Windows (Personal Devices) - Using Windows Security to Remove Viruses and Malware

This application is included for free with Windows and helps identify and remove viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. Please note that you should only have one antivirus program running at a time. If you are running a third-party antivirus program, Windows Security (previously called Defender) will automatically disable.
