There are so many antispyware software programs out there to use that sometimes it is hard to know which one to pick.
Do you use the latest release from the established leader?
Or do you use the software that everyone in the security world is praising?
Yes, they are the experts but this software is brand new and untested on millions of machines like the other solutions are.
What does that say about the reliability of the product?
If you are having problems choosing an antispyware client to run on Windows 7, why not choose the one that has been highly rated since Windows 7 was released.
Yes, we are talking about Windows Defender.
It may not, perhaps, be the best piece of software ever but it is certainly known to get the job done.
In this article I will give you several reasons why Windows Defender should be your first choice to get rid of spyware on the Windows 7 operating system.
The number one reason why you should have Windows Defender on your Windows 7 system is Microsoft’s familiarity with the problem.
That familiarity runs on two points:
The first point is that they have experience dealing with Browsers and the problems that happen behind the scenes – other spyware companies out there may be able to reverse engineer the browser to see where the problem may be but there is nothing like being able to look at the actual source code and see where the problem is located.
The Windows Defender team can do this with Internet Explorer.
The second point is that no-one knows how to deal with problems that may affect the operating system like Microsoft’s own team.
When it comes to Windows 7 the developers that make Windows Defender are deep in the trenches with the Microsoft team so they may be able to figure out a problem quicker than the other anti spyware developers out there.
It pays dividends to be able to work with the people who created the product as you are able to get some of their insights on how to fix the problem.
Another reason why you should use Windows Defender on your Windows 7 system is that the software comes highly regarded by the security community.
I said earlier in the article that you should avoid software that has been highly praised but not been tested in a consumer version.
Well, this software has been highly praised and has also been tested in millions of computers around the world.
There is a world of difference between the two.
If you are interested in making sure that you are running completely safe software then the tested version is the way to go.
Running Windows Defender is a great way to keep spyware off of your computer.
If you have any questions about which antispyware program that you should run, go with a proven winner.
