Antivirus vendor Kaspersky has filed an antitrust complaint with the European Commission against Microsoft. The Russian company argues that Microsoft abuses its dominant position on the market for operating systems, to favor its own Windows Defender.

Kaspersky is right, but why is that wrong, Windows is a Microsoft product, why do they have an issue with Microsoft adding something to a product that they own.?

Called crybaby because my product no longer protects the computer. They either make a good product or stop making it. Sounds like they are loosing and now have no other options but to file antitrust.

I would not use the word ‘crybaby’ on Kaspersky, Defender is absolute garbage compared to Kaspersky security products in terms of protection, they are not even in the same league.

If you want Russian mob and Putin standing behind and watching what your doing go right ahead. It’s called crybaby when you get tossed aside and if it was that good why even worry about Defender. Obviously they have something to fear why else would they do that. You can always load a different A/V if you want to - before Microsoft had a A/V there was nothing but now you have choices take it or leave it. If you believe all those bias test then that is your choice as well. I used MSE and now Defender and so far they are Free of which Kaspersky isn’t free. If you not going to Dark Sites then Defender works just fine. It’s the User whom decides to use the Admin and venture to Dark Sites that cause the infection and gives malware permission to install and to blame the A/V or Defender not working is very short sighted here. Take a good look at the reflection in the mirror and that is whom is doing the infection to start with.

Kaspersky products are still working perfectly, and I will not let anybody telling me what sites I should or should not visit, also it’s nobody else’s business.
This is not the first time Microsoft is trying to abuse with it’s position on the market.
If you think the Russian mob and Putin is watching what porn you watch, you have the right to think that, we all can have our own delusions. Kaspersky is one of the leading security software companies, that’s the only thin I care about.
I am always conscious using any software, most users are not, an Kaspersky products are not made for those users. Thinking and saying that Windows Defender is sufficient for those users instead of ANY ‘proper’ security software is another delusion, and by saying that, you can actually cause problems for other people.

And whom here said you had to use what they used?

Come back again with more coherent response.

I already stated anyone can use anything other then Defender yet you cling on the delusion otherwise.
