Defender-no new defs


G

Gazza B

Useful discussion group - & my 1st post! Every time I boot up, Windows
security alert tells me Defender is out of date but when I try to update I
receive message that there are no new definitions available. OS is Vista HP
+SP1; also running AVG antivirus + Lavasoft ad-aware (both free versions). I
cannot d/load latest version of Defender from M/soft coz message tells me
this s/ware is already preinstalled, and I cannot disable or uninstall
Defender from my h/drive (what is the point of being obliged to keep
something which is not working properly so you can replace it with something
that is?!) Any advice much appreciated. Gazza.
