The purpose of this module is to verify that you have protected your computer: the presence of an antivirus, a firewall, etc. It's a good idea. If a problem happens on one of your software, it should notify you, and it's up to you to fix the problem with Windows built-in help, or fix it on your own.

Except that this module is not infallible. He doesn't recognize all the security solutions you can install on his computer. You may be alarmed by Windows 10 that your computer is not fully secure. While it is the opposite.

Be aware that Windows 10 integrates its own security solutions like Windows Defender for the antiviral solution and Windows Firewall for the firewall solution. These two solutions are well established in Windows. These are not easily deactivated, and as a result, can lead to conflict with third-party protection solutions.
