Anyone running Defender in Windows 7 ?(8 posts)
Scott, no I don't have Defender in the system tray, or taskbar notification area, or whatever they are calling it now. I also don't see Defender in my Start menu and typed "defender" in search to launch the GUI.
C:\>sc qc windefend

@ScottW: It would appear the only place Windows Defender can be accessed via Windows Explorer is either the "Windows Defender" icon in Control Panel and any notifications from it about scans or updates appear in the "Action Center".
