After installing webroot complete, windows defender is now on. why? and now, nothing can be turned on or off either. how do I turn windows defender off? My malwarebytes doesn't show as being on in the action center for windows7, but it is running. I am very confused now.

Below are the instructions to turn Windows Defender off. :D
SecureAnywhere will not interact with Windows Defender at all. The instructions above should help you disable it if you wish to do so but SecureAnywhere is not what causes it to turn back on/off.
I agree with Mike. I've noticed on my laptop running Win.7 when I change security software Win. Defender would turn on. It looks like a Microsoft issue or Microsoft has it set that way for safety. After downloading WSAE I turned off Win. Defender and it's still off.
