Windows Defender keeps becoming disabled


Recommended Posts

I have always had Malwarebytes and Windows Defender running together with no problems.  After the Fall Update, Defender keeps shutting down and will not let me turn it back on because there is already another antivirus program monitoring the system (I assume it is Malwarebytes).  I uninstalled MWB and reinstalled it and it worked for a while, then shut down Defender again.  I tried looking in Settings to allow both to run but cannot find anything relevant.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The best solution for this is to open Malwarebytes and go to Settings -> Application, then scroll down to the Windows Action Center section and change Malwarebytes to "Never register with Windows Action Center".
