    Don't know why?
    It's been like this since I upgraded from win 7 to win 10, I looked in the security setting and it's grayed out but it looks like it's on but who knows.

    Hence the post, need help :-)

    MSE should not be installed on Windows 10. Windows Defender takes its place. If MSE shows up in installed programs you should uninstall it.

    I have a computer I'm working on with the same problem.
    He had MSE when he was using Windows 7.
    When he upgraded it to Windows 10 MSE carried over and Windows Defender is grayed out just like you computer.
    If you find a solution, I'll certainly refer to it.
    If (I really want to say when) I'll post the solution.

    I did a fresh install of Win7 w/SP1 on Saturday then all the updates through Sunday. Monday the Win10 was offered and I let it install. I got a message that MSE was uninstalled as it is incompatible with Win10 and the default was now the latest Windows Defender.

    This was my scenario exactly, my correction is the cmd.exe post:

    That's what I originally got also when I upgraded my HP laptop from W7 Pro Sp1 to W10 Pro on 8/4/2015, so evidently the W10 install doesn't always catch it.

    So does "my correction" mean the problem is resolved?
