I wish their UI improved with their detection rates. It would be such a good AV to use if the interface was usable.
I suppose that goes without saying. We all know how slow M$ is to change, and don't know what reasons are behind decisions they make.I wish they'd update the UI to add the advanced options to the UI itself, or even an Advanced Settings button to adjust settings right there in the UI, Improve full scan speed, as well as removal of threat speed if possible. Its got plenty of room for UI improvements.
Use Configure_Defender if you're not already, and apply some OS hardening. Malware doesn't magically appear out of nowhere. Safe browsing habits go a very long way in avoiding infection.Just hopefully i'm protected enough with Defender is my other worry, find myself running Scans with Malwarebytes Every week right now.
Here's the latest report on Windows Defender from M$:
Interesting quote from the report.While current antivirus tests don’t necessarily reflect how attacks operate and how solutions are deployed in the real world, they can influence important business decisions. We are actively working with several leading industry testers to evolve security testing.
