  1. get a message to turn on windows defender


    so now i'm getting a notice to turn on windows defender when i click it i get another message page not available but i'm the admin and sign in as admin. so in looking at the security page i don't see antivirus in there but i do see defender and it is turned on. so anyone know why i get that message and why this ps thinks i;m not the admin. thanks windows defender turned on - - - Updated - - - ok so i go to windows security page and i see security is off and i can't turn it on but as you saw above defender is on. my other laptop has security on and defender on. so do i have to download defender? so i go to updates and this is what i see the second image shows defender off but i can't seem to get it to turn on. and the 2nd image that shows virus protection turned off i can't turn on. and i get a error for trying to install. the last shows an error and trouble shooter will not run to see what it is. so any ideas here? last night i ran restore because the max for my browser was not working and now that works but now i have these issues.

    :)

  2. WINDOWS DEFENDER is turned off

    Hi Ahmed,

    Since you're not able to turn on Windows Defender as well, we'd like to know if you have made any changes recently prior to this issue. In the meantime, you may follow the steps below on how to turn on Windows Defender manually:

    • Type Windows Defender in the Search bar and press
      Enter.
    • Go to Settings and make sure that the Turn on real-time protection recommended option is turned on.
    Same thing with the other members who are having the same issue, we suggest that you check if the service was setup to
    Automatic in the Services option. Please follow the steps that we've provided last
    September 3, 2017.

    Let us know how if you were able to turn it on properly by changing the Startup type to Automatic.

  3. windows defender turned off.....................

    @atramsuraj: You can
    read this post
    and follow the given steps to re-enable your Windows Defender. And, by the way:

    • What OS are you running?
    • Are you also using 3rd-party security program? If so, please consider disabling it, as some could turn off Windows Defender automatically.

    Windows Defender of Windows 10 stoped working and is not turning on

    Hello NasirMahmood1,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community forum.

    Have you installed any third party anti-virus software?

    Step 1: Turn Windows Defender Service On.

    Initially, we need to check with the status of
    Windows Defender Service which might be stopping the defender to turn on.

    • Press Windows key + R and type
      services.msc and press Enter key.
    • Search for Windows Defender Service and check if it has been started.
    • Right click on Windows Defender Service and click on
      Restart.

    Step 2: Turn On Windows Defender Antivirus using Group Policy.

    As you are on Windows 10 Pro build, I would suggest
    gpedit.msc
    settings from the following link and set it to Disabled or not configured to
    turn on real time protection setting. Follow the steps mentioned under
    Disable real-time protection from the article-
    Enable and configure antivirus always-on protection and monitoring
    .

    Hope it helps.

    Regards,

    Mala S
