Microsoft Windows Antivirus provides real-time protection for your home or says small business system; it can protect it from the different harmful virus-like viruses or spyware. This software works along with Windows Firewall.

Microsoft Windows Antivirus is not only easy to use and install but it also free of cost.
It runs in the background in the very effective way so you are free to use your Windows-based PC in the way you want.

So that their operating systems will have their own antivirus protection, Microsoft has developed their own antivirus applications designed only for the Microsoft Windows operating systems. There are two: Microsoft Security Essentials or MSE and Windows Defender. Microsoft Security Essentials ran on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 but not on Windows 8 and higher prior to version 4.5.

Microsoft Security Essentials 4.5 and higher don’t run on Windows XP. When a problem or threat is detected, Microsoft Security Essentials automatically blocks it and alerts the user. You can also use it to manually scan your computer. Microsoft Security Essentials is free for home users and for small businesses with up to 10 computers. Microsoft Security Essentials was replaced by Windows Defender in Windows 8 and higher.

Windows Defender is the anti-malware tool bundled with Windows 8 and Windows 10 and provides complete antivirus protection. It can also be installed in Windows 7 but it will only provide spyware protection.
