    Default Windows defender is turned off

    Hi all,

    I dont install any antiVirus on my windows 8 consumer preview because I am thinking windows defender should be ok for the computer. These days I keep getting a message Windows defender is turned off. There are no options in the message, and the list of spyware programs closes off the turn WD on option.

    Whenever I try to turn Windows Defender on, it just goes right back off again. How can I fix this?

    Thanks.

    jessie, open the Windows Defender program & make sure that the settings are proper. Make sure that "Use this Program" is checked & click Apply.

    That's a good starting point.
