MWB disabling Windows Defender

Recommended Posts


I just restored to Original Factory Settings (windows 8) a 4 year old laptop.  Ran all updates and upgraded to 8.1.  Ran more updates, installed MS Office 2010 and activated Defender; so far so good even after multiple boot-ups.

Installed CCleaner, DriverBooster and Malwarebytes (Premium free trial).  Defender gets disabled straight away.  Ran mb-check and mb-clean and re-installed MWB, yielding same result.  Turned off MWB at the System Tray and Defender becomes available, but after launching MWB it gets disabled again.

I have put  much trust in this program until this latest version; I am also having problems with my main PC.  I also own an HP i5 with Windows 10, which by the way, I am not updating yet.

Any help will be very much appreciated.
