Windows 7 : Configuring Windows Defender to Scan Email

12/14/2010 8:53:06 AM
The evil known as spyware usually infects a PC by luring an unsuspecting user to a malicious website that either uses a script to infect an unprotected browser, or uses a pop-up window to dupe the user into clicking a button that installs the malware (a so-called drive-by download). However, spyware crackers also ship out their wares as email attachments. The Windows Live Mail antivirus settings should thwart this kind of thing, but for an extra line of defense you can also configure Windows Defender to scan email messages. Here’s how to set this up:
1.
Select Start, type defend, and then press Enter to open Windows Defender.

2.
Click Tools.

3.
Click Options. The Options dialog box appears.

4.
Click Advanced.

5.
Activate the Scan E-mail check box.

6.
Click Save.
