  1. Microsoft safety scan


    Hello,

    I have a small question for my own calm.


    I always do once or twice a month a full scan on my pc with the Microsoft MSERT and their VRTVirus Removal Tool.

    To do a deep check-up for my own comfort.

    Because i am pretty highly OCD when it comes to safety.


    My question just is, i once tried with those + the Kaspersky safety scanner.

    Just cuz i personally find Kaspersky pretty greati do not use the full kaspersky system, i just used the free virus removal tool.


    But, for windows 101909 system; which would give the bestmost accurate results?


    If i would look at it logically, i would say the scans from Microsoft, because Defender is my Anti-virus and i would personally think, that the microsoft scans would scan deeper in the system, cuz it's from Microsoft themselves.


    Could someone maybe calm my mind and give me an answer on this question?


    With much thanks, Blaze.

    :)
