Cannot manage Startup Programs if Defender is turned off !?

Posted: 09-29-2006, 10:21 PM
Good old Symantec Antivirus, when installing, turns Windows Defender off.
This happens with RC1 build 5728 for both x64 and x86. Don't know what
happens on previous builds.

If Windows Defender is turned off, it is not possible to manage startup
programs through Control Panel - Performance Information and Tools - Manage
Startup Programs. It warns you that Windows Defender is turned off and
you can only close the window.

Apart from turning Defender on is there an alternative way to manage Startup
programs or is this a feature of Vista or a bug ?
