    windows defender is used for its update and to stop some programme to load at startup but installing window security essential stops defender to be used. everytime i uninstall security essential and then do my task with defender and then reinstall security
    essential. is this the policy of microsoft.

    DB:5.47:Window Security Essential Stops Window Defender. What Is The Solutiom zm

    MSE and some other Anti Spyware programs purposely disable Windows Defender, as a matter of policy and by design, it is not something that you need to worry about in this case as MSE does the same job (and more)as doesWindows Defender.

    Hi Rajesh,

    Thank you for posting this question on Microsoft Community Forums.

    I see that you want to know if there are any consequences of activating Windows Defender when NPAV total security 2013 is installed.

    We would like to inform you that it is not possible to activate Windows Defender when anti-virus software is installed.

    By design, Windows Defender will automatically get disabled when any anti-virus software is installed.

    I hope this has answered your questions.

    To get into Safe Mode, repeatedly tap the F8 key as the computer is starting up. This will get you to the diagnostic menu. Use your arrow key to select Safe Mode and press the Enter key.

    I don't know what you mean by "window defender automatically run on the wire less or not?". Windows Defender is part of Vista so yes, it would be running if you have Vista on the laptop.

    It's important to run antispyware software whenever you're using your computer. Spyware and other potentially unwanted software can try to install itself on your computer any time you connect to the Internet. It can also infect your computer when you install
    some programs using a CD, DVD, or other removable media . Potentially unwanted or malicious software can also be programmed to run at unexpected times, not just when it is installed.
    Windows Defender alerts you when spyware or potentially unwanted software attempts to install itself or to run on your computer. It also alerts you when programs attempt to change important
    Windows settings.
    When you use Windows Defender, it's important to have up-to-date definitions. Definitions are files that act like an ever-growing encyclopedia of potential software threats.
    Windows Defender uses definitions to determine if software that it detects is spyware or other potentially unwanted software, and then to alert you to potential risks. To help keep your definitions up to date,
    Windows Defender works with Windows Update to automatically install new definitions as they are released.
    You can turn off windows defender , if you are using microsoft security essentials , norton , and other good anti virus program

    DB:3.13:Window Defender Keep Shutting Off p7

    Hello HIsham,

    Windows Defender and Microsoft Essentials are two separate things.

    Windows Defender primarily blocks Malware, while Essentials is a whole suite of Antivirus, Anti-Malware, and Firewall.

    If you have Essentials, then you have little need for Defender and windows will shut it off. Generally speaking it is not good to have two malware or antivirus running as they can conflict with each other and bog down the system performance.

    Hi,
    1. Do you have any other security program running on this computer?
    2. When was the last time these programs were running fine?
    I would suggest disabling windows firewall and uninstalling other security programs installed. I feel that there is a conflict among different programs.
    You may try checking in clean boot state.
    Putting your system in clean boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue. If yes, you may have to contact the program manufacturer for any updates or uninstall and re-install the
    program.
    Refer the following Microsoft KB article for more information on how to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7:

    Most anti-virus programs will disable win defender when you run the installer. If they include a separate firewall they should also disable the firewall when installing theirs. They all are fully aware you canonly run one av or firewallprogram fulltime.

    If you already have installed Bit Defender, you really should uninstall it properly

    DB:3.04:Window Defender fs


    In all systems the installation of an antivirus suite such as McAfee will always disable the built-in software (or in some case ask you to uninstall it), but read on.....

    If this is Windows 8 or 8.1 then that is normal. WD is an antivirus in those systems and therefore would possibly clash with McAfee and actually let infection in as a result if the two were allowed to be on simultaneously.

    In Vista and 7, however, it usually can be turned on as in those systems it is merely anti-malware.

    In XP it is an optional extra download.

    Hi,

    Are you running MSE, AVGor other antivirus/security programs that stop Windows Defender from running?
    If so then Windows Defender is blocked from running by them. McAfee, AVG, and many others do this.
    MSE, and others, include Windows Defender's functions in it so that running it separately would be redundant.

    Hi Keisha – Welcome to Microsoft Answers Community.

