Re: Rogers Online Protection on Windows 10?

Not sure if my comment is relevant, but Rogers Online Protection used to be a Norton product. If this is still the case, Norton has released a statement that it will be compatible with Windows 10 at launch date, which is July 30.

You sound like me. The last time I used ROP, it was provided by Norton. It has not been provided by Norton for years now, though I cannot say who provides it now.

Thank you @jimboden and @JohhnyRockets for your participation in the Community. Just so you know the engine running behind ROP is provided by Bitdefender.

 

Cheers,

@ian_sheppard

In addition to the suggestions from @RogersStrick above, you might want to consider downloading Microsoft Security Essentials. It is a free program from Microsoft and if you search these forums, you will find that many Rogers customers actually prefer this to ROP.

Re: Rogers Online Protection on Windows 10?

thanks. Too bad Rogers didn't know Windows 10 was coming. Guess they missed the memo, unlike all of the other AV companies out there.... Think I'll switch back to Norton, or one of the others.

Re: Rogers Online Protection on Windows 10?

Windows 10 actually comes with Microsoft Security Essentials and windows defender built in.

My experience in the past, MSE was catching more than Norton, etc anyways Smiley Tongue
