windows defender

Posted: 06-17-2006, 06:53 PM
hi i received an alert from windows defender saying that if found a high
alert item. the item is CinFC which according to defender is adware. it is a
windows system 32 dll but i cant find anymore info on it.
windows\appinit_dlls:runner.dll defender wants to remove it but says that its
possible that it just didnt get the adequate permission when it was
installed. im running windows vista 5384.4 and dont want to remove incase its
required.

No. You can disable it but you cannot remove it, at least I am not aware of
a supported way to do that.

Please tell me how to ALLOW windows defender to open? I always have a message
in the "notification space" that a program was blocked and it is windows
defender on boot up. It says it is not turned "on" but when i open it is set
correctly.

There are no problems - spyware, adware, etc and after I close the defender
window, the "blocked" icon goes away.

But this happens EVERY time I turn on the computer.

Thanks!

Did you already have a copy of Defender installed perhaps before you did
your Vista upgrade?
Those symptoms sound like it.

No, Windows vista was preinstalled on my new Toshiba laptop (A135-S44887)
purchased three weeks ago.

But thanks for writing.

I have the same Toshiba and the same problem with Defender. I finally
disabled Defender from running in real time and installed AVG's
Anti-Spyware, no fuss, no muss.
Defender has some interesting features, but nothing that can't be handled by
"msconfig", "task manager" and a firewall that notifies you of outgoing
traffic. BTW MS, did you catch that
last part about notification of outgoing traffic?

You are behind the times. The Windows Vista firewall does monitors both
inbound and outbound traffic.

Hi Nospam

I am not even able to "enable" defender. I am told it is not on and not
protecting. Then I open the program, and all is well. it is set, and working.
The next day, i have the same problem. I also have the defender to scan at
11pm every day. it is not on, so it does not scan!
