MSE and Window defender

is windows defender offline and MSE have the same power of getting rid of viruses?

whats the advantage of them to each other?

and if im already infected with virus is windows defender offline can detect or restore the infected files?

im using MSE now and im just observe that viruses was automatically detect from USB/flashdrive and put it to quarantined items but not totally remove^^ is that can effect my files??

i try to delete them manually to confirmed that the virus is totally deleted from USB,but it was moved to quarantined items..

MSE is better. When you install MSE, it disables Defender.
Click on the “Quarantined items” radio button to display the list of quarantined items. Then click the “Remove all” command button, or select a specific item and click the “Remove” button.

I believe MSE and WDO use the same heuristics and signatures to identify malware. The big difference as I understand it is WDO launches its scan before the operating system boots which makes it more successful in finding rootkits. Perhaps others will jump in with a better explanation of the differences.

Two different products. Windows Defender and Windows Defender Offline aren't the same product. Another example of Microsoft using similar names to make things difficult.

If MSE and WDO can't remove it, I would try the free version of Malwarebytes. If that is unsucessful you can also try ESET Online Scanner. If neither of those work for you please let us know. There are other programs we can recommend.

It could be you have some older Java installations on your system, since upgrading Java doesn't uninstall the older versions.

This tool will help you uninstall Java & ferret out the older versions for removal:

JavaRa | SingularLabs

JavaRa is a simple tool that does a simple job: it removes old and redundant versions of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE). Simply select “Check for Updates” or “Remove Older Version” to begin. JavaRa is free under the GNU GPL version two.
Once you remove everything Java related, do a scan with the tools Petey7 mentioned, and if the system comes back clean, then re-install Java

No you don't need to remove either one when using the other. MAM and MSE work well together. I have use MSE with MAM free and Pro and have never had a problem.

If it were me, I would uninstall all variations of Java, run a scan with MSE & MBAM, remove all issues found by either of those two tools, then reinstall the latest Java. If you don't really need Java, then I would not reinstall it, as it is an easy target for attacks. The easiest way to find out if you really need Java, is to not install it, and then use your machine as normal and if you don't get prompted to install Java while doing your normal routine, then you don't really need it. I have been Javaless for over 2yrs and don't miss it a bit.
