Optimize Windows 7

Windows 7 tips and tricksAlways looking to optimize Windows 7, I have another tip for you. Many Windows computers in Germany have a free or paid antivirus program installed, but most of them do not know which malware program the antivirus program protects against. The often installed free applications already protect well against spyware. You can find out which antivirus programs are popular with our readers in our survey. What kind of antivirus do you use?  On the following website, Microsoft describes how to use Windows Defender to combat spyware in particular. - Windows Defender - The detection and removal of spyware will be better with Windows Defender according to Microsoft. The question of whether Windows Defender is really better remains open! The de facto is that two pest control programs are unnecessary and only slow down the system.


Windows Defender is automatically active and is preinstalled by Microsoft. To release system resources, you can use the Turn off Windows Defender.

Start> Windows Defender and Enter

In the Windows Defender window click on Tools and then on Options.


Remove the following tick in the options.

Automatic check at Automatically check computer (recommended)

Administrator at Use this program



You should only deactivate Windows Defender if you have installed other appropriate programs, such as Avira AntiVirus.
