Windows Defender Problem

I've had Windows Defender on for a week or two and thought it was ok. Today however when I did a full scan I couldn't access my Outlook Express. Performed a few more scans and, after each one my e-mails froze. I've uninstalled it now. Anyone else had problems with it?

Yes. Since the kb915597 update defender was unable to update anything! Reverted back to being 92 days out of date. Have uninstalled this time for a good while. By the way any success at uninstalling that game of yours?

Morning Rdave and thanks for reply. I think Plasmapong's gone,typed the name into "Search" and "All files and folders", found 18 so I deleted them. Next time I looked, some had returned....deleted again and, although it said clear, this morning there were 5 there listed as "Chunks jsp?ipid cdocuments and settings". I've just deleted them and at the moment it states clear. I'm a little concerned that I may have deleted something I shouldn't have. Could that have been possible?

Shouldn't think so but maybe a good idea to run the reg cleaner in Ccleaner.

Ok, will do....I'm off to work now, I'll do it when I return tonight. Thanks mate.
