Should I upgrade Malware-bytes or Avast...?

    Hi!
    I currently run Avast and Malware-bytes together, just from briefly researching that it's the best thing to do...being secure online, etc.

    I'm wondering though if I should pay / upgrade for one, or the other...or are they both worth upgrading?!

    Need some advice.

    Thanks

    What version of Windows are you running?

    If you are using Win 10, then hold off on upgrading. Because 3rd party antivirus programs are known to cause various compatibility problems on Win 10. Wait a few weeks to see if any problems appear before upgrading.
