Scott, should I even bother turning on Windows Defender in Windows 7? Keep in mind that I have Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

I recommend turning it on for computer novices and/or users who have been known to have problems with malware in the past. In any case I'd have Malwarebytes Free on any system for situtations where malware is suspected. Scott.

As far as Windows 7 is concerned, would you prefer Windows Defender over Microsoft Security Essentials?

I would install Security Essentials in Windows 7/Vista, which takes the place of (and disables) Defender. I actually thought you were talking about Security Essentials initially, as that is what they now call Defender in Windows 8. Scott.
