  1. Windows Defender broken


    I am having this problem with my windows defender that I believe might be glitched out/bugged out, I have read tons of threads and suggestions from them, and none have helped. Firstly, on the home screen, it just shows a white blank screen where the contents should be, also I can't change any settings as well, most of them grayed out and the ones that aren't, it doesn't save. When I also search for virus & threat protection from the start menu, it just pops up with a "page not available: Your IT administrator has limited access to some areas of this app, and the item you tried to access is not available. Contact IT helpdesk for more information.".


    And I am on windows 10: Home, version 1803. I am also the administrator on my computer. I have no third party anti-virus installed onto my system as well. I have checked countless times. I do have McAfee WebAdvisor installed onto it but don't know if that could be the cause or not. And to also note, I am having trouble installing windows updates as well, the update is called "Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool X64 - June 2019 (KB890830)" With an error code 0x80070643, and I have troubleshoot the Windows Update as well and says the database has been corrupted and when it fixed it and I try to install again, it somehow gets corrupted again and just goes in a never ending loop, and there is a error code after troubleshooting as well that is 0x80246007, which I think I should include just in case that has something to do with it, I just think it is completely bugged and I looked everywhere for an answer and nothing that could help solve my issue here.

  3. Windows Defender problem

    Hi Ernst,

    To troubleshoot this issue, we suggest that you check the Windows Defender service if it's running. If you are using a third party spyware/malware program, it may disable the Windows Defender service. To do this, please follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows + R key.
    • Type services.msc.
    • Right-click Windows Defender service and click
      Start.

    Let us know the result.
