    Default Is windows defender good as an antivirus?

    Hello everyone, I've installed Windows 8 CP for several weeks and enjoy it so far. Here I am just wondering is windows defender a good antivirus? Is it as good as avast or norton or any other well-known antivirus.

    'dude'

    Short answer, an emphatic, YES! Actually, change good to, @ least, very good. It is, @ least, as good as Avast & far better than, horrid stuff, like Norton.

    Cheers,
