One of the major problems of the Windows operating system is the computer virus. Each time a new installation is done, it is essential to integrate an antivirus that avoids most problems that can arrive. Windows Defender is one of the solutions that were already included in the package. Although Microsoft has put the batteries with a new feature: Windows Defender Offline.
The function was removed a few years ago, but has now become more interesting way. Thanks to the latest Insider Builds, we have seen how the original Windows Defender can scan our computer even before start the operating system. In fact, an Internet connection is not necessary. Interesting: right? As well we will be more secure.
To enable this option you only need to go to Windows Defender and click on the “Scan Offline” button. The system will reboot and will begin to scan your computer before the operating system is available to start all the elements. The feature is very important because many viruses are hidden in the boot sectors or in places that can not be detected once the OS has been started.
Mentioning that the analysis equipment lasts approximately 15 minutes, depending on the power of the computer, so that we recommend be patient: not able to use it in all that time frame.
The new feature of Windows Defender Offline is very interesting because it integrates new security measures that diminish the chances that we are infected by a computer virus. We have to wait until it is integrated into the stable versions of Windows 10.
