  2. Turning on spyware and virus protection

    I have Windows 10 and have been advised that both my spyware and virus protections are not turned on. I have tried to turn them on but to no avail. I do not have any competing protection installed on my computer. Please advise as to how to proceed.

    How can I turn off virus protection?

    Hello! I am an Independent Advisor, I would love to help you out!

    I would suggest to only turn off virus protection for a short duration such as during the installation of an app that can't be installed otherwise.

    The steps to turn off windows defender are:

    1. Select Start button > Settings > Update & Security > Windows Security > Virus & threat protection > virus & threat protections settings

    2. Switch Real-time protection to Off. Note that scheduled scans will continue to run. However, files that are downloaded or installed will not be scanned.
