Windows Defender is software that helps protect your computer against pop-ups, slow performance, and security threats caused by spyware and other unwanted software by detecting and removing known spyware from your computer.
The benefits of installing Windows Defender include:
Spyware detection and removal
- Windows Defender quickly and easily finds spyware and other unwanted programs that can slow down your computer, display annoying pop-up ads, change Internet settings, or use your private information without your consent.
- Windows Defender eliminates detected spyware easily at your direction, and if you inadvertently remove programs that you actually want, it’s easy to get them back.
- Windows Defender allows you to schedule your scanning and removal times when it’s convenient for you, whether it’s on-demand or on a schedule that you set.
