    Windows Defender shuts down


    For some reason, yesterday and again today, Defender has turned OFF for no reason and I can't get it restarted without a restart. Then it will seem to start normally only to shut down shortly thereafter. The only change to my PC was been a Windows auto update KB4549951

  2. Shutting Down Windows Defender for good.

    I need to shut off Windows Defender for good.

    I can't have two softwares doing the same job twice, been using Norton since 2000/1 and continue to use it. I need to have Windows Defender shut down for good.

    Any suggestions?

  3. Windows Defender problem

    Hi Ernst,

    To troubleshoot this issue, we suggest that you check the Windows Defender service if it's running. If you are using a third party spyware/malware program, it may disable the Windows Defender service. To do this, please follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows + R key.
    • Type services.msc.
    • Right-click Windows Defender service and click
      Start.

    Let us know the result.
