    Now that the protection feature is pre-installed, here are steps on how to disable it for users who don’t require it

    Windows Defender is an anti-malware and anti-virus protection feature that was made to, well, keep the computer safe. It had always been available, but installing it was optional for the Windows XP and Windows 7. But in the latest Windows 10, it’s already pre-installed.

    It’s fine in its roles of keeping your computer safe against regular threats, but it won’t accommodate any alternate anti-virus features. However, the Defender can automatically disable itself when you install another anti-virus feature, but disabling it permanently is tricky. Disabling it will leave your computer vulnerable, but if you still need to disable it, here are some steps.
