Does Windows Defender Even Do Anything? I Dont Think It Does...

Q: Does Windows Defender Even Do Anything? I Dont Think It Does...

Ok I have Windows Defender. Along with SpyCatcher, AVG anti virus and AVG anti spyware, Spyware Terminator, VundoFix, Ad-Aware SE, Spyware Doctor and Spybot S&D. Reciently found that I have a pop up generator. So I did a scan with Windows Defenter can came back clean. I then did a scan with every single other program I have and EVERY program came back with multiple fairly serious threats. So basically 50 viruses got past Windows Defender. So obviously it does not find viruses effectively. Do what does it do? Should I just remove it?

A: Does Windows Defender Even Do Anything? I Dont Think It Does...

Windows Defender is an anti-spyware tool not an anti-virus. Using more than one anti-spyware program increases your protection coverage. No single product is 100% foolproof and can detect and remove all threats at any given time. The security industry is in a constant state of change with new infections coming out on a daily basis. Each vendor has its own definition of what constitutes spyware and scanning your computer using different criteria will yield different results. The fact that each program has its own definition files means that some malware may be picked up by one that could be missed by another. Thus, a layered defense using several products to supplement your anti-virus and scanning in safe mode provides the most complete protection.

Last night around 1 or 2 in the morning, I was looking at websites like alluc.org. I searched for "onclickvideo" in google. I found the website that I was looking for and went to it. It was onclickvideos.com. Somewhere between that homepage and one page that I clicked on there, my browser started acting really weird. I was using firefox. Firefox started to crash everytime I re-opened it. Then I got a fake security center result saying that there is a Trojan detected. It gives me this button to click to "fix" the problem. When I click it, it takes me to defender-review.com and that webpage tells me to download the software. This is the only webpage that firefox will open without crashing. I have NOT downloaded that software. While that page was up, I opened a new tab and searched google to see if it was legit, which it was not. Firefox still wasn't acting right, so I did what the people in the forums I found said, which was to go to the AppData folder and go through there seeing what was created around the same time that it first started acting up. I went into safe mode and did this. When I restarted, firefox would not open at all. It tells me that there is already a window of firefox running but that it is not responding and to either close that window or restart. I went to Task Manager, and it doesn't show anything firefox running.This is what Task Manager showed.I tried to get HijackThis, but it said "Your current internet security settings... Read more

Assuming I can, somehow, do I want both ?

Hi, I am Emy from the Netherlands. Wish you all a nice day!

I have troubles with - at least - one of the computers in the little network here. I will describe some of the troubles.
-Links to internetpages on the desktop dont work. I need to paste those in a blank window.
-2 weeks ago the home internetpage was blocked. After looking in a lot of forums I found how to change the homepage to Google. (by changing the registry)
-Online scanners for spyware dont start/are interrupted or dont find anything wrong
-Windows installer is coming up after every click I make to install Symantec Antivirus. But Symantec is already installed.
-I tried programs like Ccleaner and ATF; also Combofix. The last one was also interrupted (black screen). I installed the recovery console. Dont know how to delete this console.
-Even when I dont use this computer, it is like the computer is busy - at times (sounds like when using a program busy converting media files)
-I couldnt activate my membership. Not using the first link, nor the second one. Got a message that something wrong.
-I found srchassctl in the registry. Erased the Search Assistant. After rebooting ACMRU was gone, but SrchAssCtl is here again
-I found msmsgs a lot of times on this computer. I think the problems started with a message in the Live messenger.

Now I will paste the properly files to this topic. DDS and Attach

Select the version that applies to your system.
Save it to your Desktop.
Double-click the downloaded file to run it.

When the tool opens click Yes to the disclaimer.
At the program's console, press the Scan button.

When done, the tool produces a log, FRST.txt, in the same directory from which the tool is run (Desktop).


Please provide the FRST.txt in your reply.

The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log: Addition.txt

Hello all,

I have been having a problem for quite some time now. I'm unsure when it started happening because it's been going on for such a long time now. So, here's whats been going on.

Every time i try to delete something, it finishes deleting and the 'Deleting' Windows stays open and it tells me its calculating how much time is remaining and it says 0 bytes left. o to get rid of the window i have to restart windows explorer from the task manager. Another problem i've been having is that when i rename a file, i can't X out of the window that i renamed the file in and i have to restart windows explorer for it to work. After i restart WE the folder/file is renamed. The last problem linked to this is that whenever i move/copy a file, it keeps the 'Moving' window open and i can't close it unless i restart windows explorer.