    Before you even download and install Microsoft® Security Essentials (MSE),
    I would recommend that you remove any third-party firewall from your PC,
    manually from Control Panel and, download a removal tool and run that
    as well. Once you are done, I recommend that you visit the following page:

    Windows Defender must be disabled on Vista or Windows 7 and removed from Windows XP when you are using Microsoft Security Essentials.
    You should be able to temporarily enable Defender with MSE installed and active on Vista/Win7. MSE protection can be disabled by opening MSE and going to the settings tab, uncheck real time protections. this should not, however, be needed.
    You can manage startup programs by typing MSCONFIG in the Start/Run box on XP or the Search box above the Orb on Vista/7.

    Defender provides protection only for spyware. Security Essentials provides protection for viruses, spyware, worms, rootkits, trojans and, with version 2 in beta, malicious scripts.
    MSE will uninstall Defender on XP, and will disable Defender on Vista/W7.
    If you choose to use MSE, you must uninstall and cleanup all existing realtime antimalware on your PC.

    Hi,

    Are you running MSE or other antivirus/security programs that stop Windows Defender from running?
    If so then Windows Defender is blocked from running by them. McAfee, AVG, and many others do this.
    MSE includes Windows Defender's functions in it so that running it separately would be redundant.

    ------------------------------------------------

    Troubleshooting Windows Defender
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555957

    "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Defender\MsAsCui.exe" is the default Defender folder

    Start - type in Search box - Windows Defender - find at top of list - Right Click on it -
    RUN AS ADMIN

    If no joy use Start - Computer or Windows Explorer to navigate to that folder and create a
    Shortcut to put on Desktop and Start Menu. You can also Right Click any exist shortcuts and
    see if they point to there.

    "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Defender\MsAsCui.exe"

    How to Turn Windows Defender On or Off

    Maybe something hereif needed :

    What is showing/causing the error message? Some security/anitvirus/antispyware products can
    cause this error. Which of those do you use INCLUDING any that your ever had even those
    uninstalled (the remnants can cause issues). McAfee is just an example of what many can do.

    Start - type in Search box - Services - find at top of list - Right Click - Run as Admin

    Windows Defender - set to STARTED and AUTOMATIC

    or set to STOPPED and MANUAL if needed

    DB:2.93:Window Defender And Norton Security x9

    Defender is spyware protection only.

    Do yourself a huge favor, and dump Norton now, before it is too late. Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) is free, and offers excellent anti-malware protection.

    Uninstall Norton with the removal tool in this thread:
    http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/msestart/thread/407bf6da-c05d-4546-8788-0aa4c25a1f91

    Then, restart your PC.

    Then, install MSE from
    www.microsoft.com/security_essentials

    On Windows 7, MSE should disable Defender. If not, you should disable it.

    No anti-malware product (free or paid), or combination of products, will provide 100% protection, 100% of the time.
    To get a perspective of where MSE stands in comparison to other anti-malware products, please review the latest reports found

    here and
    here.

    Awell-protected platform consists of:
    · A fully updated Operating System (including service packs), with Automatic Update
    ON.
    · Updated Third Party Applications
    (Java, Adobe Flash, Adobe Reader, etc)
    · MSE installed for complete anti-malware protection
    · Internet Explorer 8
    default security settings (Reset all zones to default level), with SmartScreen Filter
    ON, and Pop-Up Blocker ON
    · Windows Firewall
    ON
    · User Account Control (UAC) ON

    It is real-time Anti-Malware and it will disable Windows Defender , because you shouldn't run more than one real-time Anti-Malware protection in a same operating system.

    First, please go to your Features Programs, or Add Remove, application and uninstall your expired McAfee.
    Next you need to use McAfee Removal Tool to remove the " left-overs " of McAfee from the system. Here is the link :
    http://www.pchell.com/virus/uninstallmcafee.shtml
    Scroll way down till you see:
    Follow these directions to download the McAfee Removal Tool and run it to remove the above programs.
    ( download the removal tool, and run it )

    When that done, here is the way to re-start Windows Defender :
    Start button in the search box, typeServices press Enter key scroll to find Windows Defender, click it ....
    under Status heading, it should say ......... Started
    under Startup Type, it should say ............ Automatic
    If it does not say that, Right click on Windows Defender click Properties on the new window, make the necessary changes as mentioned above click OK when done.

    After installation of microsoft security essential, Window defender automatically turned off ? Why ? Can,t both the programme run simultaneously.

