Hello Brandon, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You cannot uninstall, delete, or reinstall Windows Defender in Vista since it is a part of Vista itself. You can turn it off and on though. Could you please explain more about exactly what you deleted to help you restore it?

Brandon,

Does Windows Defender open when you click on C:\Program Files\Windows Defender\MSASCui.exe ?

If yes, then check with Method Two in this tutorial to see if Windows Defender (step 8D) was set to be hidden in the Control Panel.

http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/120937-control-panel-hide-icon.html


This is usually caused by malware. I would recommend that you run a thorough antivirus and spyware scan to help be safe.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi,

How did you delete it, exactly.? Did you right click the folder and delete - pretty sure you would need to take ownership to do that.

Hi brandon,

Yes, I saw that - but when you said you deleted it - thought maybe you meant you had done so as it wasn't working. Seems to have deleted itself?

Probably worth doing a full scan if you have another anti - malware tool.

Worth trying a system restore to before this happened

http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/76905-system-restore-how.html

If that doesn't work, you might use a file recovery tool to see if it finds anything on your hd.

If you don't already have one, you can get a good freebie from

www.glarysoft.com

Better to download and install it on a separate partition - so as not to overwrite anything.
