Microsoft Admits Windows 10 Can Disable Antivirus Software That's Incompatible

22 Juin 2017

"Months before a semi-annual update is delivered to customers, interested parties can get easy access to fully running and deployable versions of the release, stay current with updates as the release progresses and becomes feature complete, and provide timely feedback on issues and bugs", Windows & Devices Group partner director, Rob Lefferts, said. Microsoft said it has "doubled down on our efforts to help AV vendors be compatible with the latest updates".

"For the small number of applications that still needed updating, we built a feature just for AV apps that would prompt the customer to install a new version of their AV app right after the update completed", explained Lefferts. "To do this, we first temporarily disabled some parts of the AV software when the update began", wrote Lefferts. "Microsoft's own free, built-in Windows Defender Antivirus does not run periodic scans without explicit customer action or provide protection until the chosen third-party AV solution is no longer protecting the Windows 10 device due to expiration".

In a previous post, Kaspersky also mentioned that Microsoft was using questionable user interface tactics to make it look as if your PC was not secure just because Windows Defender wasn't enabled, even if some other security solution was.

This June extraordinarily Microsoft Patch scheduled for Tuesday is pretty unique.

In the blog, Microsoft admitted it did temporarily disable some parts of outside security software during the last Windows 10 update but said this was done together with partners and that it provided instructions on how to reinstall outside software.

But sources in Northern Ireland have told Sky News that "negotiations haven't proceeded in a way that DUP would have expected ". We will work hard every day to gain the trust and confidence of the British people, making their priorities our priorities'.

Lefferts wrote that Windows 10 has been created to be its most secure operating system, and that Redmond partners with the AV ecosystem to protect its customers.

Microsoft had previously been fined €497m in 2004, for anti-competitive behaviour that involved bundling Windows Media Player into the operating system, thereby restricting competition for rival media player software.

Dailystar reported that Eric Doerr, the General Manager of Microsoft Security Response Center has said, "Our decision to rollover these security updates for operating systems that are not supported anymore should not be viewed as a departure from our standard servicing policies". "After removing the third-party AV, Windows 10 tricks the user into thinking it's still installed and working".

This month, we saw Microsoft issue a great number of high-priority problems and its incredible statement as it follows: "Microsoft is announcing the availability of additional guidance for critical security updates, that are at increased danger of exploitation as a result of the past and endangered nation-state attacks and disclosures".

Microsoft is under fire over a rival's claims that it is abusing its market dominance to push its own-brand Windows Defender antivirus onto consumers.

The country's Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) said the way Windows 10 handled third-party security products could "lead to unreasonable advantages for Microsoft on the software market". Microsoft will also help customers with support issues including help to uninstall and reinstall software.
