  1. Can't activate Windows Defender. Windows 10 Home


    This problem is getting on my nerves, and I am also afraid that I might be infected with something on my PC.
    So, I cannot turn on Real Time Protection, so basically I don't have any form of protection overall, I cannot perform any scan, and when I click ''Protection History, it crashes. It also says that ''This setting is managed by your administrator'', but I am the only user, and the admin of the computer.

    When I've encountered this, I had Avast installed, but usually I could've used Defender in the same time, now it doesn't even show Avast and Malwarebytes in the ''Manage Providers'' tab. I did various scans with these 2 engines, and also CCleaner, which found many broken registry items and stuff like that, which were, deleted, and trojans - quarantined, but the problem is still there.

    I've also tried to do the methods using the cmd prompt, nothing, I tried the Registry Editor method, deleted ''DisableAntiSpyWare'', nothing.


    Previous problems that I've had yesterday may be linked to this: I couldn't put my PC in Sleep, I couldn't update Windows, I've solved those, I have no idea how, I don't even remember, I am losing my mind. Please help

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Windows Defender Released

    Microsoft has released the final version of its Windows Defender anti-spyware utility. Windows Defender is a product of the Microsoft acquisition of GIANT Software. Previously known as Windows AntiSpyware, after a two years beta period it's now available for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 under the name Windows Defender. Windows Defender incorporates Real-Time Protection to monitor systems for spyware activity, automated spyware removal with scheduled scans, full integration with Internet Explorer 7.0 and automatic spyware definition updates from Microsoft. Windows Defender is available freely to all customers running a genuine copy of Windows. Microsoft has also announced that customers will each be allowed to report two support incidents for free with Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.
