Windows 7: Is Defender now full-featured AV as in Win8?

And greg, if they run windows 7 on a dual core with that specs it will be fine with panda. Panda is very light. Give it a try. I have a pc running with those specs I gave to someone and it works well.

I'm curious, is Defender (the old defender, not Win8 defender) even a good scanner? Does it ever detect anything? I haven't heard of anyone using it. To me it's just an unnecessary component in windows (bloat). It's also disabled every time you install an AV.

That bad? It does make you wonder why Microsoft even bothered with it and then caused more confusion by re-branding MSE as defender in Win8.

I think there was a name clash with the Munich School of Engineering (MSE) and this software development group.

Thanks, will give Panda a try. Didn't know it was that lightweight.

The issue is apparently MSE built into Win8 would face a huge anti-trust challenge in EU and some other places, but Anti-Trust agreements already grandfathered in clearance for Defender.

It's a cloud av. Can't get any lighter. I don't use there toolbar, its unnecessary. No bloat comes with it, just there toolbar is recommended by them as it scans websites for infection before clicking on them. Also look at the latest av comparatives and av test for it. It's doing well on the items of protection wise.
