    Every time I turn on my computer, or restart, Windows Defender will turn on Real Time Protection. Is there any way to stop this.

    I don't want to install another antivirus.

    I have not tried that. Could you explain a little more how I would go about doing that.

    The only thing you need to do after running it is bring up Task Manager, startup, disable Defender notifications!

    I load MSTK afterwards with ZERO issues!

    Enjoy!

    I'm using Defender Control. It's works perfectly:

    sordum.org/9480/defender-control-v1-3/

    If you need to disable completely Windows 10 update:

    sordum.org/9470/windows-update-blocker-v1-1/

    I've been able to shut off all the defender anti-virus stuff with some reg tweaks, though I haven't removed it from settings. The shield icon in the task tray comes from an entry in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run so I just remove it and it's gone. Other reg tweaks I use to disable defender anti-virus below for reference. At least that's something that can still be configured. I think all of this stuff is in gpedit.msc, but I haven't checked it.

    Code:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender]
    "DisableAntiSpyware"=dword:00000001
    "PUAProtection"=dword:00000000
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender\MpEngine]
    "MpEnablePus"=dword:00000000
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Real-Time Protection]
    "DisableRealtimeMonitoring"=dword:00000001
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Spynet]
    "DisableBlockAtFirstSeen"=dword:00000001
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender Security Center\Family options]
    "UILockdown"=dword:00000001
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender Security Center\Notifications]
    "DisableNotifications"=dword:00000001
