I will now see how I get along with Microsoft Security and by the way Simon it's not called Defender any more.  ;D

To be pedantic, it's called Microsoft Defender (formerly Microsoft Security Essentials) on Windows 10.   ;)

Does Microsoft Defender have to be turned on or is it there in the background anyway? I've never seen any reference to it on my computers.

It will be turned on by default unless you have any other anti-virus software on the machine, as other anti-virus software will disable Microsoft Defender.  You may have to re-enable Microsoft Defender having removed other anti-virus software.

I know it's early days, but after running other paid for anti-virus software (Kaspersky, Norton, Bullguard and Mcafee) over the years my computer seems to be running smoother and even quicker at the moment, time will tell.  :thumb:

It kicked in as soon as I un-installed Kaspersky and then asked if I wanted to run a quick scan.
