    Enabling Microsoft Virus & Threat Protection after uninstalling McAffee


    The "Virus & threat protection" screen says I am doing this myself ie not using Microsoft. I was using McAffee but uninstalled it. How do I enable the Microsoft virus and threat protection please.

  3. Virus And Threat Protection is not Enable

    Currently i'm using Windows 10

    In my Windows Defender the Virus And Threat Protection is not been enabled and it is showing to restart

    when im clicking on restart button for virus and threat protection

    it is showing the message "ENABLE CONTROLLED ACCESS FOLDER OR EDIT PROTECTION"

    i have also tried the command gpedit.msc but it also not executing.

    Is there any solution for this problem.

  4. Enabling Microsoft Virus & Threat Protection after uninstalling McAffee

    Windows Defender and McAffee

    sadly not...I uninstalled the programme but there is a second item listed in programmes which seems to be an empty file, just a banner for McAffee LIvesafe asking me to update my subscription. When I try to uninstall that I get a pop up asking which file
    I want...but there is no option to highlight and nothing listed. I can't delete it through right click either. I've restarted twice and still have Defender saying I need to update Virus protection and Firewall through McAffee....

    Wondering if I should install the McAffee uninstaller as someone suggested above??
