    Windows Defender not allowing to run Microsoft Safety Scanner on Windows 8

    I have downloaded the Microsoft Safety Scanner a security tool which is for free, and when trying to run it on my windows 8 machine the Windows Defender says that the program you are trying to run is not safe, please quit the process. I have tried again after a fresh restart but am getting same message again.

    This is a standard issue, no two security application works together.
    When Windows Defender is turned on it has every control and will not allow any further security programs to operate.

    If you insist on running the Downloaded Microsoft Safety Scanner ,
    You must deactivate Windows Defender first.

    Click Start--in the search box type Windows Defender, press enter,
    Click Windows Defender,
    From option, disable Windows Defender, save the change , exit.

    Now run Microsoft Safety Scanner successfully,
    Try that.
