    Exclamation MS Windows Security Essentials

    If you use MS Windows Security Essential for antivirus protection and their malware program

    Win7 64Bit will automatically disable Windows Defender

    It has a note that state Windows Defender is being shutdown because two real time malware programs are troublesome...so it is disabling windows Defender
    ================================================
    Added:Edit:5March
    Microsoft Security Essentials should disable Windows Defender on Vista and Windows 7 and uninstall it from XP.

    1 Anti Virus can run.

    1 Real time spyware scanner can run. Windows Denfender is a Spyware scanner.

    The reason Microsoft Security Essentials turns off Windows Defender is because it includes viruses & spyware protection.

    More info...click link below:

    Windows Defender and Microsoft Security Essentials


    Windows Defender detects and removes known spyware only. It is not designed to protect against the full breadth of malicious software, and specifically does not prevent viruses, worms, Trojans, and other malicious software from infecting your machine. The new no-cost solution will be a comprehensive anti-malware solution.

    Q: Does installing Microsoft Security Essentials disable Windows Defender
    A: Microsoft Security Essentials should disable Windows Defender on Vista and Windows 7 and uninstall it from XP.
    In some cases, this does not happen automatically.
    Q: What happens if I do not disable or uninstall Windows Defender if I am using Microsoft Security Essentials?
    A: If Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Defender are both running, your system may experience performance degradation and other problems caused by the conflict of two services providing real time protection simultaneously.

    Watch videos to help you get the most from Microsoft Security Essentials.

    There are no plans that I am aware of to support XP 64 bit...but it will support WinXP32 bit @ this time...and of course Vista and Win7 too
