    windows defender is not working


    Hi,


    when I am trying to open virus and threat protection, it is showing an error unexpected error, we ran into a problem, please try again. Later when I checked and got to know that 'disable anti-spyware registry is missing'. I tried to get it back using gpedit.msc command but I am not getting it back.


    Could anyone help me out?


    Thanks,

    Ankita

    :)

  2. Windows Defender Not Working in Windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for using Windows 10.

    Sorry for the delayed reply. I suggest you to Set Windows Defender to Automatic - You can set the Windows Defender service to Automatic, Disabled or Manual. Setting it to automatic might solve the problem. Follow these
    steps:

    • Click Start > type services in the Search box > click Services in the Programs list.
    • Search for Windows defender.
    • Double-click Windows Defender, and click Automatic in the start-up box > click OK.
    Also, follow the below mentioned steps and check:

    • Open the Task manager. Here’s a tip: Press CTRL+Shift+ESC.
    • Click File > Run New Task
    • Make sure you have a check mark beside “Create this task with administrative privileges”
    • Type CMD
    • Type the following 2 commands at the CMD prompt:

      dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

      sfc /scannow

    • Close the CMD window
    Keep us posted on the status of the issue and we’ll be glad to help.

    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.
