3.) Why is there no Microsoft Security Essentials on Windows 12, 11 and 10?
Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) was a free antivirus software from Microsoft that was built into older versions of Windows such as Windows 7 and Windows Vista. However, this antivirus software has been discontinued and replaced by Windows Defender.
Windows 10, 11 and 12 have Windows Defender as a built-in antivirus solution. Windows Defender provides comprehensive protection against viruses, malware, spyware, and other threats to your system. Microsoft has continually developed and updated Windows Defender to ensure it can detect and combat current threats. For this reason, Microsoft has decided to discontinue Microsoft Security Essentials in newer versions of Windows.
Windows Defender not only provides basic protection, but is also able to detect and block threats in real time. To ensure it is always up to date, updates are released regularly.
If you are using Windows operating system versions 10, 11, or 12, we recommend keeping Windows Defender enabled to protect your computer from threats. You can also install additional third-party security software if you want additional features or have specific requirements. However, Windows Defender already offers solid basic protection.
