Windows 10: Turn On or Off Windows Defender in Windows 10
I made the registry change on two machines (build 14986) and Windows Defender still will not turn on, saying that another program (Bitdefender?) is handling it. But I uninstalled Bitdefender using Revo Uninstaller pro, so it is NOT there anymore. How do I get WD to start? Is there a registry key that tells WD that there is another product doing the AV?
It sounds like Bitdefender may not have been completely uninstalled. You might see if this below may help.
I have tried all the suggestions, but to no avail. I had Bitdefender installed, but removed it using Revo Uninstaller Pro. And have rebooted many times. In build 14986, Windows Defender turns on for about 10 seconds, but then turns off, saying that antivirus is handled by another product.
This happens on 3 different machines!
thanks a lot for the tutorial
but how i know if it's enabled outside the system tray icon?
i have not the icon , and the service seems and the service is set to manual
You could open Windows Defender to see.
Did you already try what I posted above for uninstalling Bitdefender?
