What does Windows Defender do?

Windows Defender is Windows’ proprietary anti-virus software. The tool wants to protect you from viruses and other pests and remove them if necessary.

In contrast to other anti-virus programs such as Avast, Avira, or AVG, this is a very basic protection that hardly slows down the system due to its compactness.

Windows mean well with Defender, but the program is extremely unreliable. Compared to other anti-virus programs, Windows Defender always performed much worse in tests.

If you want to protect your computer from the daily threats on the Internet, you should use an alternative from Avast, Avira, AVG, Comodo or Bitdefender. All linked anti-virus programs are free. If you install other software, Windows Defender is automatically deactivated so that the programs do not interfere with each other.
