Windows Vista's Windows Defender

8 posts in this topic

Hello,

I am wondering if there is a way to get Windows Vista's version of Windows Defender running in Windows 7? I do not like 7's version as it removed too many features. Having the "old" version would make the experience in 7 more enjoyable for me.

Thank you all for your time.

EDIT: I copied the Windows Defender folder from the Program Files directory in Windows Vista, and placed it in the Windows 7 folder of the same name.

There is only one issue... It cannot check for updates. Error code 0x80040155.

Hello Andre,

Thank you for replying. I have tried registering the DLLs but it keeps throwing out error messages stating:

"The module [DLL name] failed to load. Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .DLL files. The specified module could not be found."
