    Microsoft defender question


    Hello, I have a question: I didn‘t notice that the microsoft defender tamper protection feature was disabled. So if I had a virus/malware, could it manipulates/tamper the microsoft defender detection system so it can‘t find that virus anymore? Even though I enable this feature now, will be the microsoft defender detection system „damaged“ so it can‘t find that virus anymore?

  3. Windows update and windows defender issues

    We suggest you to avoid installing any cleaner or anti-virus software that may interrupt the function of Windows Defender. Make sure that Windows Defender is always on. To do this follow these steps:

    • On the Start menu, type Windows Defender and hit enter.
    • Click Settings.
    • Turn Real-time protection on.
    We also recommend you to install the latest update for Windows Defender.

    Should you have further questions, feel free to get back to us.

    Microsoft defender question

    Better free alternative to microsoft defender?

    Windows Defender, Bill?

    Yeah. Same thing. Definitions to stay up to date on threats of course, but thats really just a list of tricks and signatures.


    You don't have to be. You just have to be smart enough to break their shit. You can take it apart and reverse engineer it and marvel later (I was impressed by a clients just recently). It's not hard to be up to date enough to keep malware a.) mostly off your machine in the first place and b.) limit it's damage when it does appear to your machine via network and best practices.

    Some may call my approach inconvienient, but it DOES work.
