Windows 7 + Windows Defender + AIS
« on: February 20, 2010, 09:04:40 PM »
I'm receiving, in some boots, the information that there is no antispyware protection and that I should enable Windows Defender.
When I open avast interface, mail shield, web shield and the antispam are starting, but the resident shield is no.

1. Is there a way to correct this message?
2. Is there a way to delay the Windows 7 checking for the antispyware protection a lit bit longer?
3. Is there a way to uninstall Windows Defender?

FWIW, Tech, I'm running Win7x64 with Avast5 AV free ed and disabled/stopped Win Defender in Start, Admin Tools, Services.  My Action Center shows "Multiple antispyware report they are turned on" listing out Avast-on, Comodo-on and Windows Defender-off.  I never get the message about no antispyware you mention.   I turned off Defender because I just assumed there might be conflicts when I installed the new Avast5 with built in antispyware.  I know some say you can run the two concurrently but I just don't like to run two realtime AS's concurrently.

Did you try a reinstall of avast! ? Maybe you could try FixWin(have a look at the system tools section) and try the action center fix before you try a reinstall. Could help, i don't know, action center detecting avast! just fine over here. Give it a shot.

Darth, WSC is detecting avast correctly... the problem is on timing... it detects no antispyware some seconds before ::)

It's still worth a shot trying to reset the wsc. The way i see it you've got nothing to loose.

Hi Tech  :)

If I was you I'd try a clean install of - Avast 5

Vista

You can't actually uninstall Windows Defender  :(

However!
You can switch.. Windows Defender - OFF

Can't Remember Completely  ::)
But...
1) Open Windows Defender
2) Look For It's - Settings ..  Options - or - Tools .. Something Like That!
Then... Look To - Untick!
3) Real Time Protection ( This would leave you still receiving Windows Defender updates and On Demand scans )
And Also Maybe... Untick!
4) Use Windows Defender ( Windows Defender .. Knocked Out Cold )  ;D
5) Remember To Click.. Save - Apply - OK ... Whatever!

Tip!
When you get into the - Windows Defender Settings .. It might first appear as though there are only a few  ???
Look at the side of the window... You Can Scroll Down!  
And it's only then you will find loads of settings for Windows Defender  :D


Note!
I still use Windows Defender along with Avast 5 .. No Problem!  ;)

Tech is your wsc service set to automatic(delayed start) or something else ? This is how it looks like on my machine.

Automatic (delayed start).
I've removed the repository and will boot now.

Let's hope resetting the repository will do the trick. Let us know.

No luck... Windows complains about not having antispyware protection.
I've lost the recognition... :'(
