    so WSA features should also be disabled to be fair, but it wasn't...

    Honestly even you are going to read or not the article, the problem here is first the integrity of the test; second the comparison and third the justification.

    It seems they need to go back on schooling and understand the concept of research.

    Windows Defender is very way simple and in terms of techniques are so far compare on 3rd party programs.

    WSA is decent AV. In fact, it is my favorite AV since it is so incredibly light, but since I have no need of AV I don't mess with it very often. I check it once in a while to see what has been added.

    Journaling and Rollback is nothing but a fancy uninstaller that will require at least remnant cleanup.
