Kari, How can you have Defender running when it gets disabled by MSE? MSE has the Defender component in it. Any way my security is in my signature.

Turned hardware DEP on for all programs and services.

I have just added Immunet free to my security arsenal. Has anyone else tried this? Unlike Panda, Immunet plays nice with other antivirus tools. It seems like a good lightweight layer of added protection. Thanks,
