Yes Defender is automatically installed with Windows 8/ 8.1 versions. Go to the SEARCH command and type Defender in the command line. It will appear and from there execute the option and it will start. You can PIN that to the lower bar if you wish.

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.

I want to install BitDefender antivirus but errors this : [BitDefender2013 cant automatically uninstall Norton, we recommended that u manually uninstall this program and run BitDefender installation again...


Try to switch on the pc in safe mode and go to control panel and find the Add or Remove program feature and uninstall norton. If that route does work. Then try this one.... switch on the pc (Not in safe mode) then get the same norton antivirus that is installed on your pc on a cd or on a flash drive. Run it on your computer (install). Then there is going to be a page that brings options like Remove, Repair or Modify, then you can select Remove from the options and click next. Make sure that when you do this, your internet is disconnected. I hope this will be able to remove and uninstall norton. Restart the computer and the install Bit Defender. Good luck

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.

Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click Add/Remove Programs
Select Windows Defender
Click to "remove" it
Restart your computer
Download from http://www.microsoft.com/antispyware
and install the latest version, and let it update.

If it still happens, you may have a computer-virus that is "disabling" Windows Defender everytime you restart.

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
