Windows Defender Beta 2

take away its realtime protection and its as good as dead. the scanner never reveals anything on a quick scan and a full scan takes a decade to complete. i used it for six months and my browser got hijacked aswell as other malware that defender failed to detect. and when i scanned after infection it failed to pick anything up. i would try spybot . it has realtime protection but its best feature is its scanner with is very useful at detection and elimination..

Not so crazy about this software, it is free, but it never seems to catch anything.
