So…I’ve already written two articles about how to disable Windows Defender. However, a user here recently posted a comment that they were still having problems. So…here is yet one MORE way to get rid yourself of that Pesky Windows Defender app from your system running Windows Vista, or the latest Microsoft release, Windows Server 2008 (yup it comes installed and enabled by default).
1: Click Start Button and Type Services. Click Services once it appears:
2: Scroll Down and Right Click on Windows Defender then Click Properties
3: Click Down Arrow under Startup type: and Click Disabled. Click OK a few times to apply changes.
Groovy! Your Done! The next time you reboot your machine, there is NO WAY Windows Defender will start. Looking back, this is most likely what I should have recommended in previous articles but oh well.
Any questions or comments, let me know here or in the forum!
Btw, earlier I wrote a few articles on this same subject. Take a look if interested:
