    What does Windows Defender really protects and scans for?

    Does Windows Defender protects against all the known virus, spyware &
    adware?

    That means I no longer need Norton or MacAfee or Micro Trend Antivirus?

    In any case, even if Windows Defender defends against adwares, malwares and
    spywares, it's always best to have multi-layered protection for your computer
    because Windows Defender (or any other anti-malicious-software tools out
    there) cannot detect threats every single time. ;)

    Cheers.

    Not really. I always belief the minimum software stuff in your system is the
    best. These Anti-Virus programs takes up lots of programming powers. And at
    least I know of two, Micro Trend in particular, their Vista Anti-Virus
    program is itself defective.

    Micro Trend Anti-virus Program 2008 blocks Vista program menu change, even
    it you disable it. That means, even you delete program menu entries, it will
    keep coming back, in your next reboot. Also, it purposely sort your program
    menu, even if you re-order it. Our email questions to them went un-answered.

    As for the Micro Trend thing, my first reaction to be honest was, 'That's
    got to suck, man.' I think they're going to fix it though, because there are
    going to be lots of people complaining about it, so most probably they'll
    release a fix or new version in early 2008 or something.

    Off-topic: [/ROBOT-TALK] I have not heard of Micro Trend before. [ROBOT-TALK]

  5. It scans for Adware & Malware. You would need a separate Anti-Virus. A
    good free one is AVG Free. Defender works fine, but you may want to run
    a second anti-spyware program (Spybot, AdAware). You don't have to run
    them as realtime scanners. You can just run them as needed, probably
    once a week.

    Another thing I like least of these Anti-Virus program is, they always seems
    to activate itself and starts scanning the most busy time when you need done
    something quick. Even if you turn off the scheduled scanning, but, you have
    NO option to turn off the self activated system scanning. This goes for
    McAfee and Micro Trend. We drop Norton years ago, because it failed to pick
    up all the sypware and adware - and require seperate packages.

    "Spybot Search and Destroy" is the proper name; "Spybot" is a trojan!
    Use the above link!

    For anti-virus, use Avast Free 4 Home. It is non-intrusive, and is not
    resource hungry.
    AND it works!

    Defender misses so, so much, and is a drag on your comp!

  9. No, not at all. Three points.

    1. It protects against non-viral malware (spyware and adware) only. It
    provides *no* antivirus protection.

    2. No such product, regardless of what kind or kinds of malware
    (viruses, trojans, worms, spyware, adware, etc.) it protects against,
    is perfect and nothing protects against "all the known" anythings.

    3. Particularly when it comes to adware and spyware, no single product
    is anywhere near perfect. Note what Eric Howes, who has done extensive
    testing on Anti-Spyware products, states:

    "No single anti-spyware scanner removes everything. Even the
    best-performing anti-spyware scanner in these tests missed fully one
    quarter of the "critical" files and Registry entries" See
    http://spywarewarrior.com/asw-test-guide.htm

    You should run at least two anti-spyware products, not just Windows
    Defender.


    No, it doesn't mean anything like that at all. You still need an
    anti-virus program (but preferably not Norton or McAfee, probably the
    two *worst* anti-virus programs). And you still need at least one
    other anti-spyware program.

    Another great thing about Avast is that the interface is pretty intuitive. ;)

    Defender is not a universal medecine for all the virus, spyware & adware
    problems. It is a good software that finds a lot of spyware/malware, but it
    is NOT an antivirus. It's not a firewall neither.

    If you have only Defender installed (and no other security software) then it
    make your computer an easy pray for viruses and attacks.

    Personally I use Defender once every few days to make a scan of the whole
    system. Also I have Ad-Aware installed that I run once a week. It is similar
    to Defender, but it's always good to have an alternative since no one can
    garantee that Defender (or any other antispyware) will find every single
    threat in your system.

    As antivirus I use AVIRA, a really cool piece of software that never let me
    down for the past 2,5 years (I used it on XP, and now I have it on Vista).
    They update their virus definitions several times a day and they have a
    quite powerful scanner that scans on the fly every single file you access
    (and it is not a resource hog like Norton of Trend Micro). There is a free
    edition at http://www.free-av.com/ (for personal use only) and a commercial
    version at http://www.avira.com/en/pages/index.php (the commercial version
    has a built-in antispyware, antiphishing, firewall etc... but the antivirus
    scanner is the same as in the free version).

    Another thing that IMO every computer should have is a firewall. You have a
    very wide spread of possibilities (including free ones). It's up to you to
    make a choice. I would recommend Zone Alarm Free that I use for about 1 year
    and find simple to configure and use. A firewall protects you from unwanted
    connection from (an to) the Internet. You can control what installed program
    can or cannot go online without your permission, update itself, or (in the
    case of spyware) detect a software that tries to send gathered information
    from your system somewhere (troyans, keyloggers etc...). In a few words, you
    know what's going through your connection.

    What's been said in a previous post about "the less software installed - the
    best" is not true. The less security software you have, the more
    mal/spy/ad/ware software you'll get. Of course there is no sense in
    installing 3 antiviruses, 5 antispywares an 2 firewalls (that would look
    like paranoia :) ) but I would recommend to any user to install
    a) an antivirus software (and update the virus definitions daily),
    b) a firewall (or at least turn on the windows firewall, it's not as bad as
    a lot of people say or think)
    c) an antispyware (at least use Defender a couple time a week, and don't
    forget to update the definitions here too!).

    Wow! that's a lot of letters I typed here, hopefully someone will find them
    useful! :)

    If it hasn't let you down, then it must have found lots of virusus.
    Please post details, you should find lots of information in the antivirus log file.
    Thanks very much.

    The problem is that I purge all log files every few weeks. So I really can't
    tell you how much viruses it stopped for the past 2.5 years since I don't
    have that information...

    Here's the log file from 22.11.2007 to 05.12.2007 from my home computer,
    don't know if it will tell you something about avira's quality though...
    These are just the GUARD detections, I did not export the warnings, nor the
    results of weekly scanning (the list would be 4x longer).

    enjoy...

    I our case in this office with around over 20+ computers, no virus was ever
    found for 3 years since I am here. We have Norton, McAfee and Micro Trend.
    Only those so call virus was found were cookies.

    You use three AVs on one machine? Or, those three are used separately
    on different machines?

    I certainly hope your IT guy doesn't run those three in real-time
    at once. That's just ignorant.

    I use NOD32 on all my machines and ClamWin as an on-demand
    second opinion.

    No, we have over 30+ machines. Each machine only use one antivirus program.
    Typically these antivirus programs comes pre-installed in the systems, such
    as Dell or HP...

    IMO, using the same AV for all computers makes much
    more sense. Having some type of free AV for an on-demand
    "second opinion" can be helpful, too.
