In cojunction with regular online scans this is a good enough protection.
On my PC I have Comodo Firewall, Avast AntiVirus, SpyBot S&D, AdAware, AVG Anti Spyware, Spyware Blaster and Windows Defender installed and up to date and used regularly. I also use the Windows LiveOneCare link now and then.
In WD under Toolsw options did you tick "real time protection"?
Another thing I installed Windows Defender and ran a quick check which found nothing. Now apart from the program icon on my desktop and which I will usually put in my programs folder there is no shortcut on either my desktop or on the taskbar to tell me WD is on my PC. Is this normal and does Windows Defender just run invisibly in the background?.
Running 2 virus scanners at the same time causes more problems, especially when you have the real time protection on.
Browsing on this site yesterday I got a link to the above mentioned A squared Anti Malware free 30 day trial and downloaded it. I went to install it this morning and during the process I was asked "before continuing turn off all other applications". does this mean to turn off my Firewall, Avast Anti-virus, and all my real time applications such as Windows Defender,SpyBot Tea timer, Start Up monitor and ATI Catalyst Control Centre. I cancelled the installation process until I checked this out.
