    Windows Defender Missing

    Hey there, just noticed i missing windows defender?

    What happened?

    • Used to have malwarebytes installed, but removed it. Decided to rely only on microsoft and their defender/security intelligence features.
    • Also have installed iObit Uninstaller and it reports too there is no antivirus installed on my laptop.
    • Cant find windows defender folder in registry. Watched few online solutions of how to find and see if defender running or is up-to-date and all videos had files in registry editor -> windows defender folder, as you can see in screen shot I dont
    • Cant find in Local group policy editor too. Microsoft Defender Antivirus folder present but also no Windows Defender folder

    Whats going on? Where is my defender lol. I run win10 pro for workstations.

    Freaking windows yo, but used to him.
    Kindly let me know guys
    Thanks
