    Windows 7 Forums Promotions and Giveaways

    My Laptop, an expensive model, started like that and finally hung up. The bug report (safe mode) indicated a graphics problem. I googled and got some frightening results. It seems that with some, not all, laptops, using Nvidea graphics, have had the same problem. I am not frightening you, but it...

    Thanks for the reply, Kemical. I guess I will just have to bear with clicking it each time and cancelling again, to get rid of the notification.

    Can't find Windows Defender

    I have heavily customised my start programs, but I think, by default, it is in "Accessories" It is included in windows and is free. If you install Micrpspft's own antivirus program, Microsoft Security essentials (MSE), which is an updated successor to Defender, it will disable it.
