Free MS Windows Defender - Is it any good?

Hi all,

I have found out that the MS Windows Defender is now finished and available for free to licensed users of Windows XP.
You can get it at:

It does require that you validate your copy of WinXP via the Windows Genuine Attacker, er Advantage, (WGA).

I have been using a program called "Spyware Terminator" from Crawler, LLC out of Boca Raton, Florida ( and it seems to be okay.
It has RealTime Shield, on demand scanner, scheduler, HIPS, etc.
It is also FREE!
Has anyone else used it or even heard of it??

I was just wondering if anyone had any pros, cons, or comments on Windows Defender??

As always,

I have found Windows Defender is not very good. It doesn't seem to find much of anything that several other programs do. I'd stay with spyware terminator. It offers real time protection and is much better.
