Windows 7: Windows Defender

Windows Defender

I try to turn on WD. The little blue icon comes on and I wait for 5-10 minutes and nothing happens. What could be the cause?

Hello William,

I woud recommend to install MSE instead. It's a lot better, and will replace Windows Defender.

Hope this helps,

Yeah, meant that MSE turned off Windows Defender and replaced it as the default program instead.
