As antivirus programs go, Windows Defender is quite alright. Microsoft’s default security protection in Windows 10 has been on the receiving end of a range of new improvement lately.
Improvements that while are very welcome, still only provide a very basic layer of security.
Austrian firm AV-Comparatives put Windows Defender under the microscope in a new round of tests, and found that the program came in very last in the list of antivirus and security products that are currently available on the market.
It scored okay in most areas, but was actually rather good when it came to malware removal.
