Likewise, I am relying (shudder) on Microsoft's Windows Defender.

Hi Dave,

Because I have a long distrust of Microsoft products. They earned it beginning with DOS 3.0 or before.
Windows Defender is working well as far as I can tell.

They continually mess with the UI in Office and have made templates much more difficult to use in Word almost since Word 97.

They try hard but they have a big job and the coding on their products has to be a rats nest by now. When they fix one thing, it breaks something else.

About a month ago, I had a Windows update mess up the boot on my hard drive. I'm still stinging from that.

I keep off-site backups, and they are not on the cloud.
