Windows Defender Helps to Get Rid of Spywares

Windows Defender is an entry level spyware program which ships with Windows 7. The tool performs a scan of your hard drive and removes any potential spyware or malware, which may have accidently entered your computer. If you don’t know, Spywares enter a PC silently when you are browsing the web. Hence, you should visit only those sites which are trusted.

You can locate Windows Defender inside Control Panel. You will view a screen as shown below
