Windows Defender is a free program with no paid-for upgrades, while Avast provides a complete set of antivirus products that include a limited freemium option.

I just saw one comparison between them here https://www.reviewsed.com/windows-defender-vs-avast/

I am a bit confuse now as Avast is more compact but windows is better in terms of free package. right?

Avast is a privacy risk and doesnt have a good detection ratio at all, Norton has very good protection against malware, but is quite resource hungry and will slow down your computer if its a laptop or a low end desktop, Windows defender, altough seemingly having recieved the best av award, is not true, and cant protect you against all kinds of malware, I would go with Norton in this regard.

You can also check NPAV. Runs scheduled scan every day and it can be customized as well.

That is on the grounds that your mouth is away from drugs right now. Be that as it may, the new cluster of filthy medication filled spit is beginning to trickle in your mouth and in about thirty minutes the entire of your gums will be secured with test-positive salivation.

I am using avast for a long time and it is very light and does not put me in any difficult situation. Avast is compatible with any software. Macfee on the other hand causes problems with different software. So in that case as windows defender is not that safe as it cannot protect you from all kind of viruses so you can use Avast.

Are you sure?, cause I am using Avast for a very long time and this is the first time that I am seeing that avast has privacy issue. What kind of privacy issue are you talking about?, do they have access to our hard drive?. How is it even possible?. Please let me know as if your are right then I will not use avast anymore.
