Two versions of Windows Defender???

  Meshuga 08:31 19 Nov 2006

I have 2 PCs, one has Windows Defender and the other shows Windows Defender Beta2. The first has an icon in the task bar by the clock and the other one does not. I dont know how this has happened but can anyone tell me why this should be please. My os is xphome sp2.

On the one with Beta2, uninstall it and install the final version click here

Isn't it still in BETA 2 mode

VoG, have downloaded final version ok but the icon is not shown in the task bar as it is in the other pc. Is there anything I should do to put it there??

mike , no, it is in the final mode now.

Well I've tried to update it says no updates available

The icon doesn't show in the notification area on mine.

Have a look on the processes tab in Task Manager and see if msascui.exe is running - that is Windows Defender.

Suggest you follow VoGs advice to me as shown above in this thread.

  Meshuga 09:35 19 Nov 2006

VoG, msascui.exe is not shown in processes in task manager.

VoG, have just checked the other PC and msascui.exe is shown in task manager on that one.
