    Windows Defender and Spybot/Malawarebytes

    Try uninstalling Spybot and Malwarebytes.

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/getstarted-protect-your-pc

    On Windows 8.1/10 when a third party antimalware program (such as McAfee, Norton, etc) is installed the Windows Defender (WD) program is disabled.

    If you wish to use WD on Win 8.1/10 you must uninstall any third party antimalware program that may be on the computer (or was previously on the computer before it was upgraded to Win 10), run the appropriate software removal
    tool and reboot the computer. See List
    of anti-malware product removal tools


    WD should then be enabled though you might need to restart WD in Security Services.

    For further information see Problems starting Windows Defender in Windows 8/8.1/10
