I use Kaspersky so don't need Windows Defender. Just lately Defender has started popping up warning me of a potential risk. I've carried out full scans with Kaspersky & Malwarebytes & I appear to be clear but I don't want Defender popping up all the time. I've tried turning it off but it turns itself back on. And I can't get "gpedit.msc" to run. It's telling me it's not there. Any advice on shutting up Defender.
Thanks for your feedback. I now seem to be in the situation where I can't access Windows Defender at all. I have a dialogue box telling me the Defender has been turned off and is no longer monitoring my system. In which case I guess "Mission Accomplished". I don't think I will ever want to rely on Defender for security anyway.
