i d/loaded this the other day and came up clean, my question is the old anti spyware had an icon in the system tray which would have seemed to indicate was running in the background (or have i got that wrong) there is no icon with defender so am i protected real time or not?

yep, the idea is.. it's hidden out of sight just running like a background process doing it's thing and protecting you.

Go to start, all programs. It's there. I just copied a shortcut of it to the desktop.

I read in another thread that the icon only appears when something is detected that requires your attention. I am not familiar with it myself. Hope this helps.
