Security Suggestion Due To Lack Of New ClamWin Versions

I have uninstalled ClamWin due to the lack of any updates of new Clam AV versions for well over a year now and also because of the atrocious slow scanning (which was improved in one of the latest new Clam AV versions that we don't yet have).

I have installed OS Armor from the No Virus Thanks people from Italy. It is free, and I think it might run on Win XP systems (I use it on Windows 10). It is not an antivirus scanner, but it scans in real-time to protect/harden your computer against many malware behaviors. It has main protections against the execution of suspicious processes, exploit protection, and it also has some advanced protection settings, which you can customize protections if you know what you are doing. I just enable it and accept the default protections which are pretty good. It provides good protection along with Windows Defender (which has been greatly improved over the last couple of years). ClamWin sorely lacks real-time scanning, and it just does not do the job against today's malware.
