If you do that you will lose everything and the computer will be put back tot he way it was when you got it. DONT DO IT lol

Just download the iso, burn it to a disk and follow the guide I gave you :wink:

And since you have Windows 7 with SP1 you will need a disk of Windows 7 with SP1 already on it, if you dont have one you can grab an image here :wink:

Keep the guide handy you will be rebooting. But once started you should be good to go.

Thanks Shane I did it all and I can find it under on services but when I find it and try to turn it on (while Windows Security Essentials is on...) should it be giving me this? is this normal... aside from that my computer is now lightning fast!  :artist:

You dont want defender enabled if you have another antivirus installed. DO you have any others installed? My self I use the free version of Avast. :wink:

The last time I used windows security essentials, it did disable windows defender. I'm guessing it still does.
