Query about antivirus pre-installation

Recently I ordered a Lenovo IdeaPad 330 81de01jwin and it isn't delivered yet. While purchasing I went through its specifications and there was no mention of any antivirus pre-installation. I want to know whether this laptop comes with any pre-installed antivirus or not?

Re: Query about antivirus pre-installation

IMO it is always better to purchase a good third party anti-malware suite (if using Windows) from a top shelf vendor such as AVAST, Malwarebytes, Kaspersky and such.

Any preloaded "trial" version of McAfee, Norton or BitDefender should be replaced as soon as possible with a better solution.

Re: Query about antivirus pre-installation

You are most welcome! Make sure to research which vendor of Anti-Virus or Anti-Malware you are thinking about.... I go with the best "in the wild" detection rates then look at "ease of use" features.

Personally I have used AVAST for several years now (both Free and paid for version) with great results. I also run MalwareBytes (free version) as kind of a "flu shot" about once a month just to be safe.
