    Hello tazmo, :)

    It's a false positive by EEK since the .reg file is manually setting the group policy to disable Windows Defender real-time protection.

    That's what I thought EEK sees it as an attachment ergo BlackShades and in this case 'enabling' does the same thing.

    Hello AmirAcle, :)

    It looks like Windows Defender has been disabled. Do you have a 3rd party AV program installed? If so, that would be why.

    MBAM wouldn't disable Windows Defender.

    Double check using the tutorial below to see if you may have a group policy enabled that disables Windows Defender.

    That would be why its settings are grayed out then. If you set the group policy back to "Not Configured", the settings should be enabled again.
