A Review of Windows Defender


Free antivirus software that offers fair protection

Windows Defender is an anti-malware program that is integrated into every Windows 10 and 11 device. It has been tested by three independent organizations and includes a handful of essential features that help it stand out, including cloud backup and parental controls. It’s not the only solution to safeguard against all threats, however. Other top antivirus software programs provide additional features such as a VPN and password manager, in addition to a full range of device security and malware.

The Windows Security dashboard shows how everything is running on your system with green ticks signalling all is good and red ticks indicating things that require attention. It’s easy for you to see what you have to do, although navigating the different settings screens can be difficult.

Microsoft Defender includes a variety of standard security features, including real-time scanning and blocking suspicious connections. It can also block malicious applications from changing system settings and preventing malware from launching from running memory. It also provides advice regarding password changes and account issues. There are a few under-the-bonnet OS security measures too including code isolation and virtualisation-based hardware defenses.

Windows Security also has a knowledgebase with solutions to common issues, as well as a search engine in case you cannot find the information you’re seeking. There are also videos from the community that teach you how to make use of the various features. You receive two days of technical assistance for free and you can also purchase more if necessary.
