Hello,

I tried windows update but get an error message.

1. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Security.
2. Click Security Center, and then make sure Automatic updating is turned on. Your computer will update automatically.

Is windows Defender any good?

Windows Defender is fair enough. It's good to have more than one anti-spyware product running.

I want to get rid of McAfee because im tired of having to log on to my home comp

I don't get you here. McAFee makes you log on your computer?

Hello,

I don't use McAFee, so I don't really understand. Do you mean the XP logon screen? The one where you have to key in your username and password?

There should be an option somewhere in the program settings to disable it. Look around the software.
