You'll need a new app to open this windowsdefender

Recently I purchased a used ThinkPad T4301 from ebay. However, when I tried to open the Windows Defender, I saw the following pop-up:

Never say die popup

Apparently, this happens if you unistall a third-party Anti-virus software. But it is easy to fix it by following steps

  1. Open Powershell with elevated (Admin) access

  2. Run following command

Add-AppxPackage -Register -DisableDevelopmentMode C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.Windows.SecHealthUI_cw5n1h2txyewy\AppXManifest.xml

That’s it. Done!
