Trying to update Windows Defender but returned with the following error:

"Error found. Code 0x8024e0001"

What is this about?

OS: Vista Ultimate

Someone still uses Windows Defender? I didn't think it defended much at all, so I dumped it a while back.

Trying to update Windows Defender

Why? It finds nothing.
I see Defender installed on PCs with massive amounts of malware.

I can't work out how to disable Windows Defender. How do I do it?

Vista? Just disable it in Services is the easiest way.
XP - uninstall it.

Or this great thing for Vista:

Just use vlite next time and remove the service permanently.
Wonder what the next version of vlite for Windows 7 will be.
7lite?
