Noticed on Troubleshooting info page that there are fields for Antivirus, Antispyware and Firewall. I am using the built in Windows components and wondered about their significance, since MS products don't show up.

(I don't see that on my end, in 74. Probably cause I'm on Win7. Had I been on Win10, where that nonsense is important ;-).)

Thanks. Some 20 minutes after posting and rebooting, both Windows Defender Antivirus and the Windows Firewall are listed.
