“The app is turned off by group policy” error fix in Windows Defender.

Last Updated on December 13, 2016 by Vinay Kharayat

Hello visitors….
Some days ago I faced a problem in opening WINDOWS DEFENDER.

The app is turned off by group policy.

Actually this error comes up when you have any other Antivirus or Anti-Malware program.
But Anti virus blocks many programs and some of them lags PC too. Thats why I prefer WINDOWS DEFENDER. 
 So after doing some searching on google I managed to find fix for this problem.
Actually I found two fixes for this problem but I only tested one (which fixed my issue). So if one doesn’t work try second.
