Disable Windows Defender Batch File

by -213 views

Yous’re unlikely to find anyone here with the specific noesis yous seek, since the typical consumer and their support aren’t in need of such avant-garde controls.

In fact, the very controls you seek were originally contained in the earlier Microsoft Security Essentials product that supported Windows XP, Vista and notwithstanding remains for the soon to be finish-of-life Windows 7 operating systems.  Every bit I call up though, these remediation option controls wee removed in later versions, since unfortunately the typical consumer often used them improperly, resulting in a reduction of security that eventually allowed them to infect their own device.

However, in order to maintain the functioning of these controls for enterprise and other technical environments, where the expertise exists in firm to perform this type of management, such complex settings were moved into the various management tools provided to those customers.

In this case, the remediation options still exist, they’re simply not exposed in the interface and instead controlled via the various options referenced in the following certificate, again meant for use by IT professionals or others with a background in security management.

I won’t endeavor to provide aid in performing these settings, as I neither use them myself nor recommend them, since equally I mentioned to a higher place most consumer users unaware of their existence volition just terminate up causing themselves grief past trying to use them.  You tin make up one’s mind for yourself how you wish to continue.

Thanks for the link to the documentation. Reading this leaves me with two questions:

1. How can whatsoever of this be configured? (Probably useless, meet 2.)

2. Does Windows Defender antivirus not back up blocking file admission (anymore)? Does it accept to move the detected file out of the way as its but option? If that’s true, information technology’south not a very capable antivirus solution and I should consider not using it whatsoever longer. And if I determine that, I’ll probably not use any antivirus anymore. It was never helpful for me, only harmful a few times.

Thanks for the link to the documentation. Reading this leaves me with 2 questions:

1. How tin any of this be configured? (Probably useless, see two.)

2. Does Windows Defender antivirus not back up blocking file access (anymore)? Does it have to move the detected file out of the way as its only option? If that’south true, it’s not a very capable antivirus solution and I should consider not using it whatever longer. And if I decide that, I’ll probably not use any antivirus anymore. It was never helpful for me, only harmful a few times.

1. Sad, as I stated I don’t employ these settings and even if I did, I don’t recommend them, I just wanted to brand you aware of their existence equally an choice.

2. Oasis’t looked closely at the settings, so don’t know precisely what’s still available.  Often the classification has inverse, but the actions haven’t, and so information technology may only be semantics or possibly y’all’re correct and the deportment have truly changed.  I do know that the common corruption of these settings that got them removed from MSE were to quarantine everything, which undoubtedly caused many consumers and thus Microsoft lots of boosted support issues.

Defender is an extremely capable security solution, with AV only a tiny component whatsoever longer, but it was initially and always designed as a costless AV replacement for those consumer or pocket-sized business organization users who were unlikely to pay for or properly maintain a commercial AV program.

This means that Microsoft has over time tuned the Windows Defender product for increased protection of the less technically capable, making it more than difficult and unfriendly for those more than technically knowledgeable users who wish to use tools or other applications that operate either outside or on the fringes of acceptable practice.  The more than recent moves to AI or car learning detection accept fabricated that fifty-fifty more hard, since the automated decisions these systems brand often aren’t tolerant of questionable apps or functioning.

I experienced this problems myself when working every bit a security professional, and then often had to use other security applications instead, since the companies I was performing piece of work for would have considered operating with no AV on their networks as negligence.

However, since leaving that profession I personally use a PC mostly the same as any consumer today and and so take seen no such issues in several years.  At the aforementioned fourth dimension, I can’t recollect the last time I actually received a malware notification from Defender for anything other than a exam using the Eicar file, so in truth I probable don’t need an AV either.

In my case though, I plan to go along it operating to find the potential exception that manages to go past all of the built-in vulnerability guards that at present exist within Windows, which are where most malicious software is being blocked nowadays.  AV is simply the last layer of defense force, mostly there to protect the user from his ain personal mistakes that invite malware into the arrangement.

That’s all fine, but I use Procedure Hacker as my main job managing director (a lot more capable than the congenital-in one from Windows; similar to Sysinternals Process Explorer) and while debugging the applications I develop, getting precise and reliable data on my processes, apace, is sometimes essential. This is far from “questionable” or “adequate practise”. AV could have eaten Visual Studio merely also with similar effects. It is not what the typical (consumer) end user does with their computers, but some people take to brand all those things the consumers can use.

It’s skilful to know that others have the same issue now, and information technology’s alarming to see that this state of affairs comes and goes for weeks now. It just hit me today, too. I wouldn’t know where to report this type of event every bit Microsoft generally isn’t an outgoing company. Other AV companies take spider web submit forms for that, once you find them.

A disquisitional piece of information you left out, that you’re a developer, since in that case I’d accept immediately recommended you switch to another security product.  We’ve often seen issues that occur during development, since Defender is designed for the (generally consumer) user and not those using and requiring development tools.

You never asked for a place to submit the file and as a programmer on Windows I’d call back you lot’d already be aware, but here’s the URL for that including the pages specific to developers, whom are the almost appropriate to make such submissions.  By that I hateful that in a example like this, the programmer of the Process Hacker application itself should brand the submission, since they’re the ones who demand to be enlightened and deal with any true issues that Microsoft might want to bring to their attention.

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/wdsi/filesubmission

Though the URL may have changed slightly over the years, that submission form has existed on the current Microsoft global security website for as long as they’ve been producing a security product.

Every bit an bated, I just downloaded the installer for Process Hacker from what I believe was the official website and found that the file was signed in 2016 using an SHA-1 signature, which Microsoft and others have deprecated support for due to it beingness an insecure protocol.  This may be the reason for the detection and if so isn’t likely to get away until someone updates that file with a recently compiled version using a more current and secure protocol.

This is only a estimate listen you, based on recent issues similar to this one I’ve seen, which though it doesn’t appear to directly relate to the specific detection, might let the tool to be misused by other truly malicious software.

Preparing for the mandatory use of SHA1 – Windows Sysinternals | Microsoft Docs

Note that the page also mentions the Microsoft providedSysinternals binaries in the More information section of that aforementioned document, which they were planning to update for this aforementioned reason on July 1st, 2019.
