    Due to the small number of samples used in these tests, you should take results with a grain of salt. We encourage you to compare these results with others and take informed decisions on what security products to use.

    Do you think Windows Defender is still a quality product for already SAFE USERS?

    With some addons on browser or maybe Sandboxie it should be fine...+ Brain.exe

    It is basic AV, you could build security around that...VoodooShield+Win10firewall control or add Comodo Firewall...

    Thank you for taking the time to perform and share with us the test

    Would it be possible to know what kind of malware are used in tests?

    And are smartscreen and UAC enabled?

    Thank you

    Anybody know about the version of Defender in the creator's update? Is it better than this and does it slow down the PC?
