Should I use Windows Defender if I use MSE? RRS feed

  • Question

  • My OneCare sub expires soon.  If I begin using MSE should I also use Windows Defender or will MSE cover it?

    TIA

  • MSE has the protection of Defender, just as OneCare does. MSE includes antivirus and antispyware and should be removed from XP and disabled in Vista or Windows 7 when MSE is installed.
