You might want to temporarily turn off the virus scanner while you try Windows Defender again to see if that helps.  There are a number of McAfee antivirus products.  Which one are you using?

Well, the instructions I expected you to follow are these from that page:

go to Control panel-then Administration Tools - Computer Managerment - Service Application - Services - find windows defender in Services you will notice it will be blank or disabled - now you have to high light windows defender, double click and then select automatic, click on the word Start - apply changes and re boot your computer

But let's make it even simpler.  You need to get to the Services window in order to restart the Windows Defender service.  So type SERVICES.MSC in the search box at the bottom of the Start Menu.  Then hit the Ctrl key, the Shift key, and the Enter key at the same time.  This runs SERVICES.MSC as an Administrator.  Scroll down in the window that opens up until you see the Windows Defender entry.  Double click it, and change its status to Automatic. Then click on the Start button on that window in order to start the service...
