|I tried to remove Windows Defender, thought I accomplished it number times. I have a Dell at home. (PC) and a HD Mac at work.... Windows defender and all their BS with weird files we don't understand... Everyone has start up problems.. You have to have a virus protection program like norton or better. But Macs are the way to go if you wanna stay virus free. Windows has to be in on it with the anti virus companies + all the hackers if they don't send out "their own" SchuDaddy|
