everytime I shut down and restart up my computer this Windows PC defender
shows up and everytime I run Mcafee and it doesn't detect it but my Windows
Defender does. Now I go to remove it using Windows defender but it shows up
again after restart. Why isn't Windows Defender actually removing it?

First remove all temporarily junk with CCleaner

<http://www.ccleaner.com>
Note, uncheck Yahoos Toolbar

Download the basic version via
<http://www.ccleaner.com/download/builds.aspx>
The basic version does not contain the disgusted Toolbar

In Options, Settings, Advanced, uncheck - Only delete files in Windows
folders older than 48 hours.

Note: uncheck Windows Defender in the Applications.

Open Ccleaner and press "Windows" "Applications" and Run Cleaner from the
menu choose 'Issues' and then press scan for issues, Repair any fºund.

Run twice Ccleaner, the same as above,until you get “0 bytes to be removedâ€.

Reboot

You should be contacting McAfee.

Services and Support for Home and Home Office
<http://service.mcafee.com/Default.aspx>

HeÑe's McAfee phone # 1-800-338-8754. You'll most likely get a person in
India. They will walk you through solving your problem. Windows Defender
needs to be disabled when using McAfee Security Suite 2009.

Probably indicate that the object detected is in an aÑchive, or perhaps a
protected location, like a system restore point.

Here's how to find out more information:
Start, run, eventvwr.msc
Highlight the System event log in the left column.
Go to View, choose Filter, and, in the dropdown control for source, choose
"windefend"
Look in the right pane for yellow-triangle events at the time of the
original scan--and double click on these to open them--they have a button to
cut and paste to the clipboard if you want to post them.

There should be full path and file and object name in these entries, which
you can use to remove or rename such a finding yourself.

What is the fully qualified path to the file demed to be Windows PC Defender?

Have you ever run a Windows Defender (WD) full scan in SAFE mode?

If the quick scan finds anything, you probably should follow it up with a
full scan to find any additional junk that the malicious software dropped on
your machine that may have been missed by the quick scan.

It's also a good idea to schedule the full scan to happen periodically
(every night, for instance) at a time when you are not typically using your
computer and the added time to scan all of the files won't be noticed.

Reboot again

McAfee consumer grade antimalware can be mediocre and bloated. Though
Windows Defender is improving, it isn't programmed to solve the root
cause. You really need to run much more effective antimalware
solutions and you would do well to avoid antimalware suites or all in
one solutions.

MBAM will remove the Trojan-Rogue Windows PC Defender.
