Windows Defender off at Startup


Laurie

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

Can you help me?

 

Windows Defender - startup since installing Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 6 with ANTIVIRUS and free version Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

 

On my Vista laptop Windows Defender "WD" does not start automatically when I turn the computer on - it has to be turned on manually each time.

 

I've checked OPTIONS for Windows Defender real-time protection and autostart is checked.

 

I have Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 6 with ANTIVIRUS and free version Malwarebytes Anti-Malware could any of this be relevant?

 

Would appreciate advice, please.

 

:-P Laurie"

Hi Scannan and Everyone,

 

Thank you!!

 

My thoughts exactly, but still learning.

 

I actually did a search how to uninstall WD to no avail before I posted thinking it was interfering with asc6u or malwarebytes which I hope are MORE powerful and intuitive to protect my machine.

 

As you all probably know, WD on Vista has NO option to uninstall. :roll:

 

Do you know if it is okay to turn off real-time protection and advanced protection and if that will stop Windows Security alerts during startup and at anytime :?:

 

Thank You!

Laurie"

I do not see a need to uninstall WD. It is no harm to have an additional security program which you can run once in a while as a double check on your present security software. A lot of users do this as an added check.

You should be able to disable WD with the ASC startup manager which is located in the toolbox.
