...Windows 2000 users might want to start looking for alternative protection.

At the RSA Europe conference in Nice, France, Microsoft announced the general availability of Windows Defender for Windows XP users and made it clear that the software will no longer support Windows 2000, which will be out of mainstream life cycle support in October 2006.

Quietman7: Am I understanding correctly, once Window Defender is installed in your system that it cannot be removed?? If you cannot remove it, how do you rid of it from your system? With it being officially GOLD, are there official support forum for WD by MS? Thank you. YOYO. :thumbsup:
