  • Yes, OneCare includes the core scanning components of Defender, so it disables the copy of Defender already on the PC to avoid a conflict. Simply leave Defender turned off and OneCare will monitor for spyware. If you wish to learn more there is a post at the top of the Anti-Spyware forum that explains it more completely.

    I'm moving your post to the Anti-Spyware forum, since it's not an off topic question.

  • Thanks so much for you reply!

    I just switched to Vista with Windows One Care and wanted to make sure ALL was secure!
