Windows 7: Windows Defender nag after Windows update

18 Sep 2013   #11

XP Pro (x86) | 7 HP (x86) & (x64) | 7 Pro (x64)

Thank you 'DavidW7ncus' for your generosity of time.

I tracked down a solution, via forum

Two steps
1. Services Setting:-
Start > Run:= services.msc
Services (dialog) > Services (Local)
- Name field can be sorted A-Z or Z-A ... by clicking the "Name" header
Scroll down to ... "Windows Defender"
RClick > Properties
Windows Defender Properties (Local Computer) ... dialog
General (tab)
Startup type:= Disabled ... selected from drop down list

2. CCleaner
Open CCleaner ... I use installed free version
Tools (icon)
"Startup" mode (click) ... under "Uninstall"
Startup (mode)
Windows (tab)
- scroll down to "Windows Defender" > RClick > Disable
Close CCleaner
- and you are done
