Windows Defender Review by PC Magazine

»»Windows Defender Review by PC Magazine

PC Magazine reviewed just released Windows Defender Beta 2, which previously named Microsoft AntiSpyware. PC Magazine is not so amaze with Windows Defender, giving it just a fair rating of 2.5 out of possible 5.

Bottom Line: We like Windows Defender’s new interface and the reduction in warning pop-ups, but its protection still needs work.

Pros: Redesigned interface is clear and simple. Detailed information about spyware and traces. Pop-ups limited to essentials. “Advanced SpyNet” option to see all notifications and participate in analysis.

Cons: In testing, removed less than half of the spyware it detected. Spyware blocking only marginally better than previous version’s.
