Many av solutions turn off windows defender ...this may be what is going on..as stated above it is not a good tool for protection anyway /and should not be turned on if you have other real time protection

While I think that Windows Defender is one of the worst antimalware products around, the fact that you can't turn it on is likely to be indicative of a malware infection. If you are running Microsoft Security Essentials, Defender should be disabled automatically when MSE installs, and you shouldn't be able to restart it.
