  1. Constant Windows Defender Issues


    I keep encountering issues with Windows Defender. I do not have any other antivirus installed, and after about one day of working, I now get this screen below every time I open it. How can we fix it? It only seems to do this with my Surface Pro X. All my other computers, work fine.All and any help would be much appreciated.

    :)

    We suggest you to avoid installing any cleaner or anti-virus software that may interrupt the function of Windows Defender. Make sure that Windows Defender is always on. To do this follow these steps:

    • On the Start menu, type Windows Defender and hit enter.
    • Click Settings.
    • Turn Real-time protection on.
    We also recommend you to install the latest update for Windows Defender.
