Windows Defender = most annoying antivirus i've ever used.

It keeps deleting a lot of the stuff i download, i'm considering getting another antivirus that doesn't give me the middle finger like that.

Maybe cause some of those stuffs are, IDK, really BAD? People dont magically get viruses on their PC just by switching it on.

I dont think Defender has ever deleted any of my stuffs before.

Avast is pretty good. Personally speaking, probably the best anti-virus I've ever used. Not a big fan of their latest interface though.

Antiviruses have a bad habit of deleting stuff without telling you first, which is why I never enable real-time protection. Many times they are false positives unless you are really stupid about where and what you download your stuff from.

Windows Defender I just disable the service altogether because of this.

I never had Windows Defender delete anything. Not sure what's going on in your computer.

taking TC's username into account, I'm going to go out on a limb here (though i'm basically guaranteed to be correct) and say that he's been watching porn and torrenting while 'blazing 420 yolo b****'. maybe even downloading some free coupon software too.

False positives happen with any AV, but odds are it's a case your downloading habits that need to be corrected

I don't download porn lol, i'm not stupid, and i don't trust free coupon softwares either, there's just way too many of them for it to be legit.

Also, most of the stuff i download doesn't have any kind of virus, Defender just assumes it's a virus.
