Windows 7, Defender keeps turning OFF!


Malcolm H

Since installing Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) I have noticed that
Windows Defender (WD) is turned OFF after computer startup. If I then turn
it ON it seems to remain ON for a while but afer a re-start it is OFF again.
Questions as follows:
1. Does MSE provide all necessary protection thus making WD redundant?
2. Are MSE and WD designed to co-exist?
3. If the answer to 2. is YES, what is the fix?

Bill Sanderson

1) YES
2) sort of--but Windows Defender should be disabled when Microsoft Security
Essentials is running.
