    Question

  • (Windows Vista Home Prim.) windows defender stoped working. I've been trying to restart the program,no luck . I've been to microsoft.com support,and tried to resolve the issue with there info. Again no luck. I went to windows defender web sight ,and downloaded curent updates for defender thinking that might kickstart the program, did not happen. I've unistalled, reinstalled, I went to windows PC FIX IT and ran that program for Vista x64, and just when I thought I solved the issue, Iam back to square one. what has to happen to get this program to work?

  • Do you have antivirus installed?

    Some antivirus (like Forefront Client security or Microsoft security essentials) shuts down defender because the AV program takes over that functionality. This is by design.

  • By default, Norton disables Windows Defender during the installation because it's not recommanded to have more than on AV or AntiSpyware product on the same computer.
