    Hi there. I have problem in my laptop. Windows Defender considers my application to be a virus. For example, when I open the Steam, a warning sign always appears with a code 0xc0000005. So, if I want to open the application I have to add that apllication to Exclusions in Windows Defender or I reinstall aplication.Windows Defender is to over protective [​IMG]

    Windows defender real time protection cant be turned on.

    Go to Security and Maintenance, look in 'Security' and see what program is listed under Virus Protection. Windows Defender will not be enabled and functioning properly if there is a program other than Windows Defender listed.

    You tried all suggestions in my previous post and Windows Defender “real time protection”
    still will not turn on?

    Did you try everything suggested in Problems
    starting Windows Defender in Windows 8/8.1/10
    to include (but not limited to) running SFC, scanning for malware and running the software removal tools for any security software (AVG,
    McAfee, Norton, whatever) that may have previously been on the computer followed by a reboot? List of
    anti-malware product removal tools

    Windows Defender is to over protective

    Windows Defender Real-time Protection will not turn on

    Did you follow the steps recommended in Solutions : Support



    How about the steps recommended at http://www.bitdefender.com/uninstall/



    Try running the removal tools for any security program that you previously used on the computer and be sure to reboot after using each tool. See
    List of
    anti-malware product removal tools




    Go to Security and Maintenance, look in 'Security' and see what program is listed under Virus Protection. Windows Defender will not be enabled if there is a program other than Windows Defender listed.



    Have you tried the steps recommended in Problems
    starting Windows Defender in Windows 8/8.1/10
    ?

    For further detailed information suggest you review the reply of quietman7 in
    this thread: Windows Defender.

    “The inability to turn on Windows Defender 8/10 is typically the result of having a third-party anti-virus installed or failure to remove it properly (completely). Since Windows 8/10 Defender includes anti-virus protection,
    it is disabled during the installation of another anti-virus program. If a trial anti-virus (i.e. McAfee, Norton, etc) came preinstalled on your computer or you installed one, Windows
    Defender will be turned off
    (disabled). Windows Defender recognizes the install and automatically disables itself when other anti-virus products are used to avoid conflicts. Windows Defender will remain
    disabled until that anti-virus software has been completely uninstalled
    . In some cases, you may need to download and run the anti-virus vendor's clean up tool to remove any remaining remnants.


    After removal of the third party anti-virus, Windows 8/10 Defender needs to be activated if you choose to use it. When uninstalling the third-party anti-virus Defender should automatically turn itself on but sometimes you may receive a message
    indicating your system has no protection...click here to turn on Windows Defender. If not, and Defender remains disabled, you will need to manually turn it on.


    If that is not the case in your situation, check to make sure the Windows Defender service
    is started
    .


    Sometimes it may take a couple of computer reboots after performing the above steps to ensure Windows Defender is up and running properly.”
