No malware or spyware there. It is a ver bad installation. My first choice , if this is a retail purchase, would be to take it back and tell them to sort it! Otherwise, if you have purchased from a private sale, then it looks as if, for some reason, the programs referred to have been removed.
1. Windows Defender is part of Vista. Corrupt install'
2. Flashcards is a freeware program. Apparently a bad path or removed. T
3. Smoothview is also a freeware program, It has been removed or has a bad path.
4. Power save is another third party software program.TBS is part of it. Apparently it has been removed or has a bad path.
You can uninstall the last three, through the control panel/Programs. Defender is a bit of a harder problem. You could temporarily disable it, also through the control panel. There may be an easier way, but to reinstall may need a complete Vista reinstall. Otherwise, for the defender option only, run the repair option on the install DVD.
There may be a third party way to reinstall it, which another reader might help you with.
