    Hi,

    It`s not clear from your writing wheather you are trying to download Patch of Windows Defender or download something which is blocked by the Defender.

    Assuming Windows Defender active and you are trying to download something let me suggest you to stop Windows Defender function, then reactivate that.

    START > in the search box type "WINDOWS DEFENDER" and ENTER, In the next option Click on Windows Defender and it will offer you a menu which will offer you an option to Close Windows Defender. Close it.

    Reboot, check the situation. In case you are worried about security activate Windows Defender again.

    Thanks.

    Hello Friend,

    Well, to sort out this issue you should uninstall your Windows Defender forst from your PC. To do that go to start menu then control panel. From there go to program and then programs and feature. Now, go to uninstall programs and from the list select Windows defender and click remove button from the menu and click OK. This will remove Windows defender from your PC. Now, you have to download a fresh version of Windows Defender from the internet and install to your PC. Hopefully, this time it will work.

    Bye,
