I didn't care for Windows Defender too much. If you're looking for some anti spyware I would suggest some of these. This is a list I have compiled of what I feel are the best free-anti-spyware/anti-malware downloads. When I use them together on my system it does an excellent job in keeping it clean.

Advanced Windows Care

Ad-Aware 2007

Advanced Spyware Remover

EMCO Malware Destroyer

Malware Sweeper

Spybot Search and Destroy

Spyware Begone

Spyware Terminator

Super Anti-Spyware

Trend Micro Housecall

Microsoft developed anti-spyware several years ago after Bill Gates discovered spyware on his computer.

It is called Windows Defender and it is free.

I once had a anti-spyware link (such as yours) attach itself to my IE program under "tools". It didn't do any harm but I could not get rid of it, even after deleting IE and reinstalling it.
IE antispyware itself is spyware

Run your anti-spyware in Safe Mode.If you dont have an excellent anti-spyware or your current anti-spyware can't prevent spyware from Invading you computer,download a better one.

There are top 5 anti-spywares reviews,comparisons and download links on

You can download and scan your computer for free.

As the computer is booting press your "F8 Key" repeatly which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" . Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.

After into safe mode,run an anti-spyware to remove the spyware and adware on you computer.

Make sure you have 1 or 2 antispyware on your computer and 1 antivirus and also 1 firewall.

I would go with Spybot


Spyware Blaster

and AVG free anti-rootkit, just to be on the safe side:
