Faced with these attacks, Kaspersky, Bitdefender and F-Secure were the best protection offered to the system with 100% detection. Windows Defender had the worst results by far compared to other antivirus with 79% efficiency.
The second test is performed to analyze the ease with which the virus analyzed and eliminated 60,000 different types of malware based on the analysis of real-time system.
The third test analyzes and compares the minimum requirements and ease of use of the security suite. The less user intervention required by the application, best results are obtained in this test.
Windows Defender is by far the least efficient antivirus compared to other Windows antivirus. Despite this, it won the best note as to use and easily. Windows Defender just have configuration options and comes bundled with Windows 8 by default, Windows 7 users can opt for a manual download free antivirus. Microsoft should improve their product if they want to offer a real alternative to the current antivirus.
