How to Enable Windows Defender – How to turn on Windows Defender in Windows 8.1/8 – Free & Easy

Công Nghệ

In my video tutorial I’m showing you how to Enable Windows Defender & how to turn on & turn off Windows defender in Windows 8 & Windows 8.1. If you have Windows defender disabled and need to enable Windows Defender then my video shows you what to do.

Windows Defender is a free virus and spyware protection software from Microsoft. It comes built into Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. Windows defender is a good security app if you do not want to use a third party virus and spyware protection software, for example AVG, AVAST, AVIRA, Norton or McAfee to protect your computer from all the bad stuff out there that can damage your computer.

If Windows Defender has been turned off and isn’t monitoring your computer and you have no other security protection software app running to protect your computer, than watch my video and learn how to turn it on.

IMPORTANT to keep in mind:
If you are running another security protection software like Norton or McAfee then Windows Defender won’t turn on. But if you have paid for a yearly subscription for another security protector I would not un-install them. If you want to use Windows Defender you must be willing to un-install those other protectors first. So you will get Windows Defender Error, actually a system not protected error or Windows Defender won’t turn on error message,

In my opinion Windows defender scan is a good security protection program to use that is just as good as the free avast or avg security app. Just remember that you should always have one internet security program running and protecting your laptop computer in real time, all the time.
