    Defender turned off in group policy


    defender is currently off and when i try to turn on it says its set off in group policy.

    I am not sure how this happened but i cant turn it on again.

    gpedit isnt available on my home version of windows so how did it get turned off in the first place?

    Hello Dooper,

    It sounds like you may have used the method in OPTION TWO below to turn off Windows Defender then. It manually sets the same policy via Registry Editor instead.
