Sorry nothing has worked. I am out of ideas, also. Were you able to defrag your harddrive?
If you have Spybot Search and Destroy with TeaTimer enabled, it is almost the same as Defender. I would also suggest to install Spyware Blaster. One Antivirus and a good firewall such as Zone alarm free.
AdAware Free is also a good program to keep on your comp.
With the programs listed above and good surfing habits you should have no problem. Most get into trouble with clicking links in emails and visiting unsafe sites. Another suggestion I would make is to use another browser other than IE. Firefox with NoScript extension will keep you from getting hit in a driveby on the web.
Maybe someone else will come up with an answer to why you can't install Defender.
