  1. What part of "OFF" does windows defender not understand


    Morning/Afternoon all

    After now what seems to have been a massive mistake in wiping my PC to start fresh i'm having a massive issue with Windows Defender.

    I use Bullguard as it is the most solid firewall/AV i have used in years, Never had any issues before in telling Defender to go away but seems now it just wants to stick its nose into everything Maybe another 2004 issue??

    Even though in Windows Security - Firewall & Network Protection - Settings - Manage Providers it tells me that Bullguard is on and Defender is off,

    Firewall 1


    i go to Windows Defender with Advanced security screen i see that it is still on. No matter what i change in this screen it reverts back to these settings

    Firewall 2



    The only settings that actually stays is protected network connections - customize - unticked all connections.


    Is there anyway of just telling defender to go away. I don't want to use it, if i did i'd have been using it for years and now its causing chaos with my connections

    Thanks for any advice

    :)

    windows defender keeps shutting itself off

    You cannot uninstall/reinstall Defender – it’s part of the operating system.



    Did you “Go to Security and Maintenance, look in 'Security' and see what program is listed under Virus Protection. Windows Defender will not be enabled and functioning properly if there is a program other than Windows Defender
    listed” as suggested in my previous post? What program is listed?



    Superantispyware sometimes interferes with Windows Defender.



    If you tried all steps in Problems
    starting Windows Defender in Windows 8/8.1/10
    without success you may want to try option two in

    https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/5918-turn-off-windows-defender-windows-10-a.html




    Or



    Try a different AV program (see my first post in this thread) or reset the computer.

    Good luck…

    • What OS are you running?
