Windows 7: WinDefender/Spywareblaster

26 Jan 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Just posting that my Windows Defender says there might be malicious software that exists on my computer when it gets to Spywareblaster but when the scan's complete it says there is no harmful software detected.

It does it with Spywareblaster installed in compatibility mode and to run as admin and without those settings.

Just letting anybody know if it happens to them.

This issue shouldn't occur in more recent builds. I have verified that it doesn't occur with Spyware Blaster on a recent build. Thanks for the feedback.
