Is there such a thing as MSE in the Windows 10 ecosystem?
I did not include discussion of MSE strictly because the OP noted that they were running Windows 10, and I thought after Windows 7 Windows Defender (in its current guise, not the one as an antimalware scanner that it had on Win7 and earlier) completely supplanted MSE.
When I did a Windows 7 to Windows 10 upgrade yesterday on a friend's computer under the Win10 Upgrade for Assistive Technology Users (she is blind and uses screen readers, so qualifies) the process explicitly said it was removing MSE and that it would be replaced by Windows Defender, which it was.

. . . the presumption of innocence, while essential in the legal realm, does not mean the elimination of common sense outside it. The willing suspension of disbelief has its limits, or should.
