Is Windows Defender enabled on the computer?

 

Run the following: (Get-Service windefend).Status

 

The cmdlet will return the service status of:

Running

- OR -

Stopped

 

You can try starting the service: Start-Service windefend

 

However, if you have another anti-malware product installed e.g. McAfee, Norton, etc., these may/will disable Windows Defender and prevent the service from starting.
