We have some good news for those that like to keep their PC updated with the latest security checks in the ongoing fight against dangerous viruses and malware.

A new Windows 10 update for Windows Defender has become available for February 2016, adding the latest malware protection for Microsoft’s Malicious Software Removal Tool.

This works hand-in-hand with Windows Defender and in case you weren’t aware, the free software receives a new definition update at the start of every month offering the latest protections.
