Win defender

I am trying to open windows defender to do a full virus scan and it will not open. The action center says all is well but I would still like to do a full scan every week or so.
Running ie9 and win7 home premium

RE: Win defender

Perhaps you have Microsoft Security Essentials as a anti-virus/malware program that disables Windows Defender in Control Panel.

Maybe look from the Start Button in All Programs for Microsoft Security Essentials. Update and do a full scan with that.
