    What about the second component of Windows Defender, the firewall? I am currently using Glasswire, I honestly never look at, and it never has reported anything suspicious. I would like to free up the resources that it uses. Can I do away with it and just use the the Windows Firewall? Is there also a front end gui to help configure it? Thanks again, in advance.

    You lost me. I never said anything about fake news, just trying to get information.

    Wasn't directed to you. I'll fix it so it's clearer.

    Hi there
    What's Fake news about WD being Robust etc. C'mon all you Malwarebytes etc adherents -- what do they report that WD hasn't detected -- plenty of "Fake News" and other types of remarks -- but nobody has still answered the basic question yet !!!!!!

    Cheers
