    Disabling Defender—Sordium's Defender Control:no longer being updated


    For those who had he pleasure of using this one and only utility that actually prevented Windows Defender from running in the background including it's associated application like MsMpEng.exe, the developers announced a few days ago that because Microsoft does not want Defender to be turned off completely, they will not be updating it.

    The explanation is that when defender is turned off, windows update or windows component are trying to repair Defender and as a result Defender may become corrupt. Of course a malicious program may also corrupt Defender completely. (If there is no different security software in windows, when Defender is turned off)

    Microsoft is constantly taking new measures because it does not want Defender to be turned off.

    I'm unclear as to what you are trying to say about MS continuing to develop Defender.

    I routinely used to disable defender but these days I keep it running. It's just usually lack of understanding on configuration that leads users to disable it.
