    How does Windows Defender compare, in quality, to other anti-virus?

    Not a very sensible choice of wording, IMO... There's no One Size Fits All and we don't do any kind of polls/ratings here in MC.

    Suggestion to educate yourself by doing some researches by using your favorite search engine.
