Is Windows Defender Bullshit ?

What is Windows Defender ?

Formerly known as Microsoft AntiSpyware and Windows Defender, the software was originally based on GIANT AntiSpyware, acquired by Microsoft on December 16, 2004. It was first released on October 24, 2006.

How it works ?

Windows Defender can detect registry changes, silently manage User Account Control requests, and remove malware via the Recovery Environment.

Important Features

Real-time damage protection: Windows Defender works silently in the background, actively scanning your system for running and accessing files, and when it encounters any threats, it stops and quarantines it. If you wish, you can exclude certain files and folders from scanning.


If you are a home user or a small business, Windows Defender may be suitable for use. Of course, this is not a definitive solution and does not provide you with complete protection.
