  1. Windows Defender


    My wi-fi has to be reset several times a day, windows defender keeps disconnecting it. sometimes the troubleshoot works to fix it and other and most times NOT. It keeps disabling wifi and putting computer in airplane mode, even when I am online not just at restart. Lately my computer has been freezing and at restart my computer gets a blue screen with a DRIVER_STATE_FAILURE code, restarts then all is fine temporarily. All other devices on the network are fine so I know its not a modem issue just this one DELL All in one computer

    :)

  2. 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.

    • On the Start menu, type Windows Defender and hit enter.
    • Click Settings.
    • Turn Real-time protection on.
    We also recommend you to install the latest update for Windows Defender.
