Off Topic - Re: Uninstall Defender after update? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Explain?
    Couldn't find the option in Vista Ultimate or on msn or on msdn.
    This product lacks maturity and interfears.
    Right now, Spybot and AdAware do a far better job.
    This piece of ... is occupyng MY diskspace....

    I've had it with this.

    btw I stopped the service, ok? (And those products I mentioned weren't running on my Vista machine until then)
    But still, how to get rid of it?
    Follow up:
    Hoe do you explain this: (I can have made a mistake) :
    On A clean Vista machine I blocked every program but defender to access the internet. Then I setup a proxy to catch the traffic on my net work, then I disabled the service..
    Guess what happens. Please confirm similar or explain what can be the cause.
    If it weren't so infringing it might look like a scene from batteries not included and it is definitely illegal.

  • I don't really understand your post except the part about wanting to uninstall Defender from Vista. You can't uninstall Defender from Vista but you can, as you have discovered, stop the service.
