Is Windows Defender in W10 sufficient protection?

310 Views
Last Modified: 2017-03-18
My W10 computers have Malwarebytes Anti-Malware installed as well as Windows Defender.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware repeatedly detects one or more potentially unwanted objects which it signals as "Non-Malware Detected".

Does Windows Defender alone provide sufficient protection for a W10 computer which is kept fully updated?

If so I could limit Malwarebytes Anti-Malware  to occasional scans instead of routine scans daily at startup.

Experts please, your advice.
