►Windows Defender works with Internet Explorer 7 to help you make conscious choices about software installed on your PC by providing always-on protection that monitors key system locations, watching for changes that signal the presence of spyware.

►Superior scanning and removal technologies use up-to-date spyware definitions created by Microsoft, with help from Windows Defender users who submit reports of potential new spyware.

►From installation to maintenance and updates, Windows Defender is simple to use and comes with preconfigured settings and guidance to help you get and stay secure. An improved user interface gives you more control over your software. Common tasks such as scanning, blocking, and removing unwanted software are easier than ever, and a Software Explorer helps you understand which software and services are running on your computer and stops or disables "rogue" software. Windows Defender automatically handles many common tasks and interrupts or alerts you only in the case of serious issues that require immediate action.

►Windows Defender takes advantage of many of the platform enhancements in Windows Vista, including improved caching technology—which allows scans to run faster—and User Account Control, which enables the software to run without administrator privileges.

►Integration with Windows Internet Explorer 7 allows downloaded files to be scanned before they are saved and executed, reducing the chance that spyware might be installed by accident. "Scan on execute" functionality provides an added layer of protection, and integration with Windows Security Center helps you keep track of spyware protection alongside other security and safety features.

►Windows Defender is available for both Windows XP SP2 and Windows Vista. Windows Defender and its associated definition updates are also available on an ongoing basis as free stand-alone downloads for customers using Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, and Windows 2000 who validate their software through the Windows Genuine Advantage program.
