Windows 7: windows Defender

windows Defender

Installed UWT 2.2 (tweaks), did not select any security tweaks only performance tweaks.

When I rebooted I now get a popup that windows defender is turned off. When I click to start nothing happens, rebooting still gives popup.

I have Security Essentials installed.

Any ideas on how to fix

Yes I know, that is why I mentioned that it was installed, anyway I have a habit of creating restore points every night, before I shut down for the evening.

Did a restore from most recent and problem solved.

Thanks for your speedy reply.

Is it possible to run both Security and Defender? If so how?

Thanks

Let me guess, UWT 2.2 did it to your computer.

Naturally, why I don't know, he's on third and I don't give a darn, oh that's our shortstop.

Yes it did, but restore fixed it.

I let Windows 7 Pro 64 update a bunch of windows files via Windows Update... including Windows Defender. Windows Defender now seems to think my KPT5 Photoshop Plugin filter is evil... and has (I think) been causing chaos with my Photoshop program.... So, I turned it off. Is that ok? ...

Windows Defender And AVG ?
Hello, New HP desktop with Windows7. Not great with all of this stuff. I believe I am using now all of the MS anti-virus and Firewall that came on the PC. Also, just found out that Windows Defender was not ON for some reason. Turned it On.
