Much to my surprise, Windows Defender has significantly Improved over the years.

I'm actually quite Impressed with It's overall detection & protection.

It really has, it used to be unusable.
But now if you don't plan on doing anything sketchy it's a valid option, still not as good as Norton of Kaspersky though :p

I agree that you cannot compare Windows Defender with Kaspersky and Norton, nor Avira.

That said, It offers very good protection for a native Windows security suite/center.

Exactly, for basic web searching and gaming, having anything else won't be necessary.

Agree.

On my test system, due to Windows Defender's real-time detection namely "false positives" with my tools, I've disabled It permanently via the GPE (Group Policy Editor). As said, I'm quite Impressed with It, however In this case It's a hindrance more than anything else.

Yeah I can see your point, on my personal PC I use Norton Security. It's just a personal preference.

On my workstations I don't have any, as for you there's a lot of false positives.

Yeah I can see your point,  on my personal PC I use Norton Security. It's just a personal preference.

I also use Norton on selected systems.

I've been using It since the days of the good old bloated Norton SystemWorks 2001, and when It's anti-spam & firewall were separate entities.

You probably won't remember the 16-Bit "Windows 3.1".

This Is going back to the early 90s.
