How about trying a reinstall and then updating the definitions?

Hi Pineman Thank you for replying. I have a dual boot with xp and have decided to leave vista alone until the service pack comes out Kiopite

Yes I did have problems with Windows Defender, but I had an error code which helped me solve the problem.
You don't mention an error code but You may find this worth a read.

You might be better off without defender and use third party alternatives instead which are said to be more thorough in protecting your system

click here do a search,there are many similar reports on the subject
