I wish to disable Windows Defender on Windows 10 Pro, and I know I have to enable the policy Turn off Windows Defender Antivirus via:
- Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Defender Antivirus
This didn't work; Windows Defender, and it's modules, remained active.
- I tried disabling it via the Registry, adding the following key with a value of
1, but received
Error while renaming:
I restarted my PC several times, turned it off, unplugged it, all to no avail.
Has Microsoft changed something in the latest release that prevents users from turning Windows Defender off?
