Windows Defender provides protection from spyware and other malware. Spyware can make your computer susceptible to pop-ups, slow performance and other security threats. Defender finds and removes known spyware. Its database of known problem programs is updated automatically on a regular basis.
Windows Defender is not a replacement for McAfee's VirusScan. You will need both programs installed on your Windows Vista computer.
