Yes, you can install Windows Defender again.
There should be no conflict. I tried Norton 360 weeks ago with Windows Defender installed.
thanks for the reply Donna, I'll re-install.
Would it be best if I google WD and just download? Or do I need to use Windows Installer first? Do you have any links? Tom.
TYVM Donna. It's working great.
Norton 360 & Windows defender
Yes it will.I suggest remove Norton and run Windows defender from services.msc.Better will be and both will not be required but your purpose will be served if you instal Live one care.Go for free 90 days trial.It will serve both the purpose.Defender will not work,and there will be no need of Norton.
It does not.
No conflict on Windows Defender and Norton products. Even other security suite want to remove another antispyware simply because they think it covers everything. Installing it again is the work-around.
Show us why it conflicts?
Windows defender and Norton
I beg to differ.Updates will not work as it should.Defender brings updates.
I'm sorry but I have Norton 360 right now in a test system
with Windows Defender installed. I see no problem in updating 360 and WD
Norton and WD
Which version of WD? And inform me please if Microsoft update,windows update all are working properly.With me it did not.So I removed,and opted for Live one Care.
Windows Defender versions
Windows Defender Version: 1.1.1505.0 - Vista
Windows Defender Version: 1.1.1593.0 - XP
I have them in each system and I've tried Norton 360 in XP system with WD v1.1.1593.0. No problem in updating Windows, Office, Windows Defender and Norton 360.
MU is working properly too.
defender not working correctly at all
I am interested in your narrative of versions of Defender on xp and vista, I am running Vista Home Premium and Defender that comes with it is either not working or I have no access, all atempts to uninstall have failed, can it be uninstalled from Vista, its not causing me any pain but I like things to do what they say on the tin !
All the best mick
Thank you Donna for that, blimey it was quick.
Thank you Donna I will follow your advice on this, I have run Vista from day 1 and Defender has never worked correctly, any time you open it it tells you it has stopped working and sends an error report, still waiting for a solution, but hey ho I will switch it off now.
All the best
You're welcome Mick!
Tried what you said, and guess what !
error 0x800106ba problem caused program service to stop.
I cant even get into it to do anything, well well, you would think microsoft would at least get their own o s working right.
Thank you for your help Donna, I will try to figure a solution.
All the best Mick
( trying not to lose the plot )
1. Make sure that your system has the correct date, time, year.
2. Open Windows Update from Vista's Start menu and check for updates. Install the updates if there is available.
If the above won't help, I suggest to this:
Start>run then type MSCONFIG
Select 'startup' tab then uncheck "Windows Defender"
Note: This is temporary work-around only.

Known issue in WD but their solution applies to XP only.
I have no conflict running both Norton and Windows Defender
I run both WD and Norton Internet Secutiry suite on Vista with absolutely no conflicts of any kind, and have done so for several months. In fact, I find WD to be quite useful at times.
Just to ask
After all the discussions about Norton 360 and Windows Defender, I would like to ask a specific question:
Will the results (no conflict) be the same if, let's say, I have a Norton 360 in Windows XP and would want to install Windows Defender?
No problem on that setup.
