Free Tools - Windows Defender

24 July 2009

Windows Defender is included within Windows Vista and can be found by clicking “Start” on your taskbar and then clicking “All programs” and it's somewhere near the top.

Windows Defender by default runs in the background, however this can be turned off.

Windows Defender, again, is an anti spyware application.

If you're not running Windows Vista then you can also download Windows Defender for “Windows XP Service Pack 2” from www.download.com/Microsoft-Windows-Defender/3000-8022_4-55082.html?tag=mncol

If Windows Defender is not running in the background then it is worth running once a month as this will minimise any risks to your computer.

Upon opening the application search for updates and then run a full scan.
