  1. I am trying to repair Windows Defender. It will not load and neither will the Windows Firewall. This seemed to start on the last Windows 10 update (1803 build 17134.1). I have searched the web on how to fix the problem but so far have found nothing except others are having the same problem. I downloaded you .rar package file and then unzipped the files. I located one for the firewall and it said it changed the registry. I then found 2 for Windows Defender, but I got a message that the registry can not be changed. What else can I try?
