  1. Cant access parts of Windows Defender


    I am able to scan my PC for threats, but when trying to change my PC to allow Windows Defender to check apps and files, I am unable to do so. I have an administrator account, yet the option is not changable due to "This setting is managed by your administrator". Is there any fix to this?

  2. Windows Defender automatically disabled

    Hi Ahmad,

    Thank you for responding.

    I suggest you to place the computer in safe mode and check if the Windows Defender works.

    Method 1:

    Step 1: Start computer in safe mode.


    • Type Settings in the search box on the desktop, select
      Settings.

    • Here select Change pc settings and then
      General.

    • Scroll down to Advanced startup, click
      Restart now.

    • Click on Troubleshoot, Advanced options, and Startup Settings.

    • Click Restart, select
      Safe mode and then press Enter.

    Step 2: Try to
    run the Windows Defender in safe mode
    .

    Steps:

    • Press Windows key and type Windows Defender.
    • Right click on it and select Run as Administrator.
    • It may prompts you to enter the password.

    Method 2: If the issue still persists, place the computer in normal mode and check for the Windows Defender services.

    Step 1: Place the computer in normal mode.

    • Press Windows + R keys to open
      Run command.
    • Type msconfig and press
      Enter
      .
    • In the System Configuration
      window, click on General tab.
    • Select Start-up selection as Normal startup, click on Apply and Ok.
    • Follow onscreen instructions.

    Step 2: Once you are in normal mode, I suggest you to check for the
    Windows Defender services.

    • Press Windows + R keys to open
      Run command.
    • Type services.msc and press
      Enter
      .
    • Search for Windows Defender, right click on it and
      start the service.
    • Also, set the Startup type to
      Automatic.
    • Do the same for Windows Defender Network Inspection Service.
    • Now check if you are able to access Windows Defender.

    Hope it helps. Kindly update the status of this issue, we will be happy to help you.

  3. Windows Defender problem

    Hi Ernst,

    To troubleshoot this issue, we suggest that you check the Windows Defender service if it's running. If you are using a third party spyware/malware program, it may disable the Windows Defender service. To do this, please follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows + R key.
    • Type services.msc.
    • Right-click Windows Defender service and click
      Start.

    Let us know the result.
