What about Windows Defender 2.

Also can the addon not be a MSI Installer because for some reason they never work with me.

I checked out the link

[Release] Windows Defender from RogueSpear

but no longer hosts Windows Defender on exe. What am I gonna do. I can't use MSIs.

I thought I heard (not sure if it's true or not) that WGA is required and some other stuff to get Windows Defender Beta2 Installation to work. If I have to install spyware to get a antivirus no way.

There was something else which was weird. I went to walmart and Microsoft Onecare is for sale and guess what they included "Antispyware". So maybe they want us to purchase OneCare by forcing WGA so if we don't want it we will have to pay for OneCare.

Compared to all the other spyware/malware removal tools such as S&D, HijackThis and the others. How much better is Defender??

Thanks

i have a feeling it will eventually expire, but ill keep using it till its done. then move on to whatever is next i guess.

i believe using the /qn switch bypasses wga.

example:

msiexec /i WindowsDefender.msi /qn

Even if you bypass WGA during installation, it will still check it to download updates.
