    Default windows update error message

    When attempting to start defender, I got an error message "

    You do not need to install this software because Windows Defender is included in Windows Vista. You can access Windows Defender from the Security section of the Windows Control Panel."

    I dont use windows vista. I am running windows 8 consumer preview.

    You installation appears corrupted. This is a great time to Clean Install the newer Win 8 RP version. This should fix your problems.
