    does anyone know how to disable windows defender application control?

    i keep getting a blue dialog coming up when i try and run a replaced file, says your organization has used windows defender application control to block this app.

    what's annoying is i've already uninstalled all the defender packages. not sure why this crap is happening, any ideas?

    Use a 3. party AV App and disable defender fully! Is the fasted 'work around'!
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    looks like it was just a bug or something, replaced x file with newer one and no stupid defender block warning.

    no offence but those two suggestions weren't to do with WDAC. spent ages googling before finding out it's a bug.
