Windows Defender is a security technology that helps protect Windows users from spyware and other potentially unwanted software. Known spyware on your PC can be detected and removed. This helps reduce negative effects caused by spyware including slow PC performance, annoying pop-up ads, unwanted changes to Internet settings, and unauthorized use of your private information. Continuous protection improves Internet browsing safety by guarding over 50 ways spyware can enter your PC.
The worldwide SpyNet community plays a key role in determining which suspicious programs are classified as spyware. Microsoft researchers quickly develop methods to counteract these threats, which are automatically downloaded to your PC, so you stay up-to-date.
- Note If you have version 1.1.1592.0, you must first manually uninstall Windows Defender before you can install this newer version. To configure or remove the existing version, use Add/Remove programs in the Control Panel.

Excellent program that works unobtrusively in the background, updates automatically, includes real time protection and is completely free.

I used Defender early on in XP, never found one thing. Now 1 1/2 months later in Vista, still the same, never finds anything while Webroots Spysweeper is often triggered. I went to edit a photo using Windows Photo Gallery and immediately Spysweeper prompted me of an embedded trojan, Windows Defender, not a peep. I use Defender for the Software Explorer under Tools. Nice feature, I give it a 3 for that.
