Regarding Windows Defender

Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.


I have found a method to turn on windows defender (Microsoft recommended) 

  • In Start, open Control Panel.
  • Open Administrative Tools > Edit group policy. This will open the Local Group Policy Editor in a new window.
  • Open Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Defender Antivirus. The setting Turn off Windows Defender Antivirus is underneath the folders of other settings.
  • Open Turn off Windows Defender Antivirus and make sure it's set to Disabled or Not configured.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
