I have a quick question; Should I download a free antivirus program like AVG to supplement window defender or is window defender all I need with windows 8.1 ?

If I did download AVG free would there be any conflict issues with window defender ?

Ideally you should run one anti-virus at a time. You can run more than one anti-malware program though but it is not advisable.

If you’re just looking for basic cybersecurity protection, then yes, Windows Defender is fine. But if you have a lot of sensitive information on your device which might attract hackers — banking info, login details, private files — then no, it’s not “enough”. For example, some ransomware like cerber ransomware that targets to destroy your data and demands a cryptocoin payment cannot be detected by Windows Defender.
If you want to try AVG free on your computer, you might want to disable Windows Defender first. It is not recommended to run more than one anti-malware program on a computer at the same time. It could slow down your device and cause some performance problems like frozen screen due to incompatibilities.

I recently got my new laptop with Windows 8 about a month back and found that its WiFi was flip flop. After disabling the MCAFEE and enabling the windows defender everything is FINE and even my system performance is also improved.

I have Windows 8.1 64-bit! Irfanview works fine for me but I've had to un-install.

Now I'm trying to re-install it to get it to function properly but it's telling me to manually create the directory and try again.

Are any of you experiencing this difficulty? Will/can some one please show me how to get this installed again and up and running?

I have the most up to date installment pack for Windows 8.1, How ever, every since I've had this, I can't install any more applications/programs. Not a single one.

Every thing else works fine. I keep getting "can't create temp folder" error every time I try to install new programs. I've deleted the temp folder and tried "install ad admin" and those things but nothing works.

Please help.

I don't know why it is happening like this and what is the solution for this problem.
