    You should be able to uninstall it just as you would any other software package. Depending on your OS, you should be able to get to you control panel and select programs, then find the software and click uninstall

    1st of all assuming u have done some mistake, probably it is not MWdefender instead u asked for MS Defender (and OS probably Windows 7)! Yes, after uninstalling this utility thru Add/Remove prog, part of its service runs. However, instead of uninstall (if u didn't do that already) u can simply disable this service by Right click of my computer > manage and scroll down to Services and stop the windows defender service. If u want to avoid it starting at next boot, u can set the service's startup type is disabled. Also u can click Run >cmd and click OK or press enter key. on next box type as : sc windefend stop If u want to completely remove then dnld Wondows Installer Cleanup Utility which helps to overcome ur issue.
