If you have one of the following AV, anti-virus, programs installed, it will shut down your Windows Defender.
Norton
McAfee
AVG
Microsoft Security Essentials

How to restart Windows Defender:

Click Start button > in the search box, type Services
Press Enter key > scroll to find Windows Defender, click it >
under Status heading, it should say ......... Started
under Startup Type, it should say ............ Automatic
If it does not say that, Right click at Windows Defender > click Properties >
at Startup Type, click the pointer at far right and select Automaticat Service Status,
click Start
click OK when done.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

If Windows Defender is restarted in that way, would Windows Defender and the other security product interfere with eachother when either Defender is run or the other security product is run?

Avira should play nice with WD.

Avira Quote

No need to disable the resident of windows defender as they don't clash. When we mention not having two resident applications it is by type anti-virus 1 of, anti-spyware 1 of. If you had other antivirus/spyware applications they should be on-demand only

.


Please download MiniToolBox, save it to your desktop and run it.

Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  • Flush DNS
  • Report IE Proxy Settings
  • Reset IE Proxy Settings
  • Report FF Proxy Settings
  • Reset FF Proxy Settings
  • List content of Hosts
  • List IP configuration
  • List Winsock Entries
  • List last 10 Event Viewer log
  • List Installed Programs
  • List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
Click Go and post the result (Result.txt). A copy of Result.txt will be saved in the same directory the tool is run.

Note: When using "Reset FF Proxy Settings" option Firefox should be closed.
