    Windows Defender - Virus and Threat Protection - Threat service has stopped


    Hi,


    I recently had malware on my pc and windows defender was unable to remove it. I used some malware removers (rogue killer, unhackme and awdcleaner) and got rid of the malware. But in the process I think I also removed MsMpeng.exe which if the exe file of windows defender I guess but in some cases it is also virus disguised as windows defender so I had to remove it too. I uninstalled the malware removers but the Virus and Threat Protection wont start. It constantly displayed the error "Threat service has stopped. Restart it now." and when I restart it, it gives an unknown error. I am attaching some screenshots.
    What can I do to run the Virus and threat protection service again?

    There seems to have been a hiccup in the Patch Tuesday updates that might need to be resolved with some unconventional methods of restarting the Threat Service (Windows Defender Antivirus Service):

    Virus and threat protection has stopped and will not restart, Windows 10 ver 1709, antimalware client ver 4.12.16299.15 . SuperAntiSpyware installed.

    I have tried most of the suggestions from the support pages, all have been ineffective. Any suggestions
