    Disable Windows Defender

    According to this Microsoft article:

    Configure telemetry and other settings in your organization (Windows)

    To Disable Windows Defender I have written the following code (Disable.bat):

    REM Disable Windows Defender
    REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Spynet" /V "SpyNetReporting" /T REG_DWORD /D "0" /F

    But it does not work, am I doing something wrong do you think?
    Thanks :)