It's a real pain to deal with this and if anyone could help me out that would be great...

hi all

First I know this has been asked a many times but no solutions seems to work for me. I have a bunch of stuff going wrong and all seems to related to each other.

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.
That is how the problem progressed:

1. I was trying to enable Telnet service and found out that 'Turn Windows Features on/off' in Control panel > Programs and Features is a blank list.

I checked on internet and i found out that it means my windows update wont be working as well so i check it:

2. Windows update gives the error 80070002 and it does not check for updates.

3. Again check net and it said to run sfc/scannow in command prompt (as administrator). I did it. and it gives error 'Windows Resource Protection can't execute the command'.

I have tried everything. I have tried:
msconfig.exe to enable/disable services and restarting and rechecking.
Uninstalling my Avast Antivirus.
Running MS Fixit tool.
I have checked disk check in advanced startup options.
Deleted 'C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download' contents and recheck the Windows update facility.
Nothing works. I dont have Windows CD coz my laptop came installed with windows.

Thanks for reading. and helping

From what little I have read some just dont like it....Change is often bad as people want familiarity so they dont seem lost on the new OS.
So with{un} familiarity aside ...I am interested more in its short comings such as useful functions lost if there are any.
Also is it multi tasking friendly.

Here i am again, complaining about my system..
As my previous topics, this one i think is more serious as i cant boot nor open up advance boot options(f8 dont work). As soon the manufacturers logo show off, an error: "Disk read error. Press ctr+alt+del to resatrt." It remains unless i press shutdown. Power on and it still shows the same.
 
I havent finished the download of the iso(to be used as a recovery method) thats why i opt for another way which is to recover a backup copy of my registry(which iv done by manually exporting it).  However, i have encrypted it before with my administrative user account. Now, im not able to decrypt it via cipher or keys as if i run: "cipher /c thatfilename.reg" it informs me that only the user(my account) and certificate thumbprint can decrypt it. No found backup certificate or keys. Bad for me i dont know how to recover it via the certificate thumprint....
 
My last option that i try is use EaseUs Data Recovery Wizard, which i have googled about tools that can decrypt files...
Glad it runs even im only using the recovery console. I installed it on my memory card(as my pc can still detect it). Im new to this tool and still dont know what should i click on for a spedific purpose. But i have tried the partition recovery, since im thinking that maybe it could still detect missing/lost files on the drive by which windows is installed..  It search then rebuild directories for more than 4 hours. remaining time is already at 00:...

Since the drive still works you might want to give SpinRite a try.  This isn't free and will probably run for days before it fixes your problems.  I do not see you getting your data back any other way since it is encrypted.  Encryption is great for keeping information private, but I've see a whole lot of data lost due to encryption.  In the end only you can say how much your data is worth.

Hi. This is my first post and hopefully placed into the correct sub-forum. I am running Windows XP.First and foremost, I have become infected with the Windows System Defender trojan. I have downloaded Malwarebyte Anti-Malware to help clear it off and have also tried to remove it manually. When trying to remove manually the trojan would not let me CTRL-ALT-DEL to kill the processes/.dll's. Also, any time I tried to run Malwarebyte Anti-Malware, either from my desktop or off a thumb drive, it would close the program. I was able to kill to Locate and delete Windows System Defender registry entries. I was not able to search and unregister Windows System Defender DLL libraries. So in that sense I half assed removed/stop the trojan, but its still there.At a loss since I couldn't get Malwarebyte Anti-Malware to run OR able to fully and completely remove the trojan manually since I was unable to get into the Task Manager to remove the .dll's associated with the trojan, I re-started my computer, went back into Windows, and went to re-start it in Safe Mode thinking I could run Malwarebyte Anti-Malware in safe mode to solve my problem. However this has now lead to a more seriously problem and I get this constant blue screen:I can't even get back into the login screen because I get this blue screen now. I am able to access the F2, F8 and F12 options when I very first start up. Even selecting from F8 to start windows normally under my last system default gives m... Read more

Hello!

I have a problem but how to say? I don?t know what it is at all. My operating system is Windows XP Service Pack 2 Home edition and I have already completed the 5 steps before posting a Log and there are not many changes.

