    I can't turn on my real-time protection and it is saying "This setting is managed by your administrator". I reformatted my pc once because of this and now this has been my problem again.

  2. I can't turn on Windows Defender Real Time Protection

    We appreciate your response. We suggest that you try to turn on Windows Defender Real Time Protection from a Hidden Administrator account. To enable Hidden Administrator, the following are the steps:

    • Right-click on the Start button and select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • In the command prompt, type in net user administrator /active:yes and press Enter.
    • Log out and log back in using the Administrator account.

    I’m not sure what’s going on there, but you might want to run some scans in order to make sure that malware hasn’t assumed the role of administrator and turned off Defender’s real-time protection with Group Policy:

    Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool:

    Kaspersky Removal Tool 2015

    Emsisoft Emergency Kit:

    Emsisoft - Emergency Kit: Free Portable Malware Scan and Removal

    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (free version only):

    Antivirus for Windows 10 | Windows Antivirus | Malwarebytes Windows 10

    Eset Online Scanner:

    http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner/

    Some other trusted third-party malware-removal tools are listed here:

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us...al-tools/d824b9af-ebd8-4c47-94e2-8ee6c544c100

    Then you can use these REG commands to toggle the Group Policy setting for Windows Defender’s real-time protection.

    Click on the Start button and select Windows Powershell (Admin) and then copy, paste, and enter the command:

    Turn off Windows Defender’s real-time protection:

    REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Real-Time Protection" /v DisableRealtimeMonitoring /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

    Turn on Windows Defender’s real-time protection:

    REG DELETE "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Real-Time Protection" /v DisableRealtimeMonitoring

    real-time protection

    Hi Zmnakohama,

    This is Will C an Independent Advisor and I will be happy to assist you with this. I understand that you are trying to disable realtime protection from Windows Defender.

    Try these steps to disable the Real Time Protection feature of Windows Defender.

    First, in newer version of windows there is a feature called Tamper Protection, this has to be turned off first, otherwise real time protection will just come back on sometime.

    To turn Tamper Protection OFF:

    1) Go to Windows Security ( just type Windows Security in the search box)

    2) Under Virus & threat protection, look for Virus & threat protection settings then go to Manage settings

    3) Switch Tamper Protection to Off

    To disable real-time protection:

    1) Open Local Group Policy Editor (search gpedit by typing it in the search box)

    2) Go to Computer Configuration then Administrative Templates

    3) Under Windows Components, go to Microsoft Defender Antivirus then Real-time Protection

    4) Enable Turn off real-time protection

    5) Finally, Reboot

    Hope this helps. Have a great day!
