  3. Turn On or Off Windows Defender Real-time Protection in Windows 10

    You can disable Windows Defender Real-time Protection in Local Group Policy Editor (Run: gpedit.msc then select: Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Windows Defender/Real-time Protection and enable the "Turn off Real-time Protection" setting). It won't turn back on automatically and Windows Defender doestn't even notice that there's something wrong (it will stay green).

    I use it, WD seems to be adequate.

  6. I know, but quick antivirus scan can be useful from time to time and furthermore after completely disabling Windows Defender you get that annoying window, informing you that WD is turned off, every time the computer starts.

    Using the merge registry to enable WD on the above method, have noticed that while running Emsisoft Emergency Kit (EEK) that the registry created by the utility (Enable_Windows_Defender_Real-Time_Protection.reg) is when EEK is run listed as a (from the log file):

    Scan start: 11/8/2015 10:44:19 PMValue: HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-2610782532-1500699501-3633152452-1000\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\RUN -> WINDOWS DEFENDER detected: Backdoor.Win32.BlackShades (A)

    realizing this may be a false/positive curious as to why it would see the registry file as such.

  9. Malware usually disables WD , so it sees the key as a threat, does not matter, if it is 1 or 0.

    On an upgrade to W10 from W7 the WD icon didn't show so I used the above utility to enable it. Then a little later ran EEK it latched on the registry file the utility created showing it as a BackDoor.BlackShades. Let me make this clear the BackDoor did not show in EEK til I ran the utility. It did not show prior to running the utility. The utility itself creates the registry file that EEK finds as a Trojan. I can remove the reg file and EEK shows nothing I can re-run the utility and EEK will again show it as a Trojan.
    I am aware of the fact that malware likes to disable A/V but this particular issue is caused by triggering the icon to show in the task bar.

    Hello tazmo, *Smile

    It's a false positive by EEK since the .reg file is manually setting the group policy to disable Windows Defender real-time protection.

    That's what I thought EEK sees it as an attachment ergo BlackShades and in this case 'enabling' does the same thing.

    Hello AmirAcle, *Smile

    It looks like Windows Defender has been disabled. Do you have a 3rd party AV program installed? If so, that would be why.
