(MS Defender/Spyware Tool )<br><br><br><br>
BASCILY: (was included updates which get sent by MS to my PC and I check out whats in the list at my discretion)<br><br><br><br>
tis a tool updated once monthly innit? ... so I read on my custom self update screen in the small detail of each thing in the list and not for the first time I see Defender/Spyware Tool in among them on offer for download...<br><br><br><br>
(yeh I could check out the full page of info but don't necessarily have time to check it out fully myself... Who the hell does.)<br><br><br><br>
should I use it? is it safe? reliable, worth the bother?<br><br><br><br><b>note:</b> I am getting kinda better with downloading as I probably should most of my sent updates, and crap, but I manually have MS-updates decided upon by curse of my own liberated eye (generally if I see an update stating a specific purpose good enough to warrant whats its going to be used for on my computer then I generally ok it and download, and accept as important, critical/ whatever as I guess I must) ,, and yah ok, so you see I won't just download anything but am getting better at accepting some updates are unavoidable if not advisable, (whatever the case maybe down to an individuals discretion) but as this tool Defender seems to be quite significant or even over and above the importance of most updates, I just wanna ask what is it to you all, any good?? is it effective do you all find and does it give any trouble?

I like MS Defender. It's a pretty powerful spyware scanner. I discovered that it finds crap that Ad-aware and Spybot S&D misses. Give it a try. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
