    Is there any point install the CS Update? Install and disable with Autoruns.exe or skip it?

    Of course as always. I have no needs for software looking for updates. Can of course disable with Autoruns.exe but better without (Very importent if you have BGA:rolleyes:) Every clock cycle counts as you know:D

    How to disable the Windows Defender Security Health Service:

    While you can easily disable Windows Defender and all its startup entries/tasks in task scheduler, there is one service that is protected if you check in services.msc and won't allow you to change its status to disabled.

    Here is how you can disable it:

    1) Download NSudo 4.0
    2) Extract the content of the ZIP file to a location of your choice.
    3) Go to the following folder: NSudo v4.0\x64
    4) Right click on NSudo.exe and choose Run as Administrator
    5) Check the box which says Enable All Privileges
    6) Click the Browse Button and navigate to C:\Windows\System32
    7) type cmd.exe in the file name box at the bottom then click on the Open button
    8) your NSudo window should now look like this:

    9) Click the Run Button, the command prompt window should now launch
    10) Copy/paste the following command in the Command Prompt Window then hit Enter to run it, this will stop the Windows Defender Security Center Service: sc stop SecurityHealthService
    11) Copy/paste the following command in the Command Prompt Window then hit Enter to run it, this will disable the Windows Defender Security Center Service: sc config SecurityHealthService start= disabled

    12) Done

    As noted in my full review of Windows 10 Anniversary Update, many of the improvements in the latest version of Windows 10 simply don’t apply to typical Windows 7 or 8.1 users.

    I seriously cannot thank you enough for the awareness you're spreading among the community and the consolidation of solutions. I was planning on just ordering my laptop and playing with it with little to no tweaks, but you have shown me the light. Once again, props to @Phoenix, @Papusan and @Mr. Fox for the crazy amount of help.
