Windows Defender

Extending the protections against malware at the browser level, Windows Defender helps prevent malware from entering the computer via a "piggyback" download, a common mechanism by which spyware is distributed and installed silently along with other applications. Although the improvements in Internet Explorer 7 cannot stop non-browser-based spyware from infecting the computer, using it with Windows Defender will provide a solid defense on several levels. For more information about Windows Defender, read Chapter 24, "Managing Client Protection "
