Hi, I Suggest not do delete Windows Defender and its now default antivirus/firewall provided by Microsoft. If you still want to delete it please do follow the below process to un-install manually.

1. Open a command Prompt and type the following to stop and then delete the Defender service:

  • type in : sc stop windefend and press enter
  • type in : sc delete windefend
2. Next you need to grant full permissions to and delete the following registry key so the Defender Control Panel entry can be deleted: open RUN command and type in regedit
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ControlPanel\NameSpace\{D8559EB9-20C0-410E-BEDA-7ED416AECC2A}
3. Also grant full permission and delete the Defender program registry key:
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Defender
4. Now take ownership of and delete the following folders:
  • C:\Program Files\Windows Defender
  • C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Defender
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Defender (for 64-bit users only) and reboot the computer.

You can download it from this link - Shortcut Virus Remover

Place it in your pen drive and double click to run.
Press Enter to confirm its process.
That is all.

Shortcuts will remove and your data will be back in a second.

Windows - Internet Defender is constantly warning me of the presence of viruses on my computer, but i already have another Anti-virus doing the job, and am tired of Internet defender giving me pop-ups...


Hi ryan_a_parke
Internet Defender is a virus as you can read here : http://www.spywareremove.com/removeInternetDefender.html
If you can't succeed to remove it with the instructions , try this :
Delete your antivirus , it is useless since it didn't identify Internet Defender) .
Go to http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/ and download Microsoft's stuff . It's free but it will work , believe me .
Complete your pcs protection by downloading and installing free MalwareBytes : http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10896905.html
Best regards ,

Windows defender


It sounds like a fake warning alright. You should have a professional check it out. Malware removal is best done by a pro because often unwanted side-effects show up after removal, such as disabled network access. If you feel confident about fixing it yourself, try downloading the free version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from http://www.malwarebytes.org/. Perform the Quick Scan. This will take a few minutes. If it finds anything, then follow the prompts to fix it. Reboot if prompted to do so. Then also follow up with Perform Deep Scan afterward to double-check that everything got removed. Deep Scan can take much longer (hours). This should work. I suggest it with the best intentions, but if other problems arise, I disclaim any responsibility.

Computer running slow


Well...when using trend micro you shouldn't need windows defender. You should also try cleaning your registry. I own a new computer with vista as well. If your registry is just a little bugged up your whole computer could be dragging. Try the programs below and see which one you like best...

http://registry-cleaner.comodo.com/

http://www.eusing.com/free_registry_cleaner/registry_cleaner.htm
You should continue cleaning your registry about 3 times a week.

Virus


Yes, the pop ups telling you "your computer is infected" "download registry cleaner" etc. usually come from malaware.
The best automated cleaner is still spybot, you can download it here The home of Spybot-S&D! or here Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.4 - Free software downloads and ...
If Spybot cannot delete the viruses/malaware, then the choice is between locating the registry entries, infected files and corrupted settings one by one, using regedit and HijackThis , and reinstalling Windows.

Unless you are an expert Windows troubleshooter (or you can get one) I suggest backing up all your data and reinstalling windows on a new folder, if not formatting the HD completely.

Spybot is not a resident antivirus, after cleaning , if you do not have any other antivirus software, you can download this one for free
AVG Free - Download antivirus
Good luck
