    im not able to turn on Real time security in my windows 10


    hi,

    I have tried several times to put on my windows real time security even after updating to the latest version as advised in the first step.

    I am getting a windows alert that "windows is trying to change security setting to which I click allow but still the real time security isn't turning on.

    As advised I had installed Avast uninstall program which started my laptop in safe mode but was asking for a password which I did not have so I rebooted it back to windows os and uninstalled it.

    pl advise.

    thnks and reg

    :)

    How do I turn off real -time protection?

    Hi Rahul,

    If you have Windows 10, you are getting the latest antivirus protection with Windows Defender. Windows Defender actively helps in protecting your PC from malware (malicious software), viruses, and security threats. Windows Defender uses real-time protection.

    To turn Windows Defender real-time protection on or off, follow the steps below:

    • Select the Start button, then select Settings >
      Update & Security.
    • Select Windows Defender, then turn Real-time protection
      on or off.
    If the on /off button is greyed out, refer to the answer of José Antonio
    Pontón Posada CEO on this thread for troubleshooting steps.

    Let us know if you have other concerns.

    Unable to turn on Windows Defender real time protection


    Hi guys, I'm a bit desperate here right now. *Confused

    I have the same problem that this guy over here. I'm running Windows 10 Home x64, version 1607, build 14393.0.

    I had to restore the PC to a previous point because I ****ed up some drivers. Then my AV (Bitdefender Free) started having some issues (they gui didn't display correctly) so I decided to uninstall it and just go with Windows Defender.

    The problem is I can't get it to work... I get a notification in the Action Center saying to turn on the virus protection, when I click it, Windows Defender goes green(PC status: protected, Real time protection: on) for a second and then goes yellow again (PC status: Windows Defender is OFF, Real time protection: Handled by another AV program) and I get the notification again. If instead of clicking the notification I click "Turn on" on the Windows Defender gui, Windows opens another window, "Apps & Features" in settings, like asking me to uninstall the other, nonexistent AV.

    Now, I've tried a lot of things...


    • Of course, I have completely uninstalled Bitdefender. I used the official tool provided by them for this. There is nothing in the registry by bitdefender nor any file or folder by that name in my PC.

    • I have tried every step listed here.

    • I have tried to install another AV (Avast) and the uninstall it to see if this would "reset" somehow windows defender. (Nope.)


    • I have run MBAM and nothing pops-up

    In HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender there is noDisableAntiSpyware key. But in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Defender there is a DisableAntiSpyware key and its value is 0. (Not sure if this is important but wanted to give you the info.)

    Anyone has any idea? Right now I'm thinking of downloading another AV or just go without any and be done with it. *Huh
