    My windows defender antivirus is turned off all other components are on. How do I turn on the virus protection? It says it's managed by my organization, but there is no organization. This is my home.

    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

    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."

    Can't turn on Windows Defender Antivirus

    After freshly installing Windows 10 N and doing a few initial restarts to finish all updates, I cannot turn Windows Defender on anymore. After pressing "Turn on now" under Security and Maintenance at Virus protection, I get this message:

    Security and Maintenance can't turn on Windows Defender Antivirus. Please try again later.

    I tried disabling the "Turn off Windows Defender Antivirus" in policy editor, but that did not solve the problem. I also can't even open the Windows Defender Security Centre and I haven't installed any other antivirus.
