    Found something interesting, it looks like it is an issue with that specific blu tooth speaker. A different one is working fine,

    A new version of Visual C++ Redistributable Runtimes All-in-One is available in the TechPowerUp Downloads section.

    The new version is: Jan 2021 > LINK <

    This archive contains the latest version (January 2021) of all VCRedist Visual Studio C++ runtimes, installable with a single click by running the included batch file installer.

    To install, run the included install_all.bat with admin privileges (right click, "Run as administrator")

    The download includes the VC_Redist runtime packages for Visual C++ 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019. Both 32-bit and 64-bit are supported. The files included are the English language version.

    When doing a fresh Windows OS install, it's recommended to always install all the various C++ runtimes, which is why this all-in-one pack was created. It helps to avoid problems with programs that cause error messages like "side-by-side configuration is incorrect", or "Missing MSVCRT.DLL" or "MSVCP140.DLL".

    All files are digitally signed by Microsoft, which guarantees they are unaltered.

    Hi All,
    Hoping someone can help me with permanently deleting Win Defender.
    I am attempting to follow the steps on page 1 by Spartan. I am having trouble with couple of steps, firstly this one:

    Navigate to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Defender > then double click on Turn off Windows Defender and enable that rule then press Apply then OK to exit

    When i go into Windows Components Folder, I see Windows Defender Smart Screen and Windows Security, which I think is the one I am suppose to be targeting. However, I dont see any place to enable the rule or turn it off, as stated.They are just folders with files.

    The other issue I am running into is with Autoruns. I am unable to delete the following WinDefen entries:

    [​IMG]

    I keep getting a message saying "Error - Access Denied"

    I am not sure if thats because I was unable to complete the first step accurately. Hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

    Thanks

    No need for all that anymore

    1) Disable Smart Screen from Settings > Update & Security > Windows Security > App & Browser Control (turn them all off)

    2) Now go into the Windows Defender settings and turn off all the 4 radio buttons

    3) Immediately after doing that, double click on this reg file: Disable Windows Defender.reg

    Could you please explain this step?
    2) Now go into the Windows Defender settings and turn off all the 4 radio buttons

    Not sure where i go for the radio buttons or where defender settings is located. I cant locate either. Sorry for the dumb question.

    PC Settings > Update & Security > Windows Security > then look for the Windows Defender (manage threat settings I think the name is) and turn off the 4 radio buttons which include cloud based protection and tamper protection)

    I can't give you exact steps as I have it disabled on my system from its roots so I can't see them anymore it's very simple

    I believe I got it. It was just named something different virus and threat protections, which is what confused me. I doubted myself as I had those off based on your guide.

    I did click on the disable win defender reg file, hopefully that was the correct one.

    Really appreciate the guide and the extra help. Thanks a lot.

    Those were the exact settings that appeared which I turned off.
    Great guide which I would encourage everyone to check out if they are doing a clean-install. Helped me a lot.
