    Is Windows Defender Adequate


    Is that considered adequate for a real basic user? I rarely visit any 'odd' sites, dont open
    'odd' emails, limited basic surfing, reading news, etc. But the other day, doing usual stuff, I got "this computer is blocked", do not try to restart. It said windows support/security/msft edge, server learntopurchase.site asking for username and password. a number to call for help 1-855-618-4111. Looked official. I tried restarting and shutting down few times anyway, but it still popped up and froze almost everything. Got all flustered, can't even recall how I got out of it, was tempted to call the 'help' number shown, but thought it might be another slam/fake.

    Is Windows Defender adequate enough to cancel a subscription to an antivirus previously purchased and is on auto pay for renewal?

  3. Windows Defender problem

    Hi Ernst,

    To troubleshoot this issue, we suggest that you check the Windows Defender service if it's running. If you are using a third party spyware/malware program, it may disable the Windows Defender service. To do this, please follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows + R key.
    • Type services.msc.
    • Right-click Windows Defender service and click
      Start.

    Let us know the result.
