windows Defender in my opinion. It has a free version as well.
