How do you turn on windows defender


Hi,

You can turn Windows Defender on or off from Control Panel > Windows Defender. If you have a program already monitoring for spyware then Windows Defender will turn off, this avoids any conflicts between the 2 programs, most anti-virus programs now come with a built in anti-spyware so when you install one of them Windows Defender turns off and you won't be able to turn it on again unless you either disable the anti-spyware part of the AV or uninstall the AV.

It is licensed by Microsoft. You should download it onto a flash drive, and then simply connect the flash drive to the laptop. Run the program after installing it.

Responding very slowly. I recently installed Defender Pro.


This is because Defender Pro is a malware - a scareware to be more precise = a program that scares you with false claims of infections on your pc so you buy it while itself is a trojan (a virus that gives control the total control over your pc over to other criminals). 
Since by now the damage is extensive and almost impossible to overcome the best solution for you is to reinstall Windows and this time install immediately a good antivirus like Avast.

How to rid my computer of viruses


Use any Anti-virus scanner.
To start with you can use any trialware version of prominent anti-virus companies, like
norton
mcafee
bit defender
avg

you can try download.com to find free and trial based anti-virus programs.

Updating your virus scanner definitions regularly would minimize chances of getting infected again if your virus scanner is good.

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

I did a quick search for 'defender pro 2008' and saw tons upon tons of complaints of it causing many problems. I would uninstall the software and use something else. A program with so many bugs will probably do more damage if you install and run it.

For anti-virus I would suggest AVG Free, as it is free and works better then those big name brands with their bloated software.
Your windows firewall should be good enough for the basic PC user.
To remove spyware/malware check out another free program called SpyBot Search & Destroy.

To remove Defender, go to your Windows Control panel and click on Add/Remove programs.

There seems to a problem with your win defender turn off defender and try to install the anti virus software as when you have one anti virus or a firewall running it will not allow another anti virus to be installed. Also check if you have any other anti virus installed
