Installation of McAfee disables Windows Defender. Officially it should remain that way, but in practice I have found that it's fine to restart WD.
Recently updates have periodically caused the unprotected pop-up in McAfee, but if the fix option works then don't worry about it. If the fix doesn't work then try rebooting and hopefully it will be OK.
It's a known bug with no end in sight thus far, sorry.
Nice quick response. Thanks.
I started the windows Defender service manually and on every reboot you have to do it again.
Not worth the trouble.
You shouldn't have to start it up every time you boot, I don't. Check in services.msc that it is Started & Automatic.
