How To Completely Remove / Disable Windows Defender

Sep 11, 2015

I'm rather having much trouble with the standard virus scanner. I am not a fan of them, they block files and create errors.

Now, I have windows defender and every time I restart my pc it turns it self on, after disabling it. How to get rid of this?

Antivirus :: Permanently Disable Windows Defender?

May 4, 2015

I'm on build 10074 of Windows 10 and cannot find a way to permanently disable Windows Defender. When I go to Control Panel > Windows Defender > Settings, it brings up the new Windows 10 System Settings app which gives an option to turn "Real-time protection" off. However, the description on that states:

Real-tim protection find and stop malware form installing or running on your PC. You can turn it off temporarily, but if it's off for a while, we'll turn it back on automatically.

After about 15 minutes, it turns itself back on. How can I disable this permanently?

Nov 10, 2015

Recently I was notified that a driver installation failed. I went and checked it out, and it was a driver for HD 4600 graphics. My old system ran an i7-4790K, and when I upgraded to X99 I did not reimage my SSD.

Is there a way I can remove an update from Windows Update? The CPU I have has no iGPU, let alone HD 4600.

How To Disable Internet Access Completely For Set Amount Of Time

Sep 28, 2015

I am coming to realize that I have a serious problem spending too much time surfing the web. I wake up in the morning, get on the internet, and instead of spending thirty minutes on my computer, I end up wasting three hours.

There are plug-ins available for browsers, but they're easily disabled when I just don't feel like "being good." I know there are parental control programs, but I believe they are accessible by the administrator by just entering in a password or some such.

I know there are router settings that turn off internet during certain times of the day (e.g., 12a-5a daily), but I am looking for software or a router program that can just turn off all access to the internet for a certain span of time (e.g., thirty minutes), and that can't be disabled. After that set period of time, the web would again be accessible.

Are there any solutions: software, Windows settings, router settings, plugins, scripts (I'm not an advanced PC expert, but I can do basics like modifying the registry)?

Performance :: How To Completely Remove Dell Utilities

Jan 19, 2016

I've clean installed W10 on my Dell laptop and then installed my programs including the Dell utilities Dell Support Assist, Dell Quickset & Dell Digital Delivery.

I eventually decided these no longer offer me anything useful and have uninstalled them. However, Autoruns is currently showing the following are loaded:

Dell DataVault


Installed Directory:
C:Program FilesDellDellDataVault

I'm no fan of software which doesn't clean up properly after uninstalling it. I've disabled the above services and all is fine but I'm wary of disabling the drivers since I decided to keep the Dell Touchpad driver.

Can I disable these drivers and better still, is there a way of completely removing the Dell services and drivers which their uninstaller has failed to remove?

Cannot Turn On Windows Defender

Jan 23, 2016

I have a new Dell Computer with Windows 10. I have deleted McAfee with its on Uninstaller and also with another uninstaller.  I have no other antimalware programs running.  I have tried a number of ways to start Windows Defender, which is the only antimalware program listed in my Security area.  I have tried to start it with Services.  I get an error message as shown below. I get this error message: "The Windows Defender Service service on Local Computer started and then stopped.  Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs."  I have removed all other antimalware programs and no longer get McAfee popups.

Antivirus :: Windows Defender Cannot Be Turned Off

Jan 13, 2016

As I use a proprietary antirvirus, and on a whim, I just thought to check my Windows Defender setting, only to find to find that it was turned on*. (I could swear I turned it off, sometime in the past. I was further surprised to find that the On/Off button is disabled--so I CAN'T turn it off!

I'm further surprised to find the notice, under Settings/Windows Defender, which says "You can turn this off temporarily, but if we find that it is turned off for a while we'll turn it back on again, automatically." (One mystery solved*)

As I understand it, Windows Defender is merely Microsoft's own notion of free antivirus software--so when Windows turns Defender on again, this means I not only have two antivirus packages running (and possibly interfering with each other--involuntarily) but also that I now seem to have no choice in the matter--unless, of course, I permanently uninstall the antivirus software that I paid good money for.

Questions: How do I re-enable the Windows Defender On/Off button; and How do I DISable Windows ability to turn it on again?
