    Can't find Defender in Services at all. Can't turn it on. Going to try dism, might get it back untill I find something better.

    Wow! Since I don't use defender or avast, this thing really didn't show up for me at front. Who knows what else have been affected by this one?

    Did you try searching it in charms bar?

    Defender is there, just can't turn it on on account of it's service completely missing I guess.

    Is there some command prompt commands so that you could try to enable it from there?

    Tried dism, did not get it back, Should try MSE maybe. Darn it, feel naked without at least some protection, have to scour internet to find a free AV that I may like.

    No, no need for other user profiles, ordinary Administrator only, sometimes I go to full but only rarely.
