    WINDOWS DEFENDER NOT WORKING - I'VE TRIED EVERYTHING


    A few weeks ago I installed the Avira antivirus, seeing that it did not work I uninstalled it. After this I could not make the Windows Defender work again (it is clear that prior to installing Avira, the WD worked perfectly). Although I try to restart the service (since every time I start the notebook I get a notification saying that I have to activate the Windows firewall), when I enter Windows Security and try to restart it indicates that 'An unexpected error occurred and we have Found a problem. Try again.'.

    Tried all the ways I found in the forums and in Microsoft solutions, and nothing works.

    A list what I already tried:


    1. Creating a new DWORD value (DisableAntiSpyware) and setting it to 0.

    2. Manually downloading the Windows Defender update (every time I run it - normally or as an administrator - it doesn't work, absolutely nothing happens).

    a. Files I downloaded and tried to install: mpam-fe.exe, win10-mpam-feX64.exe.

    3. Updating it through Windows Update (reaches up to 99% but never concludes).

    4. Trigger a definition update for Windows Defender Antivirus using "% ProgramFiles% \ Windows Defender \ MpCmdRun.exe" -SignatureUpdate using prompt.

    5. Downloading and running windefend.reg.

    6. Executing these commands:

    DISM.exe / Online / Cleanup-image / Scanhealth

    DISM.exe / Online / Cleanup-image / Restorehealth

    DISM.exe / online / cleanup-image / startcomponentcleanup

    sfc / scannow

    Which returned errors saying that damaged files were found.

    My operating system is 64bits.

    :)

  3. 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.
