Don’t forget to check out my Windows Defender Preview at ActiveWin.com which I will be updating soon to reflect the changes in the final release.

Windows Defender for Windows XP and Server 2003 is finally here, after a two year beta, it’s been a long time coming for sure. Featuring a major over haul to the UI, Windows Defender is a culmination of months of hard work from both the Anti-Malware team and feedback from the community. Since January 2004, Windows Defender, formally named Windows AntiSpyware has been downloaded over 25 million times.

  1. hi good day I just want to ask if windows defender is ok and safe to install and run at windows server 2003 r2? need you advise.

    thank you.

    • Windows Defender provides baseline security, you need something more robust and proven. An EndPoint solution such as Symantec EndPoint or similar protection from other vendors such as Intel would be recommended 100x over Windows Defender.
