Ms Antispyware

Can you tell me if it is possible to upgrade MS antispyware to Windows defender manually?

Reason I ask is that I am still running Ms Antispyware beta 1 and am aware the program has been upgraded to windows defender. On the MS site there is a message which says that current beta 1 users will be upgraded via the normal updating process within the program.

I have been waiting for this to happen and it doesn't seem to be occurring hence my question.

Me too. You have to go to click here and install it; it won't happen automatically.
