    Technically they're not selling anything. It must be your installation, I turned Windows Defender off day 1 and it's never re-enabled. So I know it's not a "Windows 10 thing"
    Yeah it's always my fault. Well since you seem so sure of that, tell me, what did I do wrong?

    I'm not saying it's your fault, I'm just telling you, I've turned Windows Defender off and it's never re-enabled. I have no idea what you could or could not be doing wrong, I just know that it worked for me, so either I'm doing something right, and it's not a Windows 10 thing that it keeps re-enabling, or my Windows Install is broken and it should be re-enabling. I was just trying to add to the information that I don't believe it's a Windows 10 thing, just maybe something going on with your system.

    Try this tool, it might help you out. What's more it lets you switch off various means how Windows 10 sends data back to MS.

    Still no reason to fact of why need to turn it off. Do you have another Anti-Virus or just do not want it at all on ? Need some kind of protection on PC.

    Don't want it, don't need it. Plus I've convinced myself of the effectiveness of such software (or rather the absence of any) long ago. An anti-virus' sole purpose is to slap you over the hand whenever you do anything even remotely dangerous, not actually removing any harmful software or running damage control.

    Anyway, switching to Linux I guess, sigh. You can lock this.

    The only way to disable it 100% is to have another AV running. It even says in the settings if you turn it off, it will turn itself back on after a while. You can get many free AV programs. Just install another one, and then you disable Defender. My like is Defender. Runs silently in the background, doesn't take a lot of resources, and is pretty much out of the way unless something is detected.

    Just don't think Linux is going to save you. I find more annoying things in Linux than in windows. asking for password on many steps is just one of them, to say nothing about it having 1% of number of programs available for Windows.

    As far as it comes to malware Linux is definitely going to save him. There are other, Linux specific problems. But malware is definitely not among them.

    There's malware for Linux too but because of small percentage Linux has, so is smaller amount of malware. Mac can get hammered also. Android and others are good target and are vulnerable just as well. There's nothing 100% safe.
