    Hello. I've managed (somehow) to disable Windows Defender and Windows Security Alerts. I cannot re-start these using the Control Panel as I receive the error message 'Application failed to initialize'.
    How can I re-start these, perhaps with a registry setting?
    Even though I've disabled Secirty Alerts the icon still appears in the notification area. Is it possible to prevent this? Thanks, Andy.

    I'd uninstall Windows Defender, then download the latest version from Windows Defender: Home Page and reinstall it.
