  • Hi,

    Do you have any other antivirus or antimalware programs installed?

    you to try one thing:

    1.Press Win key + R --> Type "services.msc" and hit enter.

    2.In Services, scroll down to bottom and search for "Windows Defender Service" and “Security Center Service”

    3.Ensure its 'Status' is NOT 'Running' (it will be blank).

    4.Then go to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Defender.

    5.Rename folders 'Scans' and 'Quarantine' to 'Scans.old' and 'Quarantine.old'.

    6.Restart the two Services and try to start Windows Defender now.

    Or you could run the command below in CMD window.

    sc start WinDefend Enable

    Hope it will be helpful to you
