According to independent tests, Microsoft's own antivirus application, Windows
Defender, is the worst available.


Good job I'm using AVG as well then, but at least Windows Defender
being included with the system ensures that everybody must be using
something, which is better than nothing. Earlier versions with no
antivirus are wide open.

How about Microsoft Security Essentials? That's the one I use with
Windows 7 (free).

The risk is that people will believe that Defender is sufficient. It
isn't.
