    you dont need to disable WD from Group Policy Editor, because WD it's automatically disabled once you install another AV.

    Nsudo: M2-Team NSudo (New Version 4.0)

    In admin CMD (adapt path to nsudoc.exe or navigate to it's folder):

    Code:
    @start /b "NSudo - TrustedInstaller" "nsudoc.exe" -U:T "%windir%\system32\cmd.exe"
    It will open CMD with TI permission, then enter the two lines from aboddi in reverse order.

    maestrosir, Nucleus
    Winaero Tweaker cannot disable or remove Windows Defender Security Centre, but it can disable Windows Defender.
    I think maestrosir meant that he disabled Windows Defender using my app.
    I'll update Winaero Tweaker to get rid of the tray icon in Creators Update.
