I uninstalled Microsoft AntiSpyware Beta 1 with the intent of reinstalling it because the program was not recording previous scans. When I went to the Microsoft download page I found that the Beta 2 version, Windows Defender, was available. I installed it, and it is up and running without any apparent problems, but it did not put an icon in the system tray. Unable to find any relative information, I would like to know if anyone knows whether there is, or is not supposed to be an icon in the system tray.

There is no icon in Beta 2.
Paul Thurrotts Super Site for Windows has a very good article on Windows Defender.
Well worth reading.
If i could remember how to include a link,i would do so.
Do a Google instead.
Regards.
