Yes, very hilarious, but actually true. MSE isn't compatible with Windowstoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
10, hence the default installation of Windows Defender in the new OS.
However, your original message said you were upgrading to 1607, but did not
say you already had Win 10 installed and were doing a manual upgrade of
something that would have upgraded via Windows Update anyways. I assumed,
therefore, that you were upgrading from a previous version which could have
used MSE and, as with my example, actually happened under that scenario.
You do have Windows Defender installed and protecting your system, and if
you look in the 'notifications' you should see the message 'PC Status:
Protected' which means your system is being protected. That is Windows

In the following, I'm not bashing you, or anyone, for that matter, but
email being what it is, its tone could be misconstrued.
Think about this: Microsoft wants to upgrade your operating system.
Microsoft is what the "M" in "MSE" stands for. Now here's the
head-scratcher: Why, or how, would Microsoft Security Essentials get
in the way of upgrading a Microsoft product? That's MS getting in its
own way! Do you not find that absolutely hillariously uproariously
funny? I sure do!
In fact, I don't even know that I *do* have MSE, or Defender, or
whatever it's called in Windows 10, installed. I haven't gotten any
notices that I'm unprotected, so I must have something, but whatever
it is didn't hinder my update.
