    How do I turn off real -time protection?

    Hi Rahul,

    If you have Windows 10, you are getting the latest antivirus protection with Windows Defender. Windows Defender actively helps in protecting your PC from malware (malicious software), viruses, and security threats. Windows Defender uses real-time protection.

    To turn Windows Defender real-time protection on or off, follow the steps below:

    • Select the Start button, then select Settings >
      Update & Security.
    • Select Windows Defender, then turn Real-time protection
      on or off.
    If the on /off button is greyed out, refer to the answer of José Antonio
    Pontón Posada CEO on this thread for troubleshooting steps.

    Let us know if you have other concerns.

    Hi,

    Windows Defender is built-in to Windows 10. Turning on the Windows Defender will help to protect your PC by scanning for malware, viruses and security threats. It uses real-time protection to scan everything you download or run on your PC.

    To turn Windows Defender real-time protection on, you can follow the steps below:

    1. Click on the Start Menu and choose Settings.

    2. In the Setting window, select Update and Security.

    3. In Update and Security -> Windows Defender
    -> Turn on Real-time protection. See screenshot below:
