Should still be there. Maybe it isn't there because nothing created it yet?

Hello Zappa,

This will help show you how to. The option has been removed from Windows Defender though.

Hope this helps,

Maybe you are talking about the item in Windows Defender? That is still in Window Defender.

Woops. Windows Defender is one of the first things I disable when I reinstall. I was assuming. Thanks for the correction!!

No problem Dave.

I was hoping that MS may add it back before Windows 7 is released, but it looks like they are going to leave Windows Defender strictly as a malware and spyware scanner now.

I am a Microsoft loyalist. But when I install I disable anything that has to do with Microsoft security. My thoughts are that evry hacker iin the world is out to get Microsoft and their Security claims. I (very quickly) install my third party gear, which works as well, and usually better, than the built in Proggies. Never had a serious security problem yet, since around about Windows 2.
