I am ahving a problem updating windows defender definitions, I run xp home sp2, have deleted and reinstalled but still get the same problem, I don't know if it will fix it if I update to Internet Explorer 7, but really don't want to install that version, anybody have an idea where I can start or should I just delete forever???????????
where, almost certainly, someone will be able to help.
Windows XP Home SP2; AVG 7.5 Internet Security Suite (AV/AS r.t.p, and firewall); Windows Defender (r.t.p on); SuperAntispyware Free; a-squared Free 220.127.116.11; Spybot 1.4 (Immunised, but no Tea-timer); AdAware SE Free; AVG Anti-Rootkit Free; Spywareblaster; MVPS Hosts file (with HostsMan); McAfee Site Advisor.
If you want to replace it, I can suggest some free program combinations that I consider better than Defender. Such as Spybot with teatimer enabled, Spyware Blaster and Super Antispyware free for the home user.
I don't think updating to IE7 will help. Using Firefox with NoScript extension is the safest way to go.
