I'm unable to re-enable Windows Defender given the error of "Threat service has stopped restart it now." (and when i attempt to restart, it stalls and then gives error prompt) and sometimes "Page not available, Your IT Administrator has limited access to some areas of this app..."
I have exhausted all Google searches and YouTube tutorials and am unsure where to go from here, seems it's common for a third party anti-virus service to disable Windows Defender but i have not used a anti-virus service since 2013.
There is no other Windows devices on my network only mobile devices, my router/dns does not seem to be tampered with, Windows is fully updated, drivers updated, newest bios.
I encountered this problem 3 days ago and since then i have; Clean installed windows twice, Cleared CMOS, regedit DisableAntiSpyware set to 0, Installed Malwarebytes after this issue and performed a full scan(0 results), Glanced through task manager, used my extremely limited knowledge in Wireshark and failed to find anything.
I'm not sure what to do and if someone can help me out i'd appreciate it alot. It's kinda uneasy being unable to determine whether i have some sort of malware or this is a Windows "bug"
Not sure if this will be helpful but,
