Windows Defender In Windows XP

Your home page or search engine has changed by itself. Your Web browser contains buttons that you're pretty sure you didn't put there. You see pop-up ads even when you're not connected to the Internet. Or maybe your computer just seems to be running more slowly. These can all be symptoms of spyware.

How does Windows Defender work?

Windows Defender protects your computer in two ways:

1. Scheduled scans of your computer: By default, Windows Defender performs a quick scan of the most likely places for spyware to infect your computer every night at 02:00.

2. Real-time protection: Windows Defender alerts you when malicious programs try to run or install 1themselves.

Minimum system requirements for Windows Defender:

1. Personal computer with an Intel Pentium 233-megahertz (MHz) or higher processor; Pentium III recommended.

2. Operating system: Windows Vista, Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later, or Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 or later.

3. 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM (minimum); 128 MB RAM (recommended).
4. 20 MB of available hard disk space.
5. Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 or later.
6. Internet access with at least a 28.8 Kbps connection.
7. Windows Installer version 3.1 or higher.
