Windows Defender

Windows Defender, officially called Windows Security on Windows 10 and later, is a built-in malware protection tool for Microsoft's line of operating systems. The software comes bundled with the OS and provides real-time protection against viruses, spyware, adware, and other types of malicious software. It can perform automated scans as well as manual scans of specific files or your entire computer system. Additionally, Windows Defender integrates with the Windows Firewall to enhance network security from threats over the internet or local networks.
