Where is Defender in the Start menu?

Submitted by patternjake on May 31, 2009 to Annoyance, Usability

Microsoft describes Windows 7 as featuring Windows Defender technologies built in. HOWEVER. You cant EVEN FIND IT !!! (At least an average joe anyway) It took me 2 minutes to figure out that its embedded in the action center. 2 minutes is too long if theres a virus on the system.

Add a shortcut back to Windows Defender, or Run a spyware scan or something in the Start menu, very simple solution for an annoying problem.
