Does Windows Security Essentials work with Windows RT?

Can Microsoft Windows Security Essentials be used with Windows RT?


"No. Windows RT comes with Windows Defender, which has been improved to provide the same level of malware protection as Microsoft Security Essentials.

You do not need to install Microsoft Security Essentials and it will not work with Windows RT. Microsoft will continue to provide and improve Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP."

Well, sort of. It comes with Windows Defender, which essentially takes the place of WSS. So you won’t get Security Essentials in name, but you will as a practical matter.
