  1. Microsoft Defender Antivirus turned off


    I don't have the option to enable Microsoft Defender Antivirus in my Windows Security settings.I've poked around on the internet and nothing has yielded results. I've gone through and given it a scan with Malwarebytes, made sure that security settings are enabled in the Services, I do have an odd notice under my Virus and Threat Protection tab stating that "Your Virus & threat protection is managed by your organization." though.I've also followed some instructions to run Command Prompt lines to scan and repair the computer in various ways but I haven't been able to fix this issue on my own

    Microsoft Defender Antivirus turned off

    Defender AntiVirus

    There are 4 options under Defender. Two refer to AntiVirus; AntiVirus Network Inspection Service & AntiVirus Services. Under Startup Type these two are listed as manual and the Status column said Inspection Service is running. When I clicked on the Start
    button in Properties, I got an immediate message: "Win.. Def.. Anti.. Serv.. on local comp.. started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs."
