Windows 10: Windows Defender keeps wanting to be on duty all the time. Solved

    Windows Defender keeps wanting to be on duty all the time.


    Windows Defender and my Virus Program keeps coming up and says not activated to control. I made my Virus program which is Vipre to be main program for everything, and set it to be but it and defender keep telling me they are off when I boot up. Should I activate both or not?

    Vipre should disable Windows Defender. Both won't run together.

    You may want to do some research to see if Vipre is compatible with Win10. Does Vipre have a support forum ?

    It's a common issue, just turn Vipre on when prompted by Windows and all will be good. It happens to me sometimes with F-Secure even though it is turned on.

    Do not attempt to run two AVs.

    It is on Manual and it still comes up every time I start windows. It says it is off but it is a nuisance and would like it not to come up at all.

    I have never tried to run two of them at once.

    Okay I got this fixed through "Advanced System Care". I clicked on Toolbox/Startup Manager/Startup Items, and there it was. Deleted it and now it doesn't show up anymore asking to activate it.
