If MB is registered within the security centre then it becomes the default anti malware program & disables Defender.
Glad to see the problem appears resolved.

And it was apparently turned on by default. No indication that it turns off Defender, that I can find. Thanks so much for sticking with me on this. If the problem resurfaces, I'll be back. :oops:

I turned it on to see what happens & yes it disables the antivirus/malware portion but keeps the Firewall.
