Today i thought i would browse around and read up on some Windows Defender topics, i know its part of windows vista but its also available for download on Windows XP...

Has anyone tried it yet and if so, what do you think of it for a FREE tool?

I got vista and its updated every day - but I cant really say that I have seen it do anything at all (except bugging for updates).

Never had a problem with it. It just runs in the background.

No problems, dunno what it does tho, some kind of ad-ware scanning?

Also it updates more often than Omen.