The symptoms:
- First time in the middle November my laptop started to act in a weird way: when I have caps lock on it will type small letters and the opposite, when I want to open a new tab in explorer it will open me a new window, when I want to use the right click options of my mouse I will have to click the left side, when I want to select one folder it will select all the folders present in the already opened one. Therefore I tried to update and run a check with my antivirus (NOD32) and Spyboot S&D but I couldn?t update them and not even run a proper check. Therefore I thought of restarting my computer and performing the check while starting up and everything turned back to normal apart the sound: the sound will not play when windows starts up or shuts down, warning messages appear or when I plug in my USB but music and movies will play normally in winamp, windows media player and similar programs. After restarting my laptop I also could update my antivirus and Spyboot S&D and run a normal check but nothing was found at the time.
- A few days ago while working on something my laptop suddenly restarted and when it came back into windows it showed me a warning saying ?the system has just recovered from a serious problem report to bla... Read more

Microsoft has equipped the new Windows 8 operating system with an upgraded version of Windows Defender, a full-featured security product that inherits many of the features previously available in Security Essentials.

The application comes pre-installed on all Windows 8 versions and cannot be uninstalled, but the app is automatically disabled once the user deploys another security software.

And even though it?s supposed to help protect a Windows 8 workstation, Mark Austin, chief technology officer of Windows security software firm Avecto, told IT Pro that Windows Defender might actually give users a false sense of security.

?Although [it] is a positive step in some respects, it has the danger of giving organisations a false sense of security, as it shouldn?t be relied upon to protect against malware threats,? he said. ?The nature of malware attacks has changed and more sophisticated security technology and proactive measures are required to protect against these threats.?

Basically, the security researcher claims that users are recommended to install their very own security product, as integrated software may be unable to cope with certain attacks.

?It is important to always take a defence-in-depth strategy to security, and to not rely solely on the built-in features of the operating system,? Austin continued.

Aryeh Goretsky, researcher at antivirus software firm ESET, said in October that Windows Defender might actually be disabled on plenty of ne... Read more

Okay. Now I know this is going to sound stupid but the other day I was trying to download a keygen for a friend. I don't do this for myself. So I was going to test it, then Avast! says threat detected and it said trojan virus. Ignoring this because some keygens are not a threat even if it says it is, so I opened it then it started to extract files. Closed out immediately. Didn't have problems for the rest of the night. Then I turned on my computer in the morning. The Windows Aero theme was disabled and I have a windows 2000/95 ish theme instead. Also the flag popped up in the notifications saying the windows security center has been disabled. When I try to enable it, it says error cannot start. I ran services to see what was disabled. Color, Defender, all of that was disabled. When I try to enable, it says failed to start. So I ran a full system scan with Avast. Nothing. Use Spybot Search and Destroy, 4 threats.

I have been getting these error codes every time i try to update windows
software. I have googled extensively on this problem and followed guides, but
its still giving me error codes. I am NOT using a proxy or anything like
that. This error poped up after I uninstalled kaspersky from my computer I
believe. I am running Vista 32bit SP1 (SP1 because i still havent been able
to update). I have tried using Microsoft's update links, but they are broken
because they just return me to google. Please help someone! I need to get
this fixed before tomorrow because of that new virus.

Hello. I am experiencing trouble with my HP Windows 7 64Bit laptop. I noticed some changes back in December but thought it was because I received a new modem/router from ATT. I am always being redirected when I click on a link or have adware pop up. I use Google Chrome and installed an AdBlocker but it doesn't help. Also, I run spybot and CCleaner each week and SuperAntispyware and Uniblue registry booster everyday. When I click on Window Firewall, I get the following message: Windows Firewall can't change some of your settings error code 0x80070424I ran the Fix it tools, but it sent me to an online forum for more help. From there I found out that my Window Defender and Windows Security Essentials were also not working. I was able to install WSE but I am getting the same error code for Window Defender. Windows Security Essentials ran and found some issues and said it needed to restart to clear out the issues. However, during the restart, it tells me that it has encounter a problem and must reboot. On the forum, I read that I am most likely infected with a root kit virus. I have a folder called system64 C:/WINDOWS/SYSTEM64 and a file called consrv.dll C:/WINDOWS/SYSTEM32/CONSRV.DLLI. On another site, they asked for me to run Malwarebytes,OLT,TDSSKiller, and MBRCheck.

A friend, who exhausted his resources at hand for trying to clear my infection, recommended I post here.

The issue:

* Was getting google search result redirects (seemes fixed after changing my DNS server)

* Cannot start Windows Defender (message: The Windows Security Center Service can't be started.)

* Cannot start Windoes Security Center Service

* Cannot start Microsoft Security Essentials (appears for a brief moment before evaporating)

* Malwarebytes comes up clean, Rkill comes up clean, Spybot detects two registry changes, says it "fixed" them, but the error remains in subsequent scans.

Hello carl424 & welcome to Vista Forums.
The Malicious Software Removal Tool detects and removes high-profile viruses including Blaster, Sasser, and Mydoom etc.
This is not a real-time tool but rather an application you run periodically.

