Two different programs, is Security essentials and windows defender? They collide

Yes, 2 different applications. Defender is anti-spyware only and Security Essentials has antispyware and antivirus. Windows Defender is useless if you use Microsoft Security Essentials, given that the built-in anti-spyware component and allows you to disable Windows Defender by design.

  • Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Defender works not together

    I've recently switched to Microsoft Security Essentials, I it works on Windows Vista, but now Windows Defender is turned off.  If I try to 'start' Defender window freezes and it keeps just who goes back to the window where I would start from.  These two programs are not compatible?

    Microsoft Security Essentials has its own integrated version of the defender and it automatically disables the version of Vista in Windows Defender.

  • MS Security Essentials and Windows Defender

    Is pat MS Security Essentials Windows Defender?  I plan to uninstall my current antivirus and Security essentials installation to see if it has less impact on the performance of the system.  I disabled Windows Defender, based on the recommendation of Windows to have only 1 race AV.  The computer I'm using has only 1 GB of memory.  I also use Ready Boost.

    Yes, Security Essentials has its own component antimalware software. In my view, that it will disable WD when you install MSSE. WD is not an antivirus but MSSE includes a component antivirus. If possible, consider adding at least 1 GB of RAM and you will see an improvement in net performance. I buy my RAM from Crucial . MS - MVP - Elephant Boy computers - don't panic!

    Hello, just to be sure I have the correct information, Windows Defender lights not in Windows Vista with Microsoft Security Essentials, as Essentials has its own version of the Defender.  The error code I received is the same as the previous posts in which is: 0x800106ba.  Again, just to be sure, I understand, I should stop trying to turn Defender because Security Essentials has covered it, okay?

    Q: is - this installation of Microsoft Security Essentials (XP/Vista/7) disable Windows Defender?
    A:
    Microsoft Security Essentials should disable Windows Defender in Vista and Windows 7, and then uninstall it from XP. In some cases, this does not happen automatically.
     

    Q: what happens if I do not disable or uninstall Windows Defender, if I use Microsoft Security Essentials (XP/Vista/7)?
    A: If Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Defender are both running, your system can know the performance degradation and other problems caused by the conflict of two services providing real-time protection at the same time.

  • Disabled the HTTPS option in Hotmail and problems with the Windows Firewall, Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows updates.

    Original title: Windows Live Hotmail only opens a new window links e-mail composition!

    I recently put my Windows Live Hotmail account to my default e-mail client in Internet Explorer 8 on my Windows XP SP3 System. Unfortunately, whenever I click on a link to e-mail on a Web page to open a new message, Hotmail tells me, "Sorry, there seems to be a problem with Hotmail right now", and a new/compose message window does not open. I disabled the HTTPS option in Hotmail, which fixed the problem. However, when I went to do a manual update of Windows, I am nailed with a Trojan horse! Apparently, the Windows Firewall and Microsoft Security Essentials have been affected by turning off HTTPS in Hotmail! It's 2012, and it's terribly disappointing that Microsoft only has not ironed out all the imperfections in these services now. If anyone can give me a solution (in simple terms), I would appreciate it!

    Thank you

  • Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Dedender

    can someone tell me if I can use Windows Defender with Microsoft Security essentials

    Ah, I was wrong. Although the version linked to this article is from 2007 and as such is probably much obsolete. In any case, as you pointed out, they cannot work together and Security Essentials outperforms it far in the protection against threats.

  • Microsoft Security Essentials replaces Windows Defender and what is the difference?

    Microsoft Security Essentials has a download of much larger definitions (45 MB) Windows Defender (about 13 MB). That means more MSE WD do? The current definitions of MSE download contains the same version of engine 1.1.5502.0 as the current update of WD. How about a link to MS site to learn what MSE; In addition, compared to the WD curiously enough, can not find such a link on the MSE sites.

  • After using windows for some time Defender, I am now trying microsoft "security essentials". My question is what is the best? Security Essentials or Windows Defender.

    • Error messages
    • Recent changes to your computer
    • What you have already tried to solve the problem

    For all my other security I use norton 360 v 4.

    DO NOT RUN MSE AND NORTON AT THE SAME TIME!

    You will crash your PC often and it will become very slow.
