Re: Can someone help me with windows defender.
I am having the exact same problem, I don't have Norton (I use AVG which is
also failing to start). Could I have a virus that is doing this? I am unable
to start any virus scanner, ad-scanner or any of the windows security
programs: defender, firewall etc....Am I stuffed?
Thanks in advance for your relpies.
