Assuming that by "WinDef" you mean Windows Defender,
I would disagree.
Windows Defender primarily protects a system from spyware/malware.
IE 7 doesn't specifically do that, although IE7 on a Vista system can run in "protected" mode which adds a layer of security to one's system while using IE7. If your "computer guy businessman" didn't make this distinction at the least, then I would say his advice is questionable.
I believe you'll find that most of the folks here would recommend some software anti-spyware program and since none so far are 100% efficient, they'll most likely recommend multiple programs.
Windows Defender is free, so while it may not be the best solution, it is certainly better than none and clearly acceptable as one of these programs, in my opinion.
I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!
