So , one of those fixes may apply to Defender. Never used any Window's security stuff since Windows 3.11 WFW.
And you really do need an entire Security Suite. Say you accidentally go on a "questionable" site. Your IP is known and the ++++ fill it in with
despicable words, use your IP address to implant some maleware on your system not registered in the defs or they disable the AV to where it shows
still running. The nastiest kind .
i only mentioned Comodo as that is what I have used since my Norton days. Got tired of reupping my subscription . Switched around 2001-2002 . Never
went back. But there are many others just as good. And they are free.
ISS with firewall , stealth all ports , use a good fast proxy and server , keep AV defs up to date , keep OS patches updated. Use Firefox if
acceptable. (I know , not as many "goodies , but a HADES lot more secure). Keep Malewarebytes and a program named Spybot Search and Destroy around
just in case you see any suspicious activity
