Windows Defender antivirus or malware

9 years ago

Usually when I install an anti virus windows defender is automatically turned off. This morning I got a windows update notice for Windows Defender definition. I opened WD, it was on and it kept mentioning stopping malware not viruses. I was curious and googled Windows Defender on W 7 and I came up with the same thing. In Windows 7 forum someone was asking the same question" is it anti virus or malware" one of the techs said it was for malware. Are they just calling viruses malware?
