  • Uninstalled Defender from Vista and cannot reinstall

    I upgraded my system from XP SP2 to Vista recently and experienced continual errors when trying to update Defender. Without putting much thought into it I uninstalled Defender and tried to reinstall. When trying to reinstall, the manager simple says that Defender is part of Vista and cannot be installed.

    I was able to find other similar post for Defender Beta with XP but none for Defender in Vista. Has anyone else experienced this and if so found a fix?

    I am not running OneCare which seemed to be an issue for others.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Using google and words from your own post reveals the following results

    From a very quick read i gather defender is now an integrated component within Windows Vista and does not require that it be installed? When i get a moment i'll do a little more detailed research just to confirm.
