Aargh! If you are looking for help, please do not yell at us by
posting a message in all caps. Perhaps some people will read all of
your screaming messages, but most of us won't bother.

Hi Carol,

Onecare includes Windows Defender. If you already had Defender
installed, Onecare will turn off your previously installed version.

Hope this helps

Hi Funnyface,

Here's what is happening:

Windows Live OneCare incorporates the functionality of Windows Defender,
while substituting its own User Interface (UI.)

Consequently, with OneCare installed, Windows Defender will be disabled.

This does not mean that you are not protected--in fact, you are far better
protected than with simply Windows Defender alone.

So--what you are seeing is normal. If at some later point you uninstall
OneCare, Windows Defender will remain available and be re-enabled.
