Default Re: Vista Upgrade Question.

Defender is in Vista but I checked with AdawareSE and found a number had gotten by and one of the more malicious type. This was with use for less than one week so I will be checking for spyware with another program from time to time.

Those pRon sites will get you every time.

Defender is new from MS so you can bet it has deficiencies, just like any new MS product. No doubt they'll improve it though. MS is pretty good at turning something that sucks into something good, eventually.

Then again, you can use 3 different spyware utilities and they'll all report something different.
