Using Windows 10 Professional with all the latest updates.

Windows Defender is falsely identifying and deleting some of the troubleshooting programs that I use. Using the "Turn Windows Defender Firewall on or off" link has no effect so there must be some distinction between firewall and antivirus that does not show in the controls.

How do I temporarily disable Windows Defender?

Some people feel differently, I personally like some of the new changes and prefer some of the old ways. It's all a matter of personal preference and opinion.

People who like Windows 10's user interface over Windows 7 are just bad, bad people. :D

Or just reasonable people who understand and accept change.
