windows defender isn't recemmend as they no longer are certified. Avast might be a good choice, they are one of the best free options. Other than that, try what paul NZ said. Stop the service and delete the file. It's a good idea to make sure the PC is clean before doing anything sensitive on it.

It no longer has a security certificate, Microsoft even said the software will no longer cover the latest or even all threats. It's like protecting a city with a wall only halfway around it. It's pretty much useless for all but the most basic threats.

If you don't want to install another anti-virus, the least you can do is run a downloadable anti-vrius tool.

Here is a link to such a program

You might as well turn off windows defender, it's a false sense of security.

Windows defender is minimalist at best. Your current issue proves it doesn't work. Having a program that's easy to use alone does not guarantee it's effectiveness, only that you get a false sense of security. The argument "It's worked in the past" isn't valid as one cannot ascertain when an infection might have occurred. Working on the facts we have right now, according to your personal case and the information and anecdotal evidence available on the web, we can deduce that windows defender is quite poor at it's job. The only advantage it has is that it doesn't crash and it's easy to use. If you base the effectiveness of your anti-virus on this, you can expect more infections to follow.

There's really no way to pinpoint it. You just have to consider the risks you take on the internet. Visiting new sites you don't know, reputation wise, download files, or clicking on adds are all security risks.

You are a lazy, arrogant pile of $#!T. You use the forums for help. The only solutin you have is to get Avast and Malwarebytes. And run both of them. Windows Defender is basically an app version of you. Arrogant and crap.
