Hi, britechguy & quietman7!
Thank you both for the prompt and insightful replies!
Of course, it is great that Microsoft by default provides Windows Defender 10 Antivirus to all users of their newest OS, so that they have a free built-in security solution which like third-party security solutions, consists of multi-layered protection modules against malware.
However, it is optional for users as to whether or not use it, and in the latter case rather choose third-party security solutions if they so wish, even if these are commercial and personally, I happen to belong to this latter kind of users.
Because, on my first, second and current computer I always used and continue to use third-party security solution(s), and right now I am using Emsisoft Anti-Malware (also a third-party security solution).
IOW, I have never really just relied on Microsoft's security solutions, and despite that I know the quality of their now-called Windows Defender Antivirus is steadily improving with every new major version of their newest OS, there is actually no chance whatsoever for me to change from a third-party security solution back to Microsoft's, and besides, I will continue to keep all my other third-party security programs mentioned in my signature.
And, after all, the reason why third-party security vendors exist and continue to do so, is that they specialize in their business.
Thank you very much for the help!
The issue has been successfully resolved!
