Got NonAdmin? Do we really need defender?

The morning a workstation got in the middle between an argument between Windows Defender and CCH@Hand research software program.  The user who was on that workstation lost.  The computer was totally unresponsive.


In the event viewer I saw this…

When attempting to reboot msascui.exe was “not responding”… so we ripped out both applications and since the workstation is running without admin rights anyway we’re going to leave it just like that….and given that it’s running without administrator rights… I don’t think I need antispyware at this time anyway.
