Vista newbie help
Just installed Windows Vista Business Edition SP1

I installed third party antivirus program Kaspersky

My question is how do I uninstall Windows Defender?

Or how to disable it?

Any ideas or suggestions will be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Tom

Re: Vista newbie help
Why?
Defender is not an AV application

You can't uninstall it, it was built into the OS.

Why do you want to disable? Have you also installed a third-party
anti-spyware/adware application (which Kaspersky AV most definitely is not)?
