Acceptable Computer Virus Protection

Biostar Technology only supports Windows Defender (as shown below).

NOTE: Microsoft Defender Antivirus is an anti-malware component of Microsoft Windows. It was first released as a downloadable free anti-spyware program for Windows XP, and was later shipped with Windows Vista and Windows 7

Is Microsoft Defender free?
Microsoft Defender for Individuals is only available as part of a paid subscription to the Microsoft 365 cloud-based office service and strictly protects non-Windows devices. For Mac and Android (but not iOS), you can pay a small subscription fee to use Microsoft's antivirus software.

Is Microsoft Defender a good antivirus?
Microsoft Defender scores 9.6, which is quite a good score. It's better than any other free product tested with this same sample set. Adaware, Avast, and Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition all score 9.2, while Kaspersky, Panda, and Avira score still lower.

Please be advise that when getting a new software from Biostar Technology, you need to make sure that your PC does not have any anti-virus application aside from MICROSOFT WINDOWS DEFENDER.

Should there be any antivirus application captured from your PC/LAPTOP, we will remove/uninstall it from your PC/LAPTOP to proceed with the installation.
