Re: I didn't bother with a third party anti-virus for Win10

-applications and features being suddenly disabled or removed without your permission,

-demands for money to use your common applications e.g. card games,

-advertising all over the place for services that people want to push you towards,

-leaking of your personal data,

-browser hijacking where your favourite browser gets periodically replaced with one under the miscreants' control,

-unexpected reboots and changes to your environment.

Hang on, that's just Windows 10. When are you getting to the effects of a virus infection?
