    Cannot access Windows Defender

    I cannot access Windows Defender.

    I receive a message that it is not turned on.

    I use MSE as my virus protection. Is it possible that using MSE disables WD?

    I ask this because I tried running a FULL scan using MSE and my computer suddenly shut down after a few minutes into the scan. (quick scan found on issues and I used Mal Ware Bytes to do a full scan while in SAFE mode. No issues)

    Am I in trouble or is this a non issue.

    Yes:

    34. What about Windows Defender?
    Windows Defender (on Windows 7, Vista, and XP) provided spyware protection only. MSE provides protection against spyware, viruses, Trojans, worms, root kits, and malicious scripts. Therefore, there is no need for Windows Defender.
    • On Windows 7/Vista, MSE should disable Defender. If not, you should disable it.
