  2. Turning on spyware and virus protection

    I have Windows 10 and have been advised that both my spyware and virus protections are not turned on. I have tried to turn them on but to no avail. I do not have any competing protection installed on my computer. Please advise as to how to proceed.

  3. Turning on spyware and virus protection

    Hello,

    I realize the inconvenience you are experiencing with Windows 10. I will certainly help you.


    Windows Defender is the default real-time (always on) protection program in Windows 8, 8.1 and 10.

    If there are any third party security software installed, then Windows Defender will get disabled automatically.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it help:


    • Open Settings by either clicking on the Settings icon on the Start menu or simultaneously pressing Windows and I keys.

    • Click on Update & Security.

    • Click on Windows Defender, and on the left right side, turn on.

    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.

    Thank you.

    Why virus and thread protection turns off automatically?

    How can I turn off virus protection?

    Hello! I am an Independent Advisor, I would love to help you out!

    I would suggest to only turn off virus protection for a short duration such as during the installation of an app that can't be installed otherwise.

    The steps to turn off windows defender are:

    1. Select Start button > Settings > Update & Security > Windows Security > Virus & threat protection > virus & threat protections settings

    2. Switch Real-time protection to Off. Note that scheduled scans will continue to run. However, files that are downloaded or installed will not be scanned.