    DB:2.87:Window Defender 39

    On XP, Defender will be uninstalled by MSE.
    On Vista/W7, Defender will be disabled by MSE.
    You cannot have both MSE and Defender.
    To control startup programs without Defender, go to START, RUN (or START, SEARCH) and enter MSCONFIG. Then, use the STARTUP tab to control your startup programs.
    Defender provided protection against spyware only. MSE provides protection against spyware, worms, viruses, trojans, rootkits and, with version 2 in beta, malicious scripts.
    You do not need Defender.

    Windows Defender is often disabled by installing other security software to prevent conflict. THis includes Microsoft Security Essentials, McAfee, Norton, Avast, and others.
    Scan with your installed antivirus/antispyware program or download and run the Microsoft Safety Scanner:

    Hi,
    If you are using Norton, AVG, Avira, Microsoft Security Essentials, McAfee, etc the default action is forWindows Defender to be disabled, as those AntiVirus Programs have their own Antispyware Applications.
    It is nothing to be worried about.
    Using the two Programs at the same time can cause System conflicts, etc.

    If you are not using one of the above AntiVirus Programs, this Information from
    David O - Support Engineershows you how tomanually enableWindows Defender (disregard Uninstall Information; not possible in Vista):
    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_vista-security/how-do-i-manually-start-windows-defender-in-vista/dab845b2-9ba5-47f3-9518-c4c6781e7d5b
    "Go to Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools,
    Services. Locate Windows Defender.
    Right click and select Properties and ensure that the Start-Up Type is
    Automatic.
    Once changed, click on Apply and OK.
    Exit and Restart your computer. Check back taking the same route to confirm Windows Defender has started"
    .
    If you wish to have extra protection againstMalwareuse the FREE version of Malwarebytes AntiMalware:

    And to nowchange Startup Programs in Vista without using Defender, use either of these Methods:

    DB:2.84:Windows Defender Doesnt Exist In My Vista ap

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your question.

    This issue can be caused by the following factors:

    1. Corrupted Windows Defender service or components
    2. Unregistered DLL files

    First, you can delete c:\program files\windows defender\MSASCui.exe.manifest and check if it works fine.

    Verify the Windows Defender service

    1. Click Start and in the instance search type: "Run".
    2. Press enter to execute the Windows Run program.
    3. Type in "services.msc" and you will be prompted for
    UAC credentials (only if its on), if password required
    provided that and pass the UAC elevation.
    4. Now in the services list search for Windows Defender.
    5. As soon as you find it, check if its running, you can also
    change its start settings, by right-clicking and choosing "Properties", from its service properties dialog, you can change its start settings.

    If this issue is not resolved, follow this step:
    Click Start , click Run , type regsvr32 file name , and then click OK .
    Note In this step, file name is a placeholder for the following files.
    Repeat this procedure for the following files:
    wuapi.dll
    wuaueng.dll
    wucltui.dll
    wups.dll
    wuweb.dll
    atl.dll
    softpub.dll

    DB:2.84:Window Defender Keeps Shutting Itself Off, Why I Have Tired To Reinstall Windows Defender And That Does Not Work. am

    That is true that AVG 9 does automatically disable it, but that's only if your settings are wrong. Here's how to get around it and change your settings in AVG 9 to allow Windows Defender to run at computer start up:

    To get AVG 9 to allow Windows Defender to run:

    Open AVG 9

    Click on TOOLS then on ADVANCED SETTINGS

    In the left-hand menu, click on PUP EXCEPTIONS

    In the lower right-hand corner, click on ADD EXCEPTION

    In the box that opens, click the small square wit the dots in it next to where it says file and double-click on local disk C: , then double clikc PROGRAM FILES, then double click WINDOWS DEFENDER

    Double click the file named MSASCui (the one with the castle-looking icon)

    Click the add button on the box that appears

    Repeat this process for the following files:

    MpCmdRun
    MsMpEng

    Next, go back to the AVG ADVANCED SETTINGS window and click the plus sign next to RESIDENT SHIELD

    Double click EXCLUDED FILES

    Click on ADD in the box that pops up and the exact same three files that you added above

    Hit APPLY and then OK

    Restart your computer and Windows Defender should remain on now.

    Hope this helps anyone that was annoyed as I was with this. HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!!!

