    Check out the free Malwarebytes Browser Guard extension in the Google store and also Firefox.
    Stops the bad guys in the Browser.

    A simple way to get the most out of Windows Defender is to use ConfigureDefender. It's a GUI application to enable Windows Defender's advanced settings, e.g. Attack Surface Reduction rules, increased cloud protection, etc. See it here: GitHub - AndyFul/ConfigureDefender: Utility for configuring Windows 10 built-in Defender antivirus settings..

    By reading the descriptions and notes in Github this would be over the head of most regular home users. Sounds like a tool for AV Techs and Admins. Not home users. It may work well in qualified hands, but word of caution to regular non-techy users.

    Add that some can't even explain the use of service or app posted should an OP have questions.

    Actually its quite simple, download, open, click on HIGH setting, done. Don't worry about any other settings. All it does is enable "hidden" Defender settings.

    Maybe for someone with some experience it might be simple but anyone who is new to all this will be lost.
    They won't understand what it does or not do, might click on things they shouldn't and cause more problems without realizing it until its too late.

    Everyone has to understand most people join to find easy to understand answers.

    Simply telling someone to "click on HIGH setting, done" is concerning.... Why?

    Agree

    And as I said posting something they don't understand. Basically "somebody" said do this so that's what you do. Fixed
