How do I turn on windows defender in win 8?


Hello Donna,
if you install a third-party anti-virus/anti-spyware software, Windows Defender turns off automatically by itself. So, before turning on Windows Defender, please be sure that you have completely uninstalled the other anti-virus solution from your computer. Now, get your computer restarted and Defender will be turned on by itself.

After restarting if Defender does not turn on automatically, go to Start menu, type Windows Defender and press enter to execute Windows Defender. If the status shows that you have to turn it on manually, do so and you are done.

Please let us know and we are here to help you!


Regards, Mrityunjay.

Tip

Secure Your Windows PC For Free


With the online holiday buying season upon us, the most important thing to remember is computer security. Each day millions of threats cycle through the Internet, most of which harm computers and home networks. These threats hunt for credit card numbers, social security numbers, and other personal information and can be used against you in the form of identity theft. Here are some tips to help secure your PC and keep your information safe and locked down.

1. Windows Update
This is the number one reason computers fall victim to malicious threats (viruses, spyware, etc.) is not updating the Windows operating system. During the spring of 2009, the virus named "conficker" targeted computers that were not fully updated. To update the Windows, first the computer needs to be connected to the Internet, whether it would be wired or wireless network connection. Then go to Start > Programs > Windows Update. Let Widows Update complete and afterward your computer will be up-to-date.

2. Anti-Virus Program
Some sort of anti-virus software should be the bare minimum for computer security. Not having protection can increase the chances of viruses, trojans, spyware, adware, and identity theft. There are some free as well as paid versions, but for basic web surfing and email free versions will work just fine. Here are some recommended free anti-virus programs.
AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition
Avira Anti-Vir
Avast Home Edition
Microsoft Security Essentials

3. Firewall
A firewall blocks incoming web traffic not requested by the computer user. Firewalls can prevent malware from entering the computer thus fewer viruses and spyware. A great, free firewall program called Comodo can protect your PC and the user can select various security levels for added protection.

4. Windows Defender
Windows Defender is spyware program from Microsoft that is built in to Windows Vista and Windows 7 and as a download for Windows XP, which can be found here. Defender offers protection from spyware, pop-ups, and slow performance. To access Windows Defender, go to Start > Programs > Windows Defender then click the scan button at the top of the window and then remove the threats when complete. Windows Defender is a simple solution to increase computer performance.

5. Encryption
Encryption continues to be a major issue in protecting computer data if it fell into the wrong hands. Many users have huge amounts of information about themselves on their computer including pictures, internet history, email messages, contacts, login usernames and passwords, and much much more. What encryption does is locks the files with a series of numbers and letters making impossible to decode or read for that matter. But the user can read the files with a key and a password which unlocks the files that were encrypted. I recommend using TrueCrypt for encrypting files and works with all versions of Windows.

As for all security software, plan on allowing, at minimum, running all the security programs (anti-virus, firewall, Defender, and more) each week to make sure the computer is protected. It's very easy to secure computers and with a few clicks you even can make it automatic.

If questions arise or need assistance installing or running any of the programs mention above, please feel free to contact me. I will be happy to assist you in any way.

GO INTO START, CLICK ON COMPUTER AND UPDATE YOUR COMPUTER. YOU MAY HAVE TO TURN YOU ANTI-VIRUS, DEFENDER ETC, BACK ON WHICH YOU CAN ALSO DO IN YOUR COMPUTER.

WHEN INSTALLING NEW SOFTWARE, ANTIVIRUS IS USUALLY DISABLED, JUST ENABLE IT...TYPE IN ENABLE ANTI-VIRUS, IT WILL COME UP AND CHOOSE YOUR OPTIONS, YOU'LL HAVE TO DO THIS FOR YOUR FIRE WALL AND DEFENDER IF YOU HAVE THOSE ENABLE ALL OF THEM.

WHEN DONE RESTART, MAKE SURE YOUR PRINTER IS HOOKED UP TO COMPUTER, SO IT CAN BE DETECTED AND INSTALLED WHEN STARTING THE COMPUTER.

IF YOUR COMPUTER DOESN'T DETECT YOUR PRINTER, THAN GO INTO YOUR COMPUTER, CLICK ON ADD PRINTER, EITHER AUTOMATIALLY DETECT, OR ENTER THE INFO OF TYPE OF PRINTER AND WHETHER YOU HAVE THE DISK, INSERT DISK, IF YOU DON'T HAVE DISK, THEN CLICK ALL PRINTER INFO, WHAT BRAND & MODEL CLICK NEXT.

YOU WILL HAVE TO RESTART AGAIN, AFTER INSTALLING YOUR PRINTER, IF THAT IS NECCESSARY! SHOULD BE OK AFTER YOU ENABLE YOUR VIRUS PROTECTION.

HOPE THIS HELP!

sounds like spyware still got thru even with all the anti-virus programs running. Best thing to do is to save all the important data onto an external drive or flash drive and then reformat the drive and reinstall the drivers for the hardware and put the applications that you want back onto the computer. This time only install one anti-virus program onto the computer.

I HAVE A VIRUS THAT WILL NOT LET ME EXECUTE MY PROGRAMS AND KEEP SENDING ME TO ANTI VIRUS PRO SITE PAY


You have fallen for a scam and downloaded the malware that is saying you are infected, when in fact you are only infected with the scam software.

  1. Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, or MBAM, from the following location and save it to your desktop:

    Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Download Link


  2. Once downloaded, close all programs and Windows on your computer, including this one.

  3. Double-click on the icon on your desktop named Download_mbam-setup.exe. This will start the installation of MBAM onto your computer.

  4. When the installation begins, keep following the prompts in order to continue with the installation process. Do not make any changes to default settings and when the program has finished installing, make sure you leave both the Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware checked. Then click on the Finish button.

  5. MBAM will now automatically start and you will see a message stating that you should update the program before performing a scan. As MBAM will automatically update itself after the install, you can press the OK button to close that box and you will now be at the main program as shown below.

  6. On the Scanner tab, make sure the the Perform quick scan option is selected and then click on the Scan button to start scanning your computer

Norton Anti-virus will not launch


If you have access to another computer download avast anti-virus and malwarebytes anti-malware and burn to cd or use a flash drive. Malwarebytes will remove that PC Defender rouge anti-virus software and any other malware you may have,

If you don't have another computer you can download the files to try booting into safe mode with networking. This option should allow you to download and install the programs above,

If your able to download them run anti-malware first. Let t fix what it can. Then install avast anti-virus, when asked if you want to schedule a boot time scan say yes, then when asked to reboot say no and open avast and update it, When prompted to reboot do so.

Hope this helps
