I recently ran out of my free trial on Emisoft AV (which was great) and i went to uninstall to turn Windows Defender back on. I had removed it by the usual uninstall from control panel, when i press "Turn On" on Defender it redirects me to the programs list and states that it is handled by another AV Program (I can assure you that it is not)
Anyone know how to fix?

(Win 10 BTW)

When i close the program list (Because there is no AV software there) it comes up with "The service cant be started" because of a timeout request.

Can you open and perform a scan with Windows Defender?
Just done this, Thanks. I had the idea of it leaving traces in the registries but didn't know that they provided a clean-up tool.
Thanks for the Help once again.
