Disabling WIndows defender
In earlier versions of WIndows I have manually disabled Windows defender and skipped updates for Maliscious Software removal tool as advice to my question long time ago on the need for them when F-Secure is installed.
Now with Windows 10 there seems to be a problem with that for some other malware protection software.
On my W10 32 there is ULAV and Windows Defender is off and I do not recall setting that oof.
Does ULAV handle that automatically?
The question was whether or not UALV turns Defender off or not. Not so much can you manually turn Defender off on any paritcular Windows version.
I have ULAV on W10 Pro 32 and there Defender is turned off.
I have FS TP on W10 Home 64 and there Defender is turned ott, too.
In the absence of any better information the answer seems to be that F-S products turn Defender off.
I put on the wish list that they would also turn the updates on Maliscious Software Removal Tool also off.
P.S. After I posted this I found
and verified it on my W8.1 Pro 64. My memory did not serve me right. I recalled it was not desabled.
Must be related to W7 64 Home were the licensed FS-IS did not turn it off if I now recall correctly.
