    I didn't see you edited your post...
    I understand that windows security app now shows it's window and settings but security service is not visible in services.msc, is that correct?

    Please follow these steps:
    1. Right click on start button and select "Windows PowreShell (Admin)"
    2. copy command below and right click into console to paste then press enter:
    Get-Service SecurityHealthService
    and also this one:
    Get-Service WinDefend
    Take screenshot of the output for both and share it here.

    I cant see what is that made it work?
    Which of the Brink's tutorials helped you?
    Knowing this can help in determining the cause.

    The service which you're looking for in services.msc is called "Microsoft Defender Antivirus Service", perhaps you missed that or were looking for something else?

    As for not being able to turn on cloud protection try logging in as Administrator and then try enabling, does that work?

    I can log in to cloud protection but not the send samples to MS
    The thing that started defender working was disabling all non MS services in startup msconfig

    Should this window be greyed out

    security service is called windows security service and its present, set it to run now its greyed out, hopefull this doesnt matter

    What happens when you try to enable "Automatic sample submission"?
    Is the option grayed out?
    Does it say "This setting is managed by your Administrator?"

    dialogs in services.msc are grayed out because these services are managed by SYSTEM account and there is no Administrator permission to modify them directly, that's normal.

    And reason why it says "This setting is managed by your Administrator" is because you modified the setting in gpedit.msc

    The setting is located in the following location:
    Computer configuration\Administrative templates\Windows Components\Microsoft Defender Antivirus\MAPS
    Send file samples when further analysis is required

    To un-gray the button set this option to "Not configured" and run gpupdate.exe from within powershell console.
