How To Disable Windows Defender

how-to-disable-windows-defender-1For those of you using Windows 8 and 10, Windows Defender shouldn’t be new to you. If you do not know what Windows Defender is, you probably must have come from Pluto. (Just kidding 🙂 ). Windows Defender is a pre-installed Anti-virus software that comes with Windows 8 and Windows 10, I have no say on its lapses as it performs just a great job, and is good to go with. But for a person like me who is so in love with Norton, I think, I’ll have to let the Windows Defender rest a bit. If for any reason, you wish to let yours rest by disabling it, then, this guide is for you. I will not for any reason advise you to disable Windows Defender when you have no strong Anti-virus software for substitution. Because surfing web without protection is more harmful than getting knocked down by a car.
