My windows defender turns off at restart and during the day with the computer on. Sometimes I cannot turn windows defender on as it tells me the security center cannot turn it on, try again later. What is the deal. When it is working I am able to get updates. The updates are not the problem. I even have the permission checked for all changes but somehow it turns off without me giving it permission. I cannot find anything anywhere on this problem. PLEAS HELP. I also have Windows Live One Care which should be compatable. Both of these were installed on the computer when I bought it last month.
Hi flower3013, please understand that after installing Windows Live OneCare, Windows Defender will be integrated in Windows Live OneCare to provide one-stop antivirus, anti-spyware service. This issue can occur if Windows Live OneCare did not fully disable Windows Defender on Windows Vista side. I recommend you submit a service request via the following link:
