How to protect your Windows 10 PC

Where’s Security Essentials?

If you have Windows 10, you can’t get Microsoft Security Essentials. But you don’t need it, because you already have Windows Defender, which provides the same level of protection.

In the search bar, type Windows Defender.
Pick Windows Defender in the results. You’ll be able to check your computer and your level of virus protection.

Turn Windows Defender on or off

In Windows 10, Windows Defender is always on and always working to protect your PC. It will turn itself off if you install another antivirus app.
Defender uses real-time protection to scan files that you add or run on your PC. Temporarily turn off real-time protection by going to Settings > Update & security > Windows Defender.

  1. When I commence a ‘Full’ scan, with Windows Defender; and, I then minimise the display to get on with other things, the scan seems to stop. However, as soon as I ‘maximise’ the display again, the scan re-commences: consequently, a scan can take all day?
    Is this normal; or, am I ‘missing’ something here? I would be grateful for your opinions.
