    Help with powershell/group policy - extra registry settings


    So i'm working on cleaning up/out a Veeeeery long running windows install. group policy, task scheduler, and event viewer touching up are on the to-do.

    Problem is, I cant get past the first annoyance Help with powershell/group policy - extra registry settings :p

    So ive installed the RSAT tools to afford me the ability to clean out the GP registry via powershell.

    ive followed this sdmsoftware.com/group-policy-blog/tips-tricks/removing-extra-registry-settings-from-gpos/ as best as I can, however I dont know the -Name as I didnt create the policy much less have any idea where its smooshed away it.

    Without providing that, it asks me for the guid instead. And thats where my face meets wall. No clue how to find the GUID of a policy that I never knew existed until I ran rsop.msc

    anyone have anything for me? Help with powershell/group policy - extra registry settings :p

  2. Windows Defender Group Policy Disabeled

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft community.

    As you have stated you want to disable the group policy so that you can run windows defender on the computer.

    I would like to suggest few troubleshooting steps:

    Method 1: Disable group policy from gpedit.msc


    • Press Windows key + R.

    • Type gpedit.msc and click Ok.(it will open Local Group policy editor)

    • Go to Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Windows Defender.

    • In the right pane of
      Windows Defender
      in Local Group Policy Editor, double click/tap on the
      Turn off Windows Defender
      policy to edit it.

    • Select (dot) Not Configured or
      Disabled, click/tap on OK,

    • When finished, you can close the Local Group Policy Editor if you like.
    If the issue still persist you can follow method 2.

    Method 2: Disable group policy from registry.

    Important: This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow
    these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the
    article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    • Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender

    • Right Click on Window Defender to create a new Dword.

    • Click on New and Select Dword.

    • Type DisableAntiSpyware.

    • Right click on DisableAntiSpyware and click on modify.

    • Set the value to 0 instead of 1.
