I go into add/remove programs and try to unistall windows defender and it say
it cannot find windowsdefender.msi and asks me for an install disc.  I
searched my machine and the file does not exist.  This is a real problem
because I am trying to install Norton 360 and it says I must uninstall
windows defender first.  I only briefly used the beta version and somehow
after beta expired some files were deleted or corrupted.  I also tried to
install new version of windows defender but I get the same error message
about file not found and I need to use install disc.