Windows Defender detects and removes spyware. It is software that helps protect your computer against pop-ups, slow performance, and security threats caused by spyware and other unwanted software. It features Real-Time Protection, a monitoring system that recommends actions against spyware when it's detected, minimizes interruptions, and helps you stay productive.

Hope that helps you.

I run Windows 7 Professional and last Tuesday when there was Windows Update was when things started to go odd. First the anti-virus and Windows Defender kept shutting off because the updates were installing, but one of the updates couldn't install. So it would try again a few hours later. I finally rebooted thinking that would make the update take place. When rebooting it said it was doing the updates and after that it would reboot (was on the shut down screen). When I booted back up later there was still one update that needed to be installed (an important one it said) but when I tried to install it it had trouble and said the update failed. I also noticed that my downloads in my browsers were not working (it would remove the download as soon as it finished .. tried with 3 browsers but it seems unrelated as others are having this issue just recently as well). I rebooted again last night thinking it might update then but this time it didn't. I booted the computer after I had it off all last night and that one update still needs to update and the anti-virus now can't be found and Window Defender was not enabled but I reenabled it and that is running. The problem is I can't just download an anti-virus and install it as my browser still won't download. So now I am typing this without any anti-virus contemplating going to the store to buy ESET or Bit Defender or something.

Windows Vista Home Premium x86 (32Bit) Service Pack 2

Everytime I restart Vista I get the follow Error:
INTERNAL_POWER_ERROR
Also, Search Engines Redirect me, and my explorer would freeze on me. I would also get an error message (Windows Host Services have stopped working) but it went away.
I tried running RKILL and an immediate bluescreen pops up: DRIVERS_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

I tried fixing some things on my own, but now I am stumped.
I had mcafee,but switched to kaspersky since the issue. Everytime I scan, right before I would update the scanners.

I use Malwarebytes and Kaspersky along with CCleaner. And I use TuneUp to speed up my PC.
Nothing has been found.

This problem started with Windows 7 (On Drive E:\). I tried updating iTunes to 10.2.2 and a security message popped asking me allow or deny. I choose allow out of habit before I could process it did not say apple but some random letters and number followed by (.exe).

My computer froze and ever since my Windows 7 would not boot, and when I try to load it in Safe mode, only 3 drivers load (too fast to read them) and it immediately goes to startup repair-which of course, fails.

Now Vista (On Drive C:\)....well, it's Vista lol. My windows defender error when trying to update - (0x8007043c) and windows update error - (80072EFE). I believe it is a rootkit error or something with SVCHOST.exe but not entirely sure.

Hello,

I am having trouble with Windows Defender and Update. I am getting error 0x800705b4 for Defender and though I've searched online on how to fix the problem none of them seem to work. Also, my computer won't let me access the update & security portion of my settings. When I click on it the window closes immediately.

A:Can't turn on Windows Defender and cannot open windows update window

RE : I am having trouble with Windows Defender and Update. I am getting error 0x800705b4
That error code usually happens, but not necessarily always because of that, when you have a 3rd party anti-virus program installed, such as Avast, AVG, Norton and McAfee. Those programs mentioned have their own defender and having 2 defenders running in the same computer will create conflicts, not to mention redundancy. Therefore, those programs will shut down Windows Defender.

Please disregard the suggestion posted below. I misunderstood your question.

Sony Vaio Laptop is having problems. Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit OS. It had malware on it, called Alureon. I was directed to use Windows Defender Offline, using a CD. After running it, it removed the Alureon problem and 2 other viruses. So, I thought I was good to go. So, I restarted my computer, like it told me to, and now....

It will NOT startup. It will show the "Starting Windows" logo, then stop, flash the BSOD for a split second, then restarts, only to repeat the process.

When I run the startup repair, it cannot fix the problem. It WILL NOT boot any other way. I cannot use any of the Safe modes. It'll do the same thing. after it loads my files, it BSOD for a split second and restarts. The BSOD code is
I would like to avoid formatting and reinstalling the OS. If at all possible PLEASE TELL ME THERE IS ANOTHER WAY!!!!

It says under Technical Information:

Hello,

Sorry to make my first post a question but here goes!

I have a Dell laptop running Windows 7 and using Microsoft Security Essentials anti-virus software. I have recently picked up a virus which was hijacking my search engine. This malicious software was automatically detected by Security Essentials but it informed me via a pop up window that I needed to download Windows Defender onto a flash drive and reboot my computer using it. I did this and everything seemed to be going really wlll with the Trojan detected and duly deleted.
The problem I now have is that I can no longer log onto my computer with Windows 7 not opening. I have tried using the 'Launch Start Up Tool' as instructed and the 'F12 reboot frm Hard Drive' to no avail. I desperately do not want to lose data from my hardrive. Does anybody have any ideas - system restore? Re-load Windows 7 ? etc. Is it the sort of thing a computer shop might be able to help me with?

