defender is integrated into MSSE I am pretty sure.

I had to uninstall it on the machine I was testing it on since it would over ride whatever I was doing on the computer when it decided it should update or scan and it was too hard a performance hit. I need a computer that does what I tell it to do :thumbsup:


I still install it on the computers of clients who have a track record of not running manual scans or refusing to do updates. It is better than the disabled or outdated crap usually ignored by users who are not very sophisticated.

Yes, MSE turns off Windows Defender.

Personally, I feel as though both are inadequate, and you should look elsewhere for anti-malware software (Avast would be my first recommendation). :thumbsup:

I use W7 firewall because my Intel dealer recommend it and I am one of the few that I know of that uses Trend Mirco Antivirus . It has worked well for me. Your choice of what to use will take some home work. I do thank M/S for getting more involved in security; saying that I don't know why it took so long. With the money and people they have if they put in on the high priority of there company it would be great. Must not be money in it for them as they see it. From my understanding most people also keep (on demand only) Super Anti Spyware and Malwarebytes anti-malware bytes. With a looking around on this site you will find there sites. P/S Lots of times on this site reading what is pinned will be a lot of help :thumbsup: Aboard

I use my router as a firewall as it is the first part of my network.
