I had the exact same versions as you. Since uninstalling and letting it revert to Defender and the standard Windows firewall, I have had no outages so far.

​,

                      They are having issues with the 14.0.R12 Version/Build and are in the process of a (Fix). In addition the latter part of March the latest new (LAM) Version/Build 15.0R0/15.1.156 will once again begin to be slowly throttled out.

                        I have been running it without any issues whatsoever, as I obtained it back in October before they began *enhancing* Improving the (New) installer.  FAQs for light weight Antimalware (LAM

I might add also, the reason I placed this discussion in the *Vulnerability Scanner* area, is your screenshot was indicative that it was the culprit for your updates/issues.

Got the problem for the 3rd time, had to uninstall McAfee as 2 restarts did not help.
Waiting for an update here when the issue is solved.

Is Windows defender enough secure till then ?

Thanks.

What OS are you running? In Windows 10 it has Anti-Virus capabilities as well,unlike the prior versions. Having said this, it is my opinion that in comparison to your McAfee software. McAfee provides and offers far more protection.

Especially given the fact that Microsoft failed to provide/release their *Monthly* updates yesterday for the month of February. Which we are still left hanging, not knowing when they will release them. Due to a last minute glitch.

I would suggest to either install the *McAfee Cloud AV*, or install the *Consumer Beta Product* until this issue is rectified. The Consumer Beta is actually the 15.0R0/15.1.156 (Lam) if of course the (New) installer has been fixed.

Perhaps my Colleague Ex_Brit could further expand on the *McAfee Cloud AV* as he is a Moderator/administrator there.

Thanks for the reply.

From where should I download the Consumer Beta Product?

BTW I use Windows 10.

Either one will suffice and is far more superior that the basic *Windows Defender* , in my honest opinion. I will ask ​ to chime in. The only hindrance on Consumer Beta, is if the New Installer is still being enhanced?

I've sent you an invitation to join the private Consumer Beta Group.
