this happened on another pc, where i use Nod32.

MS had an update - said it was important, so i downloaded it.

DEFINITION UPDATE FOR WINDOWS DEFENDER - KB915597 (DEFINITION 1.263.48.0)

apparently it is called spynet - my concern is that i am now running 2 antispywares - i want to use Eset - i see no option to not use this MS SpyNet.

Any help appreciated.

I assume you have Window Defender set to perform periodic scanning only? That is the only way it should run since Eset is your primary and should be your only realtime AV solution.

SpyNet is Windows Defender's automatic submission of suspicious activities found on your PC to Microsoft. It also can be used to send telemetry data to Microsoft. If you have enable the Cloud scanning option in Windows Defender, SpyNet is also automatically enabled.

i had run W. Defender a while back on that older PC. -   upgraded to Nod 32, though still use W. Firewall on it.  that older pc runs W-7.

I do not know if i have enabled cloud scanning in W. Defender - i do not want to  --  how do i go about checking & or disabling any W. Defender cloud scanning.  I DO NOT WANT TO USE W.DEFENDER -  -     I LIKE ESET, IN FACT MIGHT UPGRADE THAT OLDER PC TO EIS.  Have not yet as it is a spare PC i rarely use.

Q. -2  - Does ZA firewall FREE work with Nod 32.  or is there another FREE firewall that will work with Nod32?

Thanks.

This should have disabled it in Win 7.

Thanks for the help.  i guess anyone who wants to give W. Defender a go should be wary about updates from MS for W.Defender.
