Windows Defender support Windows 2000


Why doesn’t Windows Defender support Windows 2000 anymore?

✍: Guest

Windows Defender is primarily a consumer antispyware solution. Windows 2000 was not a popular consumer operating system and mainstream support ended on June 30, 2005. Due to these reasons, we decided to focus more on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. Both of these operating systems with the latest service packs have significantly better security protection overall, which will also help to prevent spyware on those computers that run those operating systems.
