      Kaspersky seems dodgy need advice

      I had been using Kaspersky (free with my bank) but I've noticed they inject stuff in https websites (https website's certificates weren't matching when I checked) I can't understand why they would need to do this so I've uninstalled and have a two part question. 1, am I being overly cautious? 2, what other antivirus do people recommend (currently win10 default)?

      In my experience none of them are 100% and never will be, the art of hacking unfortunately makes that impossible.

      I use Webroot, that works pretty well and I get warnings if a site has been reported with security issues before the browser opens the page. It's AV sometimes misses things, or maybe it's because it warns me and I override the warning! I've used most of the AV software over the years, including Eset and all the supposedly pro ones, Webroot is the only one I have stuck with or returned to.

      I think there is a danger of being paranoid, you can only do what you can do, it's a battle of wits.
