just don't forget that the original data is in hexa and autopatcher can read decimal only
for the x86 version, an vm must be set and i'm still deploying the service packs for vista x64 to take some detections for the .net script. that will take some time yet, since my vista x64 dvd is rtm version (due that, sp1, sp2...)
windows defender installer is the same one that is at the script. so, no need for an change, except by the mistake in the restrictions section of the module. for ms safety scanner, i can't track the updates for it, sorry
> Installation routine 'turns off'
true. that has to be done in order to have an silent install. at the reboot, the update is on again
> does not uninstall Windows Defender
that is required? i was thinking that mse installer was turning windows defender off. if that is an issue, i can check for an way to do that

Windows Defender does not have to be uninstalled - the issue could be that after Security Essentials is installed AutoPatcher still shows Defender - only it's in black - could confuse some people.

Win7 64-bit w/SP1.
\Program Files has folders: \Windows Defender and \Microsoft Security Client.
Control Panel > Programs and Features - lists Microsoft Security Essentials 2.1.1116.0
Control Panel > Programs and Features > Turn Windows features on or off > Windows Features - could not find any lisitng for Windows Defender (so it appears to not be an optional installation program, user has no choice - it is installed by default).
Administrative Tools > Services > Windows Defender > Status (blank) > Startup Type - Manual > Log On As Local System - have no idea why it is shown as Manual.
Administrative Tools > Services > Microsoft Antimalware Service > Status Started > Startup Type Automatic > Log On As Local System
So I would have to state that Windows Defender is turned off when Security Essentials is installed but there really is no option to uninstall Windows Defender in the places most people would look for an uninstaller.

I would have to guess to say the maintainer copied and pasted to one location and not to the other...once the error has been reported it will be fixed very quickly
