    It depends what build of (I'm assuming you use) Win 10 you have weather you can use Defender or not. Newer builds of Win 10 will automatically disable Defender if you install another AV solution. Microsoft even admits that Defender is only meant for users that don't have or don't want to use a good third-party AV anyways. I've never used Defender myself as it's not a robust AV compared to some free AV products even! This has been proven once again by 'recent' AV Comparatives testing. Most of the major player's AV products are compatible with Immunet. Such as AVG, Avira, AVAST, Norton, McAfee, Trend Micro, Kaspersky & others. If you look at the Immunet's Exclusion list a number of AV's are already excluded by default. Personally I have Immunet paired with Panda Dome Pro. It is a great idea if you use Immunet as a companion AV to create an exclusion/exception/allow rule for 'Immunet's entire Program Files folder' for the other AV. If the other AV you choose is not listed with Immunet's Exclusion list then also create a custom Exclusion rule for the other AV's entire Program Files folder as well. This really can go a long way at avoiding possible future conflicts or problems between both AV's. They should recognize each other as safe programs. Also, if you do use Immunet as a companion AV to another product it is recommended that you disable the ClamAV module & updates for it and just use the cloud engines instead. This will (sometimes significantly) decrease system resources being used by Immunet. Best wishes, Ritchie... P.S. - I'm not completely unfamiliar with Comodo. Back in the day I used just the Firewall & Defense+ modules minus the AV module enabled for some older builds of Windows. I quit using Comodo back then because it was increasingly becoming a resource hog (bloatware).

    Thank you very much Ritchie! It's good that only unknown or suspicious files are sent while keeping privacy. And if it's okay I wish to ask another question. What good AV is good to use with Immunet currently? I tried to download the Comodo AV+Firewall but was met with troubles from both my Immunet av and browsers that see the setup file as harmful. I was told then that Comodo is not that good now and it was better to just use Windows defender in this case. Any thoughts on that?

    ETHOS is one of two cloud based detection engines that Immunet uses. The difference is the cloud based engines will be looking for known malware signatures. The cloud engines also have learning heuristic capabilities that can detect possibly malicious activity and react to the possible threat in real time. If you decide to send files to Immunet with the 'Send files to Immunet for analysis' setting enabled means that any unknown or possibly suspicious file that Immunet encounters will be uploaded for further investigation. Of course it's up to you if you wish to use this feature but keep in mind that no user identifiable information is included in any uploaded file so your privacy is assured. It is highly recommended that both the ETHOS & SPERO cloud engines always remain enabled with Immunet. I hope that answers your questions. Cheers, Ritchie...
