Note that windows defender is suppose to be anti-spyware and malware.Yes, it has expanded beyond strict anti-virus into a full-featured security suite. I believe there are even some measures against ransomware, too. That being said, I keep a separate antimalware scanner on my computers "just in case" as they do a better job with that class of infection, just like adware removers do with adware, than any general purpose security suite does.
I haven't had an infection of any sort for, literally, at least 2 decades now, but am forearmed just in case.
For those who want to review third-party antivirus testing lab results, which always include Windows Defender/Windows Security in their tests, see the most recent plus the last several years of historical test results from:
SE Labs (Reports Page)
MRG Effitas (360 Protection Testing Category)

Most of the change we think we see in life is due to truths being in and out of favor.
