    About Windows Defender in Vista.

    Hello everyone.

    How can I delete Defender fully from windows vista ultimate? I really find
    it useless for me.

    thanks very much!

    You can not delete it. You can yurn it off so that it does not load with
    Windows.

    You might be able to do it with vLite, when making a fresh installation,
    once it has been developed further (I have heard that it is not very
    developed at this stage). I used to use nLite, the XP version, to make very
    slimmed down XP installations on older laptops.

    I used vlite to create a boot disk, with windows defender removed, along
    with Windows Search, Security center, Zip folder viewer and other knit
    knacks. Works pretty good wish they had more options, current revision is at
    ..9

    Re: About Windows Defender in Vista.

    Assuming you don't want to create a new install that as defender removed,
    about your only option is to go in and set the service to disabled. If you
    really want to remove any thought of it, you could go into the registry and
    delete the service entry, which would keep it from ever accidentally
    starting.

    As always, if you don't know what the registry is, it's probably best to
    stay away from it. You can shoot yourself in the foot (and head) real easy
    if you get delete happy

    Hi KeJiaLi:

    Defender is integrated to Vista and CAN NOT BE REMOVED. You can disable it
    at Services, but you will still see it at the Startup Programs in
    Administrative Tools (msconfig). Live it alone and enjoy the Vista U 32 bit,
    I use one.
