    4. Right click this file and select permissions

    5. Press Advanced

    6. Where it says owner press change

    7. Change the owner to your username

    8. Now press apply then ok

    9. Select Full Control from the permissions menu

    (click the Widnows Defender folder)

    10. Find the value DisableAntiSpyware and DisableAntiVirus and set these values to 0

    (explaination: double click each and where the 1 is put 0 and press ok)

    11. Open services.msc

    12. Find Windows Defender

    13. There should be 2 services: Windows Defender Service and Windows Defnder Netwrok
