    I’ll Bash It

    When Windows defender detects a virus it does not quarantine it it notifies you but lets it to be run more than any other antivirus. This is to focus on user friendliness than maximum strict protection. But since defender is so accurate now they haven’t changed the approach yet.

    Please do a free AV review and how good they are compared to their paid version thank you

  4. ori Shel on December 4, 2021 at 6:41 pm

    Hi, can you please do a test with the software called: Cortex XDR
    I hear good things about her but I am interested to know how good she really is.

  5. Wadoud Kachkach on December 4, 2021 at 6:42 pm

    Does this process recover ur encrypted files by a ransomware?

  6. KINGASH44 on December 4, 2021 at 6:42 pm

    There lot of ransomware dercryption tool pls test them like 360 ransomware removal tool

  7. Otto Alcon on December 4, 2021 at 6:43 pm

    Yes I meant PC MECHANIC it was a typo. Something interesting, I caught a podcast with John McAfee where he said ALL antivirus software today is useless. Hackers can get into anyPC phone if they choose. Hence we are seeing major companies data being held for random, especially hospitals.

  8. Metehan Günaydın on December 4, 2021 at 6:46 pm

    Leo, you make us miss your test videos. 🙂 I hope you are ok in your health. In this pandemia, please don’t let us worry about you and please do some antivirus tests at least per week.. 🙂 Thanks for your great works from now..

    what does happen if you choose to remove/delete all threats in the defender firstly then make full scan in the defender?

  10. antdgar on December 4, 2021 at 6:46 pm


  11. Chinmaya Joshi on December 4, 2021 at 6:48 pm

    Can you please review Quick Heal "Total" Security. I know you have reviewed QH Internet Security but please do review the Total Security.

  12. Jeremy Pilot on December 4, 2021 at 6:48 pm

    is it possible because there are so many threats being thrown at it at once that it can’t mitigate that many at once? Perhaps a real world scenario of taking the ones here that slipped through, try and use them one at a time to see if Windows Defender could catch them then?

  13. Guru Gamer on December 4, 2021 at 6:49 pm

    How does Windows 10 pro built in AV compare with Bitdefender total security 2020?

  14. aceflashheart on December 4, 2021 at 6:51 pm

    Fantastic channel. Can I ask what you recommend for home use if Windows Defender isn’t cutting it?

  15. prasath l on December 4, 2021 at 6:52 pm

    nice video bro,i am using only windows defender and i fully updated windows 10. i am using uefi boot mode and secure boot enabled in my hp laptop.just for information,thanks

  16. The PC Security Channel on December 4, 2021 at 6:52 pm

    Controlled Folder Access was crucial in containing the damage during this test, so I continue to recommend using it if you are running Windows Defender. There will be more comprehensive tests coming up later this year, so don’t forget to subscribe. 🙂

  17. Carnage Camo on December 4, 2021 at 6:53 pm

    can you do kaspersky security cloud free vs avast av free

  18. erjon cota2 on December 4, 2021 at 6:53 pm

    In my testing by browsing randomly on internet on some insecure websites,downloading and installing cracked and infected programs Windows Security is very good on Finding viruses but it still fail 95% of the cases to block and remove them even now on 2021,it always gets stuck on "Taking actions on threats" until you manually remove them and fix errors that they leave on the system.It also gives a lot of false positive results because Controlled Folder Access and PUP Blocking options block safe programs like VLC player,Your Phone app or Rockstar Games launcher or even Epic Games
    Windows Security is still good enough , just don’t visit or touch anything that seems suspicious

  19. Santiago Madariaga on December 4, 2021 at 6:54 pm

    This is like:
    PC: **infected by trojans, ransomware, etc**
    WIn defender: _Chills_

    PC: **Installing cracked games**
    Win defender: _Chills_

    Me: **Installs a clean kmspico activator**
    Win Defender: SH1T! ,,,, **BLOCKS KMSPICO**

  20. 02. Atsaal Bagoes Lazuardy on December 4, 2021 at 6:55 pm

  22. 321bluff on December 4, 2021 at 6:56 pm

  23. Jeremy Pilot on December 4, 2021 at 6:57 pm

    Won’t opening task manager and looking at the startup menu tell you what programs are enabled?

