Sorry if this is in the wrong section.
I have a laptop that came with Win10, with a subscription to McAfee. I can't remember at this point if it was unactivated or expired.
I removed the McAfee program via the uninstall programs feature in the control panel, then tried to start Defender but it wouldn't start.
Then went to the McAfee website and used their removal tool, Defender still won't start.
Tried the Start option in the Services window. No luck.
Tried to enable defender with the command prompt. No luck. BAH Still says 'This app has been turned off and isn't monitoring your computer'.

Moved from Windows 10 to more appropriate forum. ~ OB
