Only run it if you are not running a different real-time anti-spy program
such as counterspy, pestpatrol, etc. (which you should be running). Windows
Defender is not very good. If $15 is too much for a top notch program, I'd
recommend you use the free versions of Spybot Search & Destroy and Adaware
in additional to it. You'd have to run a manual scan with them though.

I am being told that a new version of Windows Defender is available for
download.  Any opinions on this?

I'm  running AVG which I think doubles as a firewall.  So I'm wondering if I
need this 'defense'.
