    If you're looking for a permanent solution to disable Windows Defender, in this guide we show you how to turn it off using Group Policy and the Registry.

    Windows Defender is the free antivirus software that Microsoft includes on every installation of Windows 10 (and Windows 8.1). The security software is meant to offer the first line of defense to protect your computer against viruses, rootkits, spyware, and other types of malicious code.
    The antivirus runs automatically on your computer, but it'll disable itself automatically when it detects another security software is installed on your device. The only caveat is that unlike the Windows Defender integration with Windows 8.1, you can't permanently disable the antivirus anymore.
    Perhaps the reason is obvious, Microsoft doesn't want you to use Windows 10 with zero protection -- which it's a good reason. However, there are still those cases where users may prefer not to run an antivirus on particular scenarios. For example, on a kiosk computer that won't be joining a network and no one will be allowed to connect peripherals.
