    Disabling Virus Protection Prog's That Came with New HP pc ?


    Hello,

    Hope i didn't ask this previously, but if I did, i can't find
    the Post anywhere. If so, I apologize, and will blame
    it on old-age now.

    Son has a new HP W10 pc.

    He would like to run it with Windows Defender, but apparently Windows Defender
    won't run if there are other virus protection programs running (or just installed even ?).

    True ?

    If so, how would he go about disabling, or better yet totally deleting all of them
    (probably McAfee) ?

    General Question: Windows Defender usually considered "adequate" protection ?
    Is it "pretty good" these days ?

    Thanks, Great Forum and Folks,
    Bob

    :)

    Virus Protection

    I'd Suggest You Better Skip The Idea of Using Those Security Suites. Better Use Some Free To Use Yet HIghly Rated For VIrus Protection Engines. Here's What I Suggest Top Three...


    1. Avira AntiVir Personal Classic Edition
    2. Avast! Home Edition
    3. AVG Free


    Avira Is Found To Trigger Less False Alarms Than Anyother AV (Even Paid Don't Have That Kind'a Accuracy), & Is Much Better Than some of The Paid Ones. Next Is Avast!, For It's Individual Scanner Protection & It's Unique VRDB (Virus Recovery Database) Feature.

    If You're Looking For Firewall Protection Then Again, The Free Stuff Come To The Rescue.


    1. ZoneAlarm Free
    2. Comodo Firewall Pro.
    3. PC Tools Firewall


    We All Know How Good ZA Firewall Can Be..! Comodo Has Passed All The Leak Test That Can Be Serious For Your System Security. PC Tools Is Not New To The Scene Here, Still Has Very Good Firewall With Less Questions Asked, Recomended For NewBie.

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community and being a part of Windows 10.

    I understand your concern about accessing the operating system with the security notification on your device. We will help you with this issue.

    Do let us know the following to assist you better with this issue:

    • Have you installed any third-party anti-virus software on your device?
    • Have you made any changes to the operating system prior to this issue?
    • What is the complete error code/ error message of this issue?
    • When exactly you get this error pop-up?

    Try the below troubleshooting steps and check if it helps.

    Step 1: If you have installed any third-party anti-virus software, I suggest you to disable it and check if it issue persists.

    NOTE: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you shouldn't disable your antivirus software. If you have to temporarily disable it to install other software,
    you should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you're connected to the Internet or a network while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    If the issue still persists, I suggest you to uninstall the third-party anti-virus software.

    Step 2: I suggest you to run Windows Defender on your device and check if it helps.

    Windows Defender is malware protection that is included with and built into Windows 10. This software helps identify and remove viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. So, you do not need to install any third party antivirus applications.

    Hope it helps. Get back to us with an updated status of this issue for further assistance.

    Disabling Virus Protection Prog's That Came with New HP pc ?

    Can I disable only the "Update virus protection" notifications?


    I have a Windows 10 VM and if it's not connected for more than a day there is a notification to update virus protection. It's getting a little annoying. The solutions I have found by searching suggest disabling virus notifications entirely but I don't want to do that. All I want to do is disable these notifications that say Windows anti-virus is out of date. Is that possible?

    Is anyone else running a Windows 10 in a VM and how do you deal with this?

    Thanks
