    Windows Defender "Real Time Protection" will not disable

    So my group policy editor does not look as shown in that guide.

    There is no policy entry titled "Windows Defender" It is split into multiple headings "Windows Defender Antivirus" , "Windows Defender Application Guard", and "Windows Defender Smartscreen"

    The "Windows Defender Antivirus" entry has a policy "Turn off windows defender antivirus" which is enabled, but the real time protection slider is unaffected by this setting. Is this another policy that can be edited?

    Your Organization used Device Guard to block this app - contact your support person for more info

    Device Guard is part of Windows Defender Security Suite

    If this is a personal Computer it would be rare for it to be turned on

    If it is a Company/organisation computer, it has been set by your IT admiistrator

    If it is a personal computer, see the article below on how to turn off Device Guard:

    Hello @dencal, *Smile

    The bit below from the release notes of Windows 10 build 17063 indicate that WDAG will not be available to the Windows 10 Pro edition until the next build release instead.

    For now, WDAG is still only available for the Windows 10 Enterprise edition.

    To be truthful Brink I had noticed your highlighted "next feature update".
    This conflicts with a note further down concerning this feature.....but I take note of your response.

    It is available now to our awesome Windows Insider community to give it a try and we would like to hear your feedback.

    Yeah, the article they also linked to below states this, but it is dated "12-01-2017 - last edited Tuesday". I guess they decided to wait until the next build release after 17063.

    Announcing WDAG in PRO SKU - Microsoft Tech Community

    It certainly does confuse this.

    @dencal,

    I just tested in a Windows 10 Pro build 17063 to verify, and I was actually able to enable WDAG after all. *Party

    Unfortunately cannot do as WDAG is greyed out, stating...Cannot be installed: Virtualisation support is disabled in the firmware.


    Added
    Have successfully enabled Virtualisation in the bios and have now New Application Guard window installed.

    I would *love* to enable this feature and give it a try but I rely on VMware Workstation every single day (and am not willing to use HyperV for my VMs) so will I ever be able to use WDAG with VMware Workstation installed as well?

    I bet you're right Andre.
    Windows keeps features compressed until they are turned on, either at OOBE or later by the user.
    And .wim is basically a glorified zip format.

    Another interesting find Shawn.
    In C:\Windows\Containers there are two .wim files of Windows.

    Not sure, but it would be interesting to find more official info about "WindowsDefenderApplicationGuard.wim".
