Yes, I agree that useage and qualifications are needed for, not just anti virus comparisons, but for most software. Anti virus requirements vary depending on how and what purposes and security level one needs with their device.

Dan, what follows is not a criticism of what you've said, which is 100% accurate, but an addition. Any other product, paid or free (at least potentially), may do better than Windows Security does with a given thing. That's shown time and again in formal tests where each and every major security suite product changes position, often from the last test to the current one, because one of the things tested that's given more weight than others improves in one product while staying the same in others.
See the most recent plus the last several years of historical test results from:
