I uninstalled McAfee security and now use only Windows Defender which says no threats are found every time I do a scan, is it trustworthy?

    Windows Defender on Win 7 was not the greatest. Win 10 has taken protection seriously.  Windows 10 Security (built-in) is on a par w/ some third party vendors.

    While I agree that Microsoft worked long and hard on Defender, many folks would say that McAfee was the superior security product.

    Yes, it is a great antivirus. It is created by Microsoft and you do not use a 3rd party. It is going to say no threats are found 100% of the time unless you are going to bad infected sites.

    David, can you provide current evidence of this?

    No. It is a satisfactory product, but it always ranks low in comparisons with other antivirus products. It's better than nothing, but there are superior products.
