Windows Defender Beta 2 now available

Posted by David Hunter at 9:15 AM ET.

As had been anticipated, Beta 2 of Microsoft’s free Windows Defender antispyware offering for Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows Server 2003 was released late yesterday. Aside from replacing the previous name of Windows Antispyware there are these new features:

- A redesigned and simplified user interface
- Improved detection and removal
- Protection for all users on a computer
- Support for 64-bit platforms, accessibility and localization

Finally, the problem with Beta 1 disabling Norton Antivirus was also fixed with a new signature update.
