Your Virus & threat protection is managed by your organization

I just updated my Windows with April update and my defender Antivirus is showing "Your Virus & threat protection is managed by your organization" instead of the usual scanning options.

I want my defender with scanning options, how do I do it.

Answer
Answer

If malware might have disabled Windows Defender, then scan with several third-party malware-removal tools, starting with Malwarebytes Free:

Then type “cmd” in the search box; right-click on Command Prompt, and select Run as administrator; and then copy, paste, and enter this command:

 

REG DELETE "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender" /v DisableAntiSpyware
