With the arrival of Windows 10, Microsoft gave a boost to Windows Defender. This application was in charge of controlling all the apps that we installed on our hard drive, informing us not only of whether it is dangerous for the system because the developer is not known, but also informs us that it contains some type of virus, malware, spyware.

As the months passed since the launch of Windows 10, many were the users who realized that with Windows Defender alone there was no need to use any third-party antivirus, a fantastic idea that allowed us to save a few euros every year, with which we can also buy a valid Windows 10 license that will work for any computer.

How to activate Windows Defender in Windows 10

But if you are one of those users who has never trusted Windows Defender, it is likely that in the past, you have deactivated it so that it does not interfere with the antivirus you have installed on your computer. If you believe that Windows Defender has matured enough to trust the integrity of your computer to Microsoft’s antivirus, then we show you the steps to follow to return to Activate Windows Defender on your Windows 10 computer.

To do it in the most comfortable way possible without going into the system, we must use the NoDefender application, an application that we can download through this link. This application allows us to disable Windows Defender completely, but in turn, it also allows us to re-enable it.

Once we have downloaded it when it is run, it will detect that Windows Defender is already deactivated on our computer, so it will show us the button Activate Windows Defender, button that when you click on it, it will start up the Windows antivirus.

Before performing this step, it is advisable to uninstall the antivirus that we have installed at that time. Otherwise, the two of you are likely to conflict and eliminate it from a lot of headaches.
