    Understood, cannot set these as an admin and the middle one gets me an icon and the ability to update and scan when started manually. Gonna try Safe Mode setting? GPO and registry ineffective. Windows Pro 10 Insider Build 1493.

    Thanks. Check in later..
    If all else fails, you could do a repair install to fix Windows without losing anything.

    When you install some 3rd party antivirus (AV) programs, they may automatically turn off Windows Defender
    I updated from Malwarebytes 2 to 3, but it didn't turn of Defender. I understand that Malwarebytes 3 can now replace your antivirus, but apparently Windows Defender doesn't see it so??
