Windows Defender

I've just installed the finished version of Windows Defender and it seems to be playing havoc with my machine. Even though the installation is finished, each time I open it, instead of getting the Defender screen I get the installation box and it prepares to install it again. This is despite the fact that, initially it said "installation complete".

Do what fruit bat says,But once you delete it,If you can run C Cleaner just to get rid of the little bits left behind.Then re-install.

Thanks both and before I followed your advice I realised what the problem was. I had to open it from "All Programs", not from the Desktop and I hadn't been doing that...it's there now.

I open it fine from the desktop icon.

it really shouldn't make any difference from where you open a self extracting .exe programme. desk top worked fine for me as well.

I think I'm confusing you. After installation, it didn't go to my desktop-only the Installer was there and that's what I was clicking on. I dragged and dropped it from "All Programs" to the desktop and now it opens as it should. Thanks all.
