Windows 10: Turn On or Off Windows Defender in Windows 10
Thanks. I'll just have to try it and keep an eye on it.. seems my Windows 10 does things differently then most.. has a mind of it's won.
You may be able to do it with the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Signature Updates
Set 'ScheduleDay' to 8
(8 = Never)
The easy way to fix No Window Defender
Go to Update & Security
click on Window Defender
click on USE WINDOW DEFENDER
THERE YOU GO THE EASY WAY!!!!
Hello, nice tutorial you made, but when I try to navigate to Windows Defender in Local Group Policy, there is nothing there, look this printscreen I took if you can:
How do I proceed now? Should I use the registry? By the way my Windows is Windows 10 Pro 64bits and is activated.
Hello ViTosS, and welcome to Ten Forums.
I'm not sure why you don't have that policy listed in your Group Policy. It's still in mine. Different language the reason maybe??
Anyways, you can use OPTION TWO to set this as well if you like.
Hey, thank you.
Yeah my Windows 10 is in portuguese brazilian, I don't know if it is because of that but Windows Defender is still called as ''Windows Defender'', so it should be showing there... Anyway, I will try the second option then, thanks.
You're welcome. Please let us know how it went.
I have the same issue. I have been trying to follow what is written here, but I am having absolutely no luck. I uninstalled the malware fighter software that was installed, but I am still unable to get WD to start.
What AV program did you have installed that disabled WD?
