    BlueSound OS conflict with Windows Defender

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that Windows Defender blocks BluOS app. It is very unusual that Windows Defender blocks the app. However, I would suggest you to try adding the app to the Exclusion list of Windows Defender and see if that helps.



    To add the application to the Exclusion list, please refer the steps mentioned in the article

    Add an exclusion to Windows Security
    .



    Let us know how it goes.



    Regards,

    windows defender & security center services keep turning off


    Are you running any other AV or did you have one running in the past? If you didn't use an uninstaller for the AV, then the remnants of it could be causing the problem. Normally any time you install an AV it disables Defender by default.

    If you are getting any error codes please list those, that will be helpful in helping you.

    As torre suggested, might be a good idea to do a reset or even a reinstall.

    Reset Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Windows 10 - Clean Install - Windows 10 Forums

    There are also some suggestions listed here:

    Windows Defender Not On

    Hi,



    Welcome to Microsoft Community. Your interest in Windows 10 is much appreciated.



    I would suggest you to try the below methods and check:

    Method 1:

    I would suggest you to run virus scan to make sure the computer is free from virus.

    The Microsoft Safety Scanner is a free downloadable security tool that provides on-demand scanning and helps remove virus, spyware, and other malicious software. It works with your existing antivirus software.

    http://www.microsoft.com/security/scanner/en-us/default.aspx



    Method 2:

    Turn the Defender on. Follow the below steps:

    • In search, type Defender.
    • Now make the option ON by moving the slider accordingly.


    Method 3: Run the SFC.

    Follow the below steps:

    • Open Command Prompt.
    • Select “Run as Administrator”.
    • Type “sfc /scannow” without quotes and hit
      Enter.
    Now check for the issue.



    Keep us posted if you face any issues on windows in future. We will be glad to help you.
