  1. Windows Defender's Real-time protection prevents me from almost everything


    I've been having a major problem with Windows Defender's Real-time protection for the past few days. When I disable it everything works perfectly, but when it turns back on the following things occur:



    -Windows becomes VERY slow and the cursor starts to lag

    -Windows Sandbox crashes when I try to run it

    -Can't save, edit or create any documents (Notepad, Word, etc..)

    -Can't create ANY new files

    -Can't download any files from the internet. (Firefox won't even open for example)

    -GTA San Andreas can't run at all, if Real-time protection turns on while it's running it won't crash, but I can't save the game anymore even if I turn it off seconds later

    -Source engine games will start to lag like hell

    -No software or game is able to update



    Some additional info: This didn't start happening after an update. My PC is completely virus/malware free, I don't use any shady programs or websites, I also have a genuine copy of Windows 10. I don't get any error codes, most programs just freeze up and crash without saying anything. I also can't find any crash dumps or crash reports, since my computer is blocked from creating new files. I tried to disable Windows Defender permanently with regedit but it still turns back on like nothing happened.

    Windows defender real time protection cant be turned on.

    Go to Security and Maintenance, look in 'Security' and see what program is listed under Virus Protection. Windows Defender will not be enabled and functioning properly if there is a program other than Windows Defender listed.

    You tried all suggestions in my previous post and Windows Defender “real time protection”
    still will not turn on?

    Did you try everything suggested in Problems
    starting Windows Defender in Windows 8/8.1/10
    to include (but not limited to) running SFC, scanning for malware and running the software removal tools for any security software (AVG,
    McAfee, Norton, whatever) that may have previously been on the computer followed by a reboot? List of
    anti-malware product removal tools

    Hi,

    Windows Defender is built-in to Windows 10. Turning on the Windows Defender will help to protect your PC by scanning for malware, viruses and security threats. It uses real-time protection to scan everything you download or run on your PC.

    1. Click on the Start Menu and choose Settings.

    2. In the Setting window, select Update and Security.

    3. In Update and Security -> Windows Defender
