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.

How to fix windows defender for free


The Windows Defender software constantly scans your computer for threats such as spyware that may slow down your computer or try to steal personal information. If the software wasn't installed properly or is conflicting with other programs running on your machine, Windows Defender may not work correctly. To repair the software you either need to download the latest update available for the program, or you need to completely uninstall and reinstall Windows Defender.

Restart your computer's operating system. Double-click the "Windows Defender" icon in the system tray at the lower-right end of the screen. Click the question mark icon at the top of the Windows Defender screen and choose "Check for Updates." Select "Continue" if you are running Windows Vista. Wait for the updates to finish installing and click "Scan." Click "Stop Scan" if the problem persists. Click the question mark icon again and select "Exit Windows Defender." Click "Yes" to confirm you want to close the software. Open the "Start" menu screen and select "Control Panel." Select "Uninstall a Program" in Windows 7 or Windows Vista, or instead choose "Add or Remove Programs" in Windows XP. Click the "Windows Defender" entry and select "Uninstall." Choose "Yes" and restart the computer after the program is removed. Navigate to the Windows Defender installation webpage (see Below). http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=435BFCE7-DA2B-4A6A-AFA4-F7F14E605A0D&displaylang=en&mg_id=10134 Click "Download" and double-click the Windows Defender installation file when it downloads to your hard drive. Go through the onscreen installation instructions. Open the "Start" menu and choose "All Programs." Select "Windows Defender." Click "Scan" to start a new scan for malicious software. Hope this helps

I have a problem trying to turn on windows defender on my pc.. i try a few diferent ways but no luck.. can someone help with a solution that works for sure yhank s


At the startup of Windows XP, you may see an error that says "Unable to Start Windows Defender service". This issue occurs, if some of the registry entries are corrupted. Restarting the service from the service console may also prompt the same error.

To resolve this issue, you may need to uninstall and reinstall the Windows Defender. Follow the below mentioned steps:

1. Click Start, Control Panel.
2. Click Add or Remove Programs.
3. Click Windows Defender, and click Remove.

This will uninstall Windows Defender. You can download and reinstall the updated version from the following link:

Hope this helps!!! Let me know if you need more help

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 have PC Mightymax on my computor how do I get rid of it its bothers me.


Download Windows Defender, install it, and then run it. Go to Microsoft Download Center for the download. PC MightyMax can be classified as fake and useless diagnostic tool, because it can be difficult to exit without purchasing the full version of this product. It seems that PC Mighty Max was design to periodically display pop-up windows and distracting alerts in order to scare users hopping that they will buy this worthless application.
