NB Productions Your guide on the Web since 2000 FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)



Category: Main -> Windows Defender and Microsoft Security Essentials

Question
·   How is this different from Windows Defender?
·  Is Microsoft Security Essentials designed to replace Windows Defender?
·  Does installing Microsoft Security Essentials disable Windows Defender
·  Do I need to manually disable or uninstall Windows Defender if I am using Microsoft Security Essentials?
·   What happens if I do not disable or uninstall Windows Defender if I am using Microsoft Security Essentials?

Answer
·   How is this different from Windows Defender?

Windows Defender detects and removes known spyware only. It is not designed to protect against the full breadth of malicious software, and specifically does not prevent viruses, worms, Trojans, and other malicious software from infecting your machine. The new no-cost solution will be a comprehensive anti-malware solution.

·  Is Microsoft Security Essentials designed to replace Windows Defender?

No but if you are running Microsoft Security Essentials, you do not need to run Windows Defender. Microsoft Security Essentials is designed to disable Windows Defender in order to manage the PC’s real-time protection, including anti-virus, rootkits, Trojans and spyware.

·  Does installing Microsoft Security Essentials disable Windows Defender

Microsoft Security Essentials should disable Windows Defender on Vista and Windows 7 and uninstall it from XP. In some cases, this does not happen automatically.

·  Do I need to manually disable or uninstall Windows Defender if I am using Microsoft Security Essentials?

If Microsoft Security Essentials did not automatically disable Windows Defender on Vista or Windows 7, you should disable it to prevent conflicts. Windows Defender cannot be uninstalled from Vista or Windows 7.
If Microsoft Security Essentials did not automatically uninstall Windows Defender on XP, you should manually uninstall Windows Defender via Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs.

·   What happens if I do not disable or uninstall Windows Defender if I am using Microsoft Security Essentials?

 If Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Defender are both running, your system may experience performance degradation and other problems caused by the conflict of two services providing real time protection simultaneously.

Since Windows Defender is installed with the operating system for both Windows Vista and Windows 7, it will be patched with the operating system regardless of whether it is enabled or not, especially since it will be automatically re-enabled if MSE is later uninstalled.

With Windows XP, the situation is different, so in that case you may wish to remove Windows Defender completely before installing MSE.  However, it should still be disabled and having it there as a backup if MSE is uninstalled might still be valuable.
