  1. Virus & Thread Protection Icon is not available


    Hello,I had a Norton Deluxe installed on my window 11. I didn't want to renew it, so I uninstalled it and went to enable my Virus & Thread Protection in my Windows Security. Surprisingly, there is no Icon for that in my security section!I attached a photo of my panel. Any idea?Is it safe not having Windows Virus Protection? Should I renew my Norton membership?

    :)

  2. Cannot turn on Windows Defender virus protection

    I had the same sort of symptoms. In the Windows Security Center, under Virus and threat protection, it said "Your virus & threat protection is managed by your organization."

    I note you mentioned the Registry Keys under HKLM/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows Defender. Nice spotting, but it seems like there is another key that is causing the problem for some users.

    Steps to a solution:

    1. Press the Windows key and type "regedit"
    2. On the regedit icon that appears, right-click and select Run as Administrator.
    3. Navigate to the folder located at HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender (You can paste this into the address box at the top of the window, or navigate manually using the side directory structure)
    4. In this folder, there are probably two keys. Right-click and Delete the DisableAntiSpyware key.
    5. Exit regedit, and return to the Windows Defender settings screen (refresh it if necessary). Windows Defender should have the scan options available and working.

    Solution adapted from here, with a much more detailed solution here.
