Windows Defender

How to disable Windows Defender without paying $$$? Antivirus service provider pointed to Microsoft. Microsoft points to computer manufacturer. Manufacturer wants $ if you are out of warranty before going any further.

Re: Windows Defender

go into your control panel -> windows defender -> tools -> software explorer -> select show for all users -> then select windows defender  -> select remove. Now go into tools again and select options -> untick the box that says automatically scan my computer.

 

Now the Windows Defender will stop troubling you.
