  4. Are the *exact same* programs and software installed on both systems ?

    Please, do NOT post HJT logs here. If you want to post them, do so to a
    Windows Defender forum such as :

    Missing files in HJT are not uncommon.

  5. Hi Gang !
    I am having very similar problems with Windows Defender. Even though I have
    done everything in my power and knowledge to disable it and let my Norton
    Symantec 2008 wall to wall Security program control things, I can't get the
    remaining 8,9 drivers etc., uninstalled. [Windows will NOT let me change
    attributes so I can finish uninstalling Win Def. completely !] : neither as
    an administrator, or even as the creator/owner ? What's up with this ? Norton
    has new definitions, updates every day or at least three times week with
    REAL updated protection. Windows Defender doesn't do anything even close to
    that. All it does is sit there and give my nb's security software problems as
    it attempts to disable/close Norton and open itself as the #1 protector in
    the security heirarchy; hence my decision to get RID of Windows Defender. It
    was great for early XP when WinDef was first released, however it cannot
    handle the vast amount of realtime protection when running VISTA HomePremium
    and MS Office, MS Gallery, etc., which really slow down my dv9548us HP
    notebook. I was going to order 4 g's of RAM but after an honest discussion
    with a REAL American customer rep @ Hewlett-Packard who told me about the 3.5
    g ceiling on usuable RAM for 32 bit systems ,so I did not. I have been
    putting off d/l & installing Win VISTA SP1 update
    up until now hoping that MS would produce a revised version that REALLY
    works and doesn't wreak havoc on other drivers and Windows programs.
    Unfortunately it looks as though MS is pushing VISTA into the curb and
    focusing all their attention on Windows "7". Somebody please tell me that
    downloading and installing SP1 is really a good idea and has made your VISTA
    experience so much better...anyone out there ??"

    Ok Justin,
    I understand your problem, and I can help you fix it, go to Start, Control
    Panel, Make sure control panel is on "classic view" then go to administrative
    tools, then services, find Windows Defender, double click it, make sure the
    startup type is on Automatic, and then press start up windows defender if it
    is off.

    For more help please go to:
