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.

How do i fix error ox800106ba


Hi Anon,
The 0x800106ba error may occur after Windows Defender is updated due to the computer's inability to update the Windows Defender firewall. It may not have applicable permissions needed for the update, or it may not have the files necessary for updating itself.

The Fix

Set Windows Defender to Automatic - You can set the Windows Defender service to Automatic, Disabled or Manual. Setting it to automatic might solve the problem. Follow these steps:
  1. Click Start > type services in the Search box > click Services in the Programs list.
  2. If you are asked for a Password before you continue, then enter the password > click Continue.
  3. Double-click Windows Defender, and click Automatic in the start-up box > click OK.
Uninstall and reinstall Windows Defender - If the first procedure did not help resolve the problem, try un-installing and then reinstalling Windows Defender. Due to the fact that Windows Defender is a Windows component, we will use AppWiz to un-install it from the computer. Follow these steps:
  1. Press Windows Key + R > type appwiz.cpl > Press Enter
  2. Click Windows Defender > click Remove
  3. Follow the prompts to uninstall Windows Defender

Let me know how you go!

Sir pl tl me that whch antivirus is suitable for window 8


Windows 8 includes an automatically loaded updated version of Windows Defender
which is a full antivirus based on Microsoft Security Essentials.
(Windows Defender
for XP, Vista, and Windows 7 was only antispyware.)
So if you upgrade the protection
is automatic and is on by default at installation.

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.

Can't turn on windows defender


Make sure you don't have any other virus program running such as Norton, Mcafee, AVG, etc. If you do then that will stop windows defender from turning on. If you do have any virus programs running you'll have to uninstall them before turning on Windows Defender.

I need to stop this message from cyber defender from poping up on my computer


  1. Run Windows Defender from Start Menu.
  2. Click on Tools button. windows-defender-tools.jpg
  3. Then click on Options link under “Tools and Settings” section. windows-defender-options.jpg
  4. Scroll down the “Options” page, and uncheck the check boxes of the following two settings: Use real-time protection (recommended) under “Real-time protection options”
    disable-vista-windows-defender.jpg Use Windows Defender under “Administrator options”
    uninstall-windows-defender.jpg Note that both options MUST be unchecked for the Windows Defender service in Windows Vista to be completely stopped. Else, only real-time protection is disabled.
  5. Click on Save button.
  6. A “Windows Defender is turned off” dialog message will appear, confirming that Windows Defender no longer runs. Once the Windows Defender is disabled, it’s sort of been uninstalled too, as any attempt to run the program will bring up “Windows Defender is turned off dialog window and unable to proceed to Windows Defender main window anymore. windows-defender-off.jpg

How to disable Windows Defender


On your own head be it, Open w/defender then goto TOOLS - OPTIONS & uncheck all the boxes.
Then goto w/Firewall and ensure defender is not in use there. By disabling defender you are also interfearing with microsoft updates for other programes other than just defender. Remember vista is still a baby and is constantly being updated,new service packs are being created day by day to improve the "ultimate operating system" lol yeah right. I disabled mine last year and had nothing but trouble.firewall wouldnt let things in/out ,internet kept crashing.I eventually had to uninstall the nightmare that is NORTON anti virus. and find a program that would work well along side defender and the one i recomend is AVG. its free,easy and defender loves it.Defender is a major part to the whole windows operating system.I dont think you can fully disable it as you will find out eventually.