    Acer Aspire 5515 very slow start-up, in use, and shutdown. Norton was being used....uninstalled it. Microsoft security Essential found malicious blablah...and suggested Window defender offline....disabled MSE and downloaded Trendmicro protection which
    found Alureon.J and suggested the same thing.....so i followed the directions and after exiting from Windows defender offline all I have is Black screen w/cursor....f8, f10 and/or f11 on start-up do not bring up anything different f 2 and f12, go to PhoenixBIOS
    Setup Utility. Is there any way to recovery without losing files, this is an ACER the recovery partition will recover Vista Home Basic and wipe all other files etc....but I was hoping for a fix that leaves files and third party software intact.....Thanks

    DB:2.84:Windows Defender Offline Removed Alureon.J , Now Vista Has Black Screen With Blinking Cursor 7c

    If Acer installed a full function Vista, recovery would be simple, but Acer doesn't have on its units the tools needed to recover only replace OS. and that too is dead on this unit...see settlement of class action lawsuite....https://acerrecoverysettlement.com/
    which the owner was not aware of and is disallowed from even purchasing from Acer the fix.

    If the original 'System Recovery Options' menu was not an OEM's preinstalled recovery option, nor the tool was replaced (no option available on the hard disk at all) by Acer, I guess you then need to borrow a Vista installation disc to do the repairing.

    I'm looking for a fix that can boot from DVD or USB...

    Not sure, but you may try with
    EasyBCD or
    EaseUS Partition Master.

    I am running on Window XP. MSE did not Uninstall Window Defender. I will do it manually per Kevin Hau MST post. When installing MSE on Window XP, it do not uninstall as it should have for XP download. I found the answer to my question, Thanks.

    Hi,

    Are you running MSE or other antivirus/security programs that stop Windows Defender from running?
    If so then Windows Defender is blocked from running by them. McAfee, AVG, and many others do this.
    MSE includes Windows Defender's functions in it so that running it separately would be redundant.

    If no joy use Start - Computer or Windows Explorer to navigate to that folder and create a
    Shortcut to put on Desktop and Start Menu. You can also Right Click any exist shortcuts and
    see if they point to there.

    Maybe something hereif needed :

    What is showing/causing the error message? Some security/anitvirus/antispyware products can
    cause this error. Which of those do you use INCLUDING any that your ever had even those
    uninstalled (the remnants can cause issues). McAfee is just an example of what many can do.

    Start - type in Search box - Services - find at top of list - Right Click - Run as Admin

    Windows Defender - set to STARTED and AUTOMATIC

    or set to STOPPED and MANUAL if needed

    I recently switched to Microsoft Security Essentials, I am running this on Windows Vista, but now Windows Defender stays turned off. If I try to "start" Defender the window freezes and it just keeps going back to the window where I would
    start it from. Are these two programs not compatible??

    DB:2.80:Microsoft Security Essentials And Windows Defender Not Working Together xa

    Along with the necro, this system is Win 7, with MSE installed as well.
    On launching (the grayed out) Defender, it would be nice for the hourglass to be replaced with an option to run it in test mode, so one can make use of the great functionality of add/remove start-up programs as it was in Defender. MSE encompasses more
    than Defender,,,, but not in this respect, I fear.

    When MSE is running, there is an icon in the system tray, though it may be hidden. If MSE is failing to start, it will be red. If you open MSE, you can turn it on, though it might fail again if you have a conflict or an infection.

    Prior Security Software?
    Any security software still installed?
    A possible reason for this problem is that you have conflicting security software installed fully or partially on the PC. Remove all other security software from the PC.
    You may need to use a cleanup tool to remove your prior security software:

    When I try to run Window Defender, it gives me error code 0x800700006 and also tells me that handle is invalid. I use Norton 360 and never had this problem before. What to do to fix this?

    DB:2.80:Window Defender 9c

    Hi,
    By default Norton disables Windows Defender and it is nothing to worry about.
    Norton has its own AntiSpyware Applicationand the two operating at the same timemay cause a conflict with each other; thus the disabling of Defender.
    Read this Information from the Norton Community Forums:
    http://community.norton.com/t5/Norton-Internet-Security-Norton/Windows-Defender-with-Norton-2011/td-p/337740

    http://community.norton.com/t5/Norton-360/Norton-360-v5-Windows-Defender-Message-at-Startup-quot-This/td-p/401834

    If you wish to have extra protection againstMalwareuse the FREE version of Malwarebytes AntiMalware:

    And to nowchange Startup Programs in Vista without using Defender, use either of these Methods:
    "How to use MSCONFIG in Windows Vista"

    Or the FREE Autoruns Program:
