Deal with it the way you are or gt rid of Spyware Terminator. I would remove Windows defender and keep Spyware terminator.As far as I can remember both give full time protection and you are liable to have the odd conflict between them.

But if kimisam, disables Spyware erminater the problem goes away, so surely thats where the problem lies?

Defender is part of Vista, you can enable/disable startup progs as well as the real time scanner. I'd uninstall S.T.

Yes but it all depends what one you think does the best job.So far kimisam has not came back and said he actually has Windows Defender installed.

rdave13, said that Windows Defender is part of Vista so would it not be installed?

Hi all,

sorry for not been around for a while, I do have windows defender as its part of my vista os, I still have to disable spyware terminater before my pc can be updated. I think this is what I am keep on doing for a while as I do not want to uninstall either programmes.

many thanks for all your replies.
