Since Vista,Microsoft 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, defender will probably wasting precious resources , there’s no need to have more than one application running at a time.
The problem with all Defender versions in Windows Vista and above is it’s integrated into the operating system and installs by default with no visible or hidden option to uninstall. Many people are looking for ways to disable or remove it from their system as they prefer to use other software , for example on Windows 8 and 10 you cannot turn off Microsoft Defender completely anymore , A click on Settings in Microsoft Defender opens the control panel for the program in the new Windows Settings application. You can turn the program’s real-time protection off temporarily, but if it’s off for a while Windows will turn it back on automatically. It is unclear why Microsoft made the decision to change the behavior of Microsoft Defender in this regard. What is certain however is that it will annoy users who want to disable it permanently on the computer they are working on. Defender Control is a small Portable freeware which will allow you to disable Microsoft Defenderr in Windows 10 completely.

How to use Defender control:
Download Defender control and unzip it then run the program , Our recommendation is please use the “Add it to the exclusion list” feature (Under the menu) after running the software first time , So you won’t be affected by possible false alerts. When you use this feature, a shortcut will be created on the desktop.Excluded defender control path is “C:\Program Files (x86)\DefenderControl\dControl.exe”

To Disable – Enable Microsoft Defender please click the appropriate button , you can also Launch Microsoft Defender or Microsoft Defender settings (Under the menu button) with one click.
NOTE 1 : If Microsoft 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, sometimes program may need to wait 3-5 second to turn Microsoft Defender on or Off .
If you cannot enable “Windows Defender” after disabling it with “Defender Control”, please use “Enable windows defender” butoon and restart the system then wait a few minutes for Windows Defender to be automatically activated after the system is turned

You mean ?!
first run the .vbs ….
….then run your tool?
Actually I did not do that. Do I have to run the .vbs now, or do I have to do anything else??
before use "Defender control" software
Great! it worked, I was completely lost, thanks. But when do we use ‘Defender_Settings.vbs’ ??
Please use safe mode
hey um i pressed disable than when i try to enable it it does not work and it wont eweven show my virus a threat protectoin thing . is the a fix
Why not open source the project since it’s free and gets a lot of attention?
"My only complaint is that Malwarebytes/Superantispyware detect it as
@PcModSquad – add an "exception" or add to "Allowed/Trusted Items" list in the Superantispyware program so DFCONTROL.EXE will no longer flag it as a trojan.
maybe the Sordum Team should contact the creator of SuperAntiSpyware program and report the false positive to them.
Well it’s not working how it should, after you turn defender back on, it wont start unless you restart the pc and that SHOULD NOT HAPPEN.
Thanks. It took some effort but it was worth it. I had a hard time in that part where the RAR password is written differently everywhere.
(Teşekkürlerrr. Biraz uğraştırdı ama değdi. RAR şifresi her yerde farklı yazılmış o kısımda da zorlandım.)
Try it On safe mode
Guys, please help me, when i try to turn defender back on it gives me error. both through this app which turns orange and in windows security settings. how do i turn defender back on ?
EDIT : Fixed on Safe mode
Why does windows defender detect this program as a virus?
(Windows defender bu proğramı virüs olarak algılıyor neden acaba?)
I know how to deactivate permanently Microsoft Defender without third party software, first go into settings, then security, open defender config turn off all modules, then open task scheduler, in left panel open task manager library > Microsoft > Windows Defender, then click in "Windows defender" (on left panel), in right panel select whole tasks (CRTL + A), open the context menu at right panel then choose "disable", Microsoft defender will stop scanning and detecting "malicious files".
Great little tool for disabling the annoying xxyyzz false positive = deleted files "feature" of windows.
I also use a write protected USB stick as well for storing things like this so windows cannot physically delete them.
no it doesn’t, would make it easy for bad actors to abuse it, that’s all it would do.
Estoy en un bucle que no salgo para abrir windows defender necesito defender control, y no me deja instalar defender control porque lo considera un virus .
¿Qué puedo hacer??
silent parameters would be great
