  1. Windows Defender is stuck in business mode due to virus


    Hi, my device is a Dell Inspiron 3650. I have a major problem with Windows defender. I don't know when this happened, but I believe a virus hacked Windows Defender, and now it is stuck in business mode and I can't get it out of that state without my "administrator's" permission. The thing is, I'm a home user, so I can't do anything since I don't have a business administrator. I need a way to reset Windows defender if I can

    :)

    Stuck in safe mode in windows 10

    Safe mode is intended to help fix most, if not all problems within an operating system, it's not good if we got stuck on it. To correct this, we suggest that you follow the steps below to exit out of Safe mode:

    • Open Run command by pressing Windows key + R
      keys on the keyboard and type msconfig in the command box and press
      Enter.
    • Under General tab, put a check on Normal Startup option.
    • Reboot the system and check if the changes are effective.

    Let us know if you are able to exit out of Safe mode with these steps.

  3. Windows Defender Not On

    Hi,



    Welcome to Microsoft Community. Your interest in Windows 10 is much appreciated.



    I would suggest you to try the below methods and check:

    Method 1:

    I would suggest you to run virus scan to make sure the computer is free from virus.

    The Microsoft Safety Scanner is a free downloadable security tool that provides on-demand scanning and helps remove virus, spyware, and other malicious software. It works with your existing antivirus software.

    Microsoft Safety Scanner Download



    Method 2:

    Turn the Defender on. Follow the below steps:

    • In search, type Defender.
    • Now make the option ON by moving the slider accordingly.


    Method 3: Run the SFC.

    Follow the below steps:

    • Open Command Prompt.
    • Select “Run as Administrator”.
    • Type “sfc /scannow” without quotes and hit
      Enter.
    Now check for the issue.



    Keep us posted if you face any issues on windows in future. We will be glad to help you.
