It's been disabled by Malwarebytes and you don't need Windows DEfender if you plan on paying for Malwarebytes. Once it expires (I'm assuming it's a trial version) it should revert back. Only you know what you installed and w/o that info we can only go this far.

Turn it back on for G*d's sake.

Log into your computer using the Administrator account. Then use the Group Policy Editor to re-enable defender. The Local Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) is a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in that provides a single user interface through which all the the Computer Configuration and User Configuration settings of Local Group Policy objects can be managed.
Start - run - gpedit.msc
