Windows Defender RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently signed up to Windows Live OneCare, now when I log on to my computer I get amessage saying Windows Defender is Off and my computer is at risk. Part of the message asks if I want to turn on and see Windows Defender to click on a link, but when I do, I receive an Error Message 0x800705b4 and if I persist in using the link I'm informed that I've timed out. I am so used to using Windows Defender I feel lost and exposed! CAN ANYONE PLEASE HELP ME!!!!

  • Windows OneCare includes a more robust antispyware component.  It turns off the default Windows Defender to avoid conflicts.  You have nothing to worry about.
