Download the new version of Windows Defender


We’ve gotten a lot of comments about the confusing “Windows Defender has expired” message. Even my dad—who has been in the computer industry for 30 years—got confused by it. The Security Tips & Talk blog has the information you need about downloading the latest version of Windows Defender, where to find support, and what to do if you’re still having problems with it. Visit their Download the new version of Windows Defender post.

    Found this to be excellent for the way it identifies spyware from most sites visited

    I found that Windows Defender doesn’t detect tracking cookies and also some spyware that Norton Symantec online scanner and Computer Associates online scanner detect.  I have sent these malware as per the guidance posted on Windows Defender page to Microsoft but I find that Microsoft hasn’t come up with a patch for anyone of them.

    I hope Microsoft will look into this matter and take appropriate action.

    I just installed the latest French version of Windows Defender, and I have to say it contains a (over) localization issue.

    The registry key used to automatically launch Windows Defender contains "-masquer" as an argument instead of "-hide". Which causes the Windows Defender to be openned every time the computer starts.

    I didn’t know there was a new version.
