Since Vista, Windows Defender is included with Windows. It’s a small piece of software that runs in the background to help protect, your computer from malware (malicious software) like viruses, spyware, and other potentially unwanted software. Some spyware protection is better than none, and it’s built-in and free! But... if you are already running something that provides great anti-malware protection, the defender will probably waste precious resources, there’s no need to have more than one application running at a time.
Why should you use it
- During copying big data from PC to USB or vice versa, disabling Defender can decrease the Total Copy time
- Users may experience conflicts between Defender and their antivirus application
- Some antivirus programs ask the user to manually turn off or disable Windows Defender in Windows 10
- If you’ve got it enabled, chances are Windows Defender will start each time you boot your PC
Note: If Windows defender “Tamper Protection” is turned on, Defender Control requires the TrustedInstaller service to bypass protection and turn off the defender. Therefore If there is a problem with the TrustedInstaller service, Defender Control Application may not work properly. Sometimes the program may need to wait 3-5 seconds to turn windows defender on or Off and you may see the Orange interface during this period.
