    It has been a known fact ever since they were released that they don't perform very good. With so many free antivirus programs nowadays I don't see why anyone would even think about using those two from Microsoft.

    Maybe people should read more :

    "AV-TEST therefore decided to investigate the extent to which the use
    of an additional Internet security
    package can increase the basic
    protection provided by Windows 8
    even further. The results of the test
    show that combining the Windows 8
    package with another software suite
    significantly increases the average
    security of the system.
    Markus Selinger
    Windows 8 features a complete
    security package formed from
    Windows Defender and other system tools such
    as the Windows Firewall and filter in Internet
    Explorer. This basic package was not amended
    or deactivated in the AV-TEST study. The
    Internet Explorer SmartScreen Filter also
    remained constantly activated throughout the
    test unless explicitly deactivated by a security
    product"

    Rootkit, FTL !!! They're like luggage, you can hardly ever force yourself to get rid of them. & some can eat backups for lunch--recycle! (where's that evil smiley when you need one?!)
