How to Permanently Disable Windows Defender Home Edition

Windows Defender Task Manager

Unlike the pro version, Windows Home edition doesn’t have a group policy editor (gpedit) preinstalled. So it’s a bit tricky to disable the antimalware  service executable permanently.

Follow these steps to disable Windows defender antivirus on Windows home.

1. Open Windows Security > Virus and Threat Protection > Turn off real time protection

2. Turn off all the available option like Tamper Protection 

3. Download the gpedit-enabler.bat here []

4. Right click on the file and Run as administrator

5. After it’s finish installing, use Windows Key + R

6. When the dialog open, type gpedit.msc and press enter

7. Navigate to :

Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Defender Antivirus

8. Navigate to Turn off Windows Defender Antivirus policy, double click on it

9. Then, Turn off windows defender antivirus, select Enabled

10. Click OK and Apply button and Restart

The article above is the same to disable windows defender permanently. But without need to install gpedit-intsaller.

It is always annoying to have antimalware that dictates our activity using our computer, it will always scan the disk whenever we are operating with it. It’s not gonna hurt my computer that much if I am just using it to install some software or doing light stuff with the computer, as I have so many resources dedicated to it. 

But as soon as i am using heavy load requires many read and write to the disk and the antivirus also working at the same time, the antivirus will not help me, it just making my computer work twice harder. For the actual proes and the scanning from the antivirus.

I don’t worry about viruses because I'm pretty aware of what I want to install and what I should not install, so any antivirus will not be necessary in any computer I use.

You can disable windows defender real time temporarily by just turning it off using the defender panel, but once you restart the OS, it will automatically turn on itself and it’s kind of annoying.

As an expert computer user, our job requires a lot of memory to use. Without slowing down the computer, we don’t have any antivirus on our system. We will be aware of what kind of program can harm our computer or not. So those antiviruses are completely unnecessary for us.
