Do you have to remove the "old" version first, or simply install over the top?.

Uninstall Giant antispy (MSantispy) first.

Just installed it. Everything seems fine. I uninstalled the old version first.

I installed over the top.

There is no longer an icon in the notification area - is this 'normal'?

Release notes here. Last sentence says that Defender will uninstall Widows Anti-Spyware.

"- is this normal?" Yes! according to the MS Newsgroup posts.
