Windows Defender

Now that I'm using Windows Vista Business, I am using the included Windows
Defender program.

What does Windows Defender defend against?

Spyware and Viruses?

How come it never finds anything?

Regards,

Windows Defender defends your system gains spyware (see
http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/spyware/software/default.mspx ) It
is 'not' an anti virus application, so if your system doesn't have anti
virus software installed I suggest you install one pretty quickly. Some good
'free' anti virus applications are ; AVG Anti Virus
(http://free.grisoft.com) and Avast (http://www.avast.com)
