Hi all, wonder if you can help me. 

 

Running Windows 10 with all latest updates. 

 

Recently I've been getting the notification that my Windows defender is turned off.

Going into the security centre I try to turn it in, but nothing happens. 

 

I've checked the services and windows defender is running. 

 

Thought it may be to do with my Avira firewall, so turned that off, but still cannot get 

defender to turn on. 

 

Interestingly, when I reboot my PC defender IS on. 

 

It gets switched off around 5 mins or so of using the pc, then it cannot be switched on again. 

 

Any ideas what is happening, or how to test stuff?

A couple of questions:

 

1. You have Avira antivirus installed in the computer?

 

2. Does Avira starts immediately when you sign in Windows or after some minutes (delayed start)?

Hi, Avira loads in and starts after 30/50 seconds or so once the desktop is loaded, so yes, a delayed start.

Since you already are getting help in another forum, not necessary to continue here. :)
