Windows Defender kills usb devices and more

Submitted by: Yetskii @ 10:56 AM | Thursday, April 17, 2008 | (url: http://http://www...)

Microsoft has admitted it is investigating reports that a recent Windows Vista security update causes havoc with some USB devices, but the software giant is yet to provide a fix for the cock-up.

The Windows Defender update was released last week, but some unfortunate Vista customers have claimed that their USB mice and keyboards among other devices refuse to work after the update is installed on their computers.

When I installed vista a few weeks ago, first thing I did was get rid of Defender.
