By definition, window-8' app that using that 'SDK' must be labeled as ADWare, for it behave not much different than exisiting adware.

Of the freeware I use in my virtual machines is Comodo Internet Security, it's good but takes time to play with its settings to lower user interaction to a minimum. No blue screens either. One drawback is it doesn't update AV defs as often as for example Eset does.

For my work PCs, though, I use Norton 360 or Norton Internet Security. However, I'm sticking with the pre-2012 versions of the software. I made the mistake of "upgrading" Norton 360 on my (Vista) laptop to version 6, and it's been Metrofied into big ugly squares with a kindergarten look. Also, the malware scan functions have been split from the PC maintenance functions, which means that now I can't just tell it to do everything in one session and leave it overnight.

scrolling through the Explorer is nearly impossible, because of Defender.
I've removed the crap with this tool:

sorry, but that's bul*****!
This issue would be with any antivirus-software, porbably much more by using other scanners.
Please take a look at av-Comparitives there is al listing of the most antivirus-tools and a performance test...read this and talk on...
Defender has one of the best performance of all testes antivirus-tools, but detection-rate is really bad.

but detection-rate is really bad.
Isn't that an oxymoron?
can i read that as: "Defender perform well that it allow many virus(ii/es ,whatever float your boat) to slips into your system" ?

No it isn't.
For most of all Defender affords enough security.
But if you often click on files like "big_tits.exe" or on Warez-Sites "Crack_all.exe" it could be useful to use another antivirus-tool.

each icon in explorer opens with a 2 sec delay.
Good to see that your test shows that my NOD32 is better in performance. Be happy with your your crappy MSE/Defender and is terrible detection rate
