Anyone have any comment or advice on the topic?
I noted WDef is very slow to scan, time to run full scan is double than ny previous McAfee.
McAfee Site Advisor also had slowed my browser last week on.

I have two friends, who's opinion I respect, that work in IT for a large company and when I asked them about which antivirus to purchase for my home computer they both said they use Windows Defender. I can't speak to the speed of the software in doing it's job but it,  along with Ccleaner seems to keep my computer running well and I assume free of viruses.
