    hi, been trying to figure out how to uninstall windows defender because my friend said that its outdated and Microsoft came out with a new defender called Security Essentials
    (i googled microsoft and that was what i was looking for dont know exact name) i cant seem to find it under uninstall programs so is there a place i can uninstall it?

    Microsoft Security Essentials will do it for you. Just install Essentials.

    I've done like 5 installs in the past month. Just install Essentials, it'll take care of Defender by disabling it.

    You can't reallly uninstall windows defender
    thE only way is to disable it when
    you install another anti spyware
