Windows Defender is a security software application that protects your Windows operating system against spyware, malware and other software that is considered dangerous by preventing, removing or quarantining them.
If you’re a hardcore Internet surfer, then you definitely require additional security technology when you expose your computer to a multitude of unnecessary pop-up ads, undesired automatic changes to Internet settings, and anything that can slow down the performance of your operating system.
Windows Defender can only be installed on Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 and 2 and Windows XP; starting with Windows Vista and up, the application is being shipped as a built-in security feature. It is essential to remove other security technologies before installing Windows Defender, as this can potentially cause harm to your operating system.
The interface in Windows Defender is pretty standard. You can perform three different types of scans: Quick (a speedy analysis of the critical files), Full (thoroughly analyzes the system) and Custom (allows you to select the locations to be analyzed). The scan reports display the malicious software infiltrated in the system and urges you to remove it or quarantine it.
The History section allows you to view all Windows Defender’s activities, while the Tools area enables you to customize the software’s options, set up quarantined or allowed items, or download the latest updates.
Windows Defender uses little RAM and boasts real-time protection features, such as Auto Start (monitors pre-configured programs that automatically run at startup), Internet Explorer Add-ons (monitors extensions that automatically run at Internet Explorer startup), Internet Explorer Configurations (monitors the status of settings in Internet Explorer), and a few others.
If you’re running an operating system newer than XP, Windows Defender is already included in your system’s security. For older operating systems, it’s certainly a recommendable addition for the sole purpose of strengthening your PC’s security level.
