    Windows Defender AntiVirus


    Hello,
    Today I saw on the screen a notice from windows defender (?) as on attached screenshot. It is for the first time, this notice never came before.
    I did not press any button on this notice, just took the screenshot to send to you for advice.
    Windows defender is updated allways, sometimes twice a day, when starting computer I run a scan, nothing found.
    Do you know something about it, what shell I do if it comes again.
    Answers will be appreciated.
    Thanks


    :)

    There are 4 options under Defender. Two refer to AntiVirus; AntiVirus Network Inspection Service & AntiVirus Services. Under Startup Type these two are listed as manual and the Status column said Inspection Service is running. When I clicked on the Start
    button in Properties, I got an immediate message: "Win.. Def.. Anti.. Serv.. on local comp.. started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs."

  3. Windows Defender - antivirus?

    Windows defender is a built in antivirus, that detects all type of threats.You do not need to install any 3rd party antivirus.

    In windows 7 and earlier Microsoft security essentials was to be used with windows defender for a full system protection, but in Windows 8 and later windows defender's capabilities have been increased to make it a full fledged antivirus.

    I suggest rolling with Windows Defender (preinstalled)+Malwarebytes for a full system security.