  24. Zep0th on December 4, 2021 at 7:00 pm

  25. Adrian Austria on December 4, 2021 at 7:01 pm

    Is Malwarebytes free still good?

  26. MD Shamsur Rahman Arif on December 4, 2021 at 7:02 pm

    hey guys, recently my laptop got hacked and hackers took my 300k subscribers youtube channel, they first deleted all of my videos then uploaded some Cardano cryptocurrency-related videos completely deleted my channel. I had 2fa turned on but I have no idea how they bypassed it. now I have re-installed windows but still, I am afraid. guys, please suggest me how can I secure my laptop.

    I also want to know how is it possible that they logged into my account without OTP. and how can I secure my other channels?

    any suggestions will be really helpful.

  27. Steve Steve on December 4, 2021 at 7:02 pm

    I still think that Kaspersky is overkill enough 😀

  28. ArtflPhenix on December 4, 2021 at 7:02 pm

    Can you do eset vs bitdefender? or have a top 5 anti malware for 2021?

  29. The Cracked Gamer on December 4, 2021 at 7:04 pm

  30. Arakamani on December 4, 2021 at 7:05 pm

    could you do a video on brave browser vs malware because brave browser has malware protection

  31. Mirrored {} Chaos on December 4, 2021 at 7:05 pm

    windows defender blocked malx that was starting malware programs.

    its getting too smart!

  32. Kai Isla on December 4, 2021 at 7:08 pm

    Could you do a test with M365 ATP? The one that comes M365 Business Premium. Wondering if it really is better than the basic Defender.

  33. POLSKI FENIX YT on December 4, 2021 at 7:09 pm

    2:36 how u openend this window that show u opened things?

  34. ViigA A on December 4, 2021 at 7:10 pm

    So in the end windows defender is s… useless against these malwares

  35. Francisco Santos on December 4, 2021 at 7:13 pm

    hey man can you do a new video on Panda Dome Premium 2021

  36. Frank Whitehead on December 4, 2021 at 7:15 pm

    What is the best anti virus software? I really want to get protected but I don’t know where to start. I want to be safe from malware, ransomware, and whatever else might exist out there.

  37. Valentin on December 4, 2021 at 7:15 pm

    Watching & listening every video at 1.75x speed. Great work, btw!

  38. Wael Ali on December 4, 2021 at 7:21 pm

    So far Comodo best free option

  39. Ben on December 4, 2021 at 7:22 pm

    why You don’t apply ConfigureDefender on windows defender and see the results I know you did it before it just seem a lot more secure that way. and also can you please make a test for AppGuard or OSarmor ?

  40. Juniardi Hartanto on December 4, 2021 at 7:24 pm

    For now we need antivirus that prevent miner running

  41. Logesh P on December 4, 2021 at 7:26 pm

    Pls do the test with K7 total security. Indian AV software

  42. Felutia's Fans on December 4, 2021 at 7:28 pm

    Are virus, malware, spyware, adware, ransomware, and more wares that I don’t know OS-based or it can attack all OS?

  43. Frank Gordon on December 4, 2021 at 7:29 pm

    I have Windows Defender set at the highest protection settings, and it is AWESOME. But when you do that, you have to allow certian programs through the protection of Windows Defender. Like runing Hitman Pro must be allowed through Windows Defender protection before you use it, and after you do that, Hitman Pro works GREAT !! It is now my opinion that Windows Defender is the very best antivirus/firewall for Windows 10, BAR NONE !! The default settings of Windows Defender MUST be reconfigured to get the best results !! When configured correctly, Windows Defender is the VERY BEST !! It really hurts me to say that, becuase I hate Microsoft !! But I just came to my conclusions about Windows Defender in the last two weeks when Bitdefender failed me BIG TIME, leting a nasty virus on my computer from a bad download, but the default settings of Windows Defender saved my computer. Since the bad download two weeks ago, I have learned alot about Windows Defender, and how to configure it at its highest settings. I am now a hardcore Windows Defender Fan! Go and learn your Windows 10 Security Center TODAY, you won’t regret it !! NEVER PAY FOR AN ANTIVIRUS AGAIN, AND NEVER DOWNLOAD A THIRD PARTY ANTIVIRUS/FIREWALL AGAIN !! I STILL HATE MICROSOFT, NONETHELESS !!