I don't really know what I have done wrong as I followed all the instructions and it all seemed to working so well!

Many thanks in advance.

Cheers, Andy

A:Problem Opening Windows 7 following Virus Removal (Windows Defender)

Hi Andy and welcome to SevenForums,

You definately do NOT need a PC shop to help you, we can do that here at no charge. SevenForums has some of the best people in the business so you are in good hands.

Have you tried to reboot in "Safe Mode with Networking" yet? If not, please try that.

Do you recall the name of the trojan? Depending on what it was, a clean install might be required, but....before than, we will help you get your data of the disk first, so don't worry about that.

It will also help us if you can give us as much information about your system as possible. Please use this tutorial to help with that:

Golden

About a month ago, I used the built-in Windows 10 recovery method to reinstall Windows 10. I still had a few glitches from my original Windows 7 installation, and these have been resolved by the reinstall.

One thing I've noticed, however, is that I'm getting an error message whenever I try to install the definition update for Windows Defender:

Definitie-update voor Windows Defender - KB2267602 (definitie 1.215.1024.0) - Fout 0x80070643

I already tried sfc /scannow, and it didn't find anything that required fixing. I also tried MicrosoftFixit.msi and NetFxRepairTool.exe, because Googling the error message brought me the news that it was related to the .NET framework.

To be clear: I don't use Windows Defender right now. I got Norton Security installed and it serves me well. I know some people consider it a resource hog, but I've tried Avira as a recommendation by Tom's Guide and it was even worse. My Norton still lasts over 200 days so I have plenty of time if I want to replace it by then. However, I do want Windows to be fully updated, and not having that update finished just stands out like a red ship in a sea of white.

I've considered that this error might be because of Norton, but I didn't have issues before resetting Windows, so I don't see why it would be Norton that suddenly throws a fit about it.

How do I fix this?

I recently downloaded a game on my HP Pavilion g6 (Windows 7 Home Basic), all was well, the game was working fine and the computer hadnt picked up any corrupt files.
But the next day I turned on my laptop and it said "BOOTMGR is missing. Press Ctrl+alt+delete to restart"
Windows 7 came pre-installed on my laptop and I don't have any windows 7 installation discs or any recovery discs.
I have important files on the laptop and I cannot afford to lose it.
Please help!!!

I recently bought a Lenovo laptop that came preloaded with the usual bloatware. The only thing that caught my eye was Phone Companion. Apparently it allows you to send texts and make phone calls from you laptop and they go through your phone. It sounded kind of neat, even if I never used it.
So I started the app and the first thing it says is "Scan this QR code with your Android device to download the companion app!". It was like "what? No WP"? Just in case, I scanned the QR code anyway and of course the app doesn't exist in the Windows Phone store.
Is it strange of me to think that a Windows 8 app would have a WP companion app instead of just Android? Am I being unrealistic? I can see a normal Windows application being specific to the more popular mobile devices, but a Windows 8 app just feels like it is meant to go with Windows Phone. They share a design philosophy and language. Its like if there was a Kinect game that said "Now show your Android phone to Kinect to get started".
Is this what we can expect with Windows 10? PC/Phone combo apps that I cant run without an iPhone or Android?

A:how can you get into windows if you dont know the password at the log in screen

If you can't get into a admin account then there is really no easy way to do it. There is a bootable disk that lets you registry edit and change the password from dos. I know it works on 2000 but not sure about XP though, depends on what you have, I can't quite remember the location of this program but I will search for it and let you know.

Been lookin around for a tutorial about how to make my computer detect my External HD... nothing fixed my problem, first of all : I Cant see my External HD on Disk manage

when i turn on the HD i can feel it is working... so i tryed it on my other computer... it dosnt work as well so i tryed it on my bell expressvu, it dont detect as well

any idea?

A:Windows 7 dont detect External HD

Sounds like the external drive had died. It's possible just the enclosure electronics has died and the drive itself is still okay. You can remove it from the enclosure and install it as a 2nd hard drive in your computer, mount it in another external drive enclosure or buy a USB Universal Drive adapter and connect it to your computer that way.

I have a NewerTech USB 2.0 Universal Drive Adapter that I use for this purpose but there are many other brands available as well. Works with IDE (PATA) and SATA drives from desktop and laptop computers.
