I’m running Windows 7, as well as a malware cleaner called Hitman Pro. But lately, Ive been getting slow response times on my Firefox browsers, which have had me rebooting the system more frequently than I would prefer. And Hitman Pro, when it runs scans, doesn’t come up with anything more threatening than the fact that I’m getting cookies from every site I visit.
Also lately, the system as begun asking me if I wish to activate Windows Defender. Somehow I got the notion that relying upon (or even using) Microsoft’s built-in tools and utilities is a bad idea.
Should I go ahead and activate it, or should I look for something more effective?
