We use Symantec Anti-Virus for all of our computers inside of our office right now. It works for viruses, but is missing quite a bit of spyware etc. That said, I was wondering if anyone has deployed Windows Defender to their XP machines via GPO & whether that is helping? If so, how do you deploy it with the settings of when to do scans etc, any exclusions (if even needed)?. I have WSUS, so I think that it is already downloading definitions & would assume it would push those to Windows XP machines.
If you don't use Windows Defender, what other anti-spyware applications do you use that are real-time, but won't cause a lot of headache in the long-run.
Windows 2003 domain (soon to be Windows 2008 domain) with Windows XP SP2 & SP3. Some Windows 7 machines, but they already have Windows Defender
