    Default Windows Defender won't stay ON

    I recently uninstalled 360 Security Suite. When I restarted Windows 10 (PRO 64) Windows Defender was turned OFF.

    I restarted, but in just a few seconds it turned itself OFF again. Despite mulitple attempts, I cannot get Defender to stay ON. Anyone have any ideas?

    Any chance that another anti-virus / anti-malware program exists on this computer? I ask even though opening post is dated May 2018 -- others might want to explore this situation as well.

    I think the 360 software may not have uninstalled properly.

    TRy these suggestions:

    This happened to me before. I fixed it by restarting the Windows Defender service.
