McAfee Anitivrus vs Windows Defender
  

Hi,
I am using windows vista in my laptop. Now I had purchased a wireless broadband connection for the laptop. I had not installed any antivirus in my laptop. Because I had enabled Windows Defender. In scanning it does not shows any threats. So here I am going to go online now. I have a single user pack of McAfee. I want to know which one is better. Should I go with windows defender or install McAfee antivirus. Which is the most powerful among them which can protect my system from online threats. Thanks in advance.

Windows Defender is an anti-spyware tool. It is suitable for offline work. But if you are going online then I will recommend you to install McAfee. Because windows defender cannot to protect your system form online threat. It will be much better if McAfee is an Internet Security. Defender is good but it does not gives protection to an advance level. Better install the antivirus and keep it upto date.

McAfee is an powerful anitivirus. If you have the free version then go with Defender. But the official copy of McAfee is enough powerful to protect your system from regular threats. It has many options and features which gives you the best security options. The antivirus has received VB100% award. The Internet Security version of McAfee Antivirus is much more effective for the online users.
