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.
