Anti-malware for Windows 7

Elder daughter, who's a teacher, has just been given a laptop, for school work, by her school.

The OS is W7. I un-installed the trial Norton Security Essentials and installed Avast AV and SpywareBlaster.

As Windows Defender appears to be incompatible with W7 can members recommend a suitable active anti-malware program for W7?

Clapton I would be careful about my altering stuff like that if its still works laptop. As they may not be happy that its being messed with.

My mate works for a school in IT and he would have a fit.

As you have AVast back it up with Malwarebytes free or Superantispyware you will be well covered

I'm apparently missing the point.

I can't find Defender in Start; All Programs or in the Uninstall a Program option.

The odd thing is that Windows Update is offering me a definition update for Defender.

Any any idea where Bill's hidden it in W7??
