    Since this is a TP. The option to turn off/disable Windows Defender is grayed out. However, you can turn off by:

    Windows Defender - Turn On or Off in Windows 10

    1. Open Admin Command Prompt and type: gpedit.msc
    2. Manoeuver to: Computer Configuration->Administrative Templates->Windows Components->Windows Defender
    3. Double click on "Turn Off Windows Defender" and select "Enabled" then click "Apply"


    WARNING: After turn off "Windows Defender", you might not be able to turn it back on. I suggest before trying this, make a backup image so you can restore to the way it was.

    My problem was: clicking on a program (application) took a long time to open. I traced the source of this problem to Defender. I will not go into the gaudy details of the countless hours to somehow correct it. Then I stumbled upon your thread to Permanently Disable Windows Defender. Once disabled, all my problems disappeared.
    Thank you again.

    It worked like a charm.

    Above method is pretty simple and it disabled my windows 10 defender thing. Which I hate. Hehe.

    I'm on latest Dev edition after the anniversary update and simply used a defender script for regedit to turn it off, you might still get updates for it but they fail download. I turned them off in group policy so now I never see anything defender related ever now. I use malwarebytes and avast in tandem and it's worked perfectly for years. Win Defender is a useless app IMO and almost any malware or virus knows how to get around it. First thing I disable on a new install, it's a joke.
