windows 7 64 and windows defender
Windows Defender appears to operate normally but when I attempt to modernize definitions it just ‘searches’ and never finds them. I give up after 20 minutes or so. Updates worked until 4 weeks ago.
The Windows Defender that is included on Windows 7 is an antispyware program only that is characteristically disabled by the installation of many antivirus programs to include Microsoft Security Essentials.
What antivirus program are you using?
Any problems with Windows Updates?
