    Windows 10, piece of crap.

    Disable real-time protection.


    I've only had Windows 10 for a few days and it's already annoyed me more than XP and Vista ever have combined. Right now my problem is the damn thing keeps enabling real-time protection for no apparent reason. I'm confused, was this software developed by primates by any chance? Humans? Then what part of "TURN OFF" don't they understand?

    How can I get back control over my computer from this POS operating system? Is that possible? 'Cause if it's not, f*** this. I'm so fed up with Microsoft and their bullshit. I'm not even going back to Windows 8, I'm switching to Linux. I don't give a damn if I won't be able to use most of my programs, beats having to deal with this piece of crap.

    Why do you need to turn it off? Have something else protecting your system as would disable to begin with ? Not even mention of Defender in thread starters post, assume it is.

    Maybe the op is struggling with some install that's blocked by Windows Defender? Or he/ she just wants to disable it. Even though it's not very wise to run Windows without real time virus protection it's completely the users choice if one wants to do that.

    Good to know, I have never actually tried that one.
    Turn off WD, download this, run as admin and that is it.

    Yeah that didn't work either. I'm done, I'm freaking done. Can't believe they are legally permitted to sell this crap...

    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"
