Microsoft Upcoming Windows 10 Antivirus Feature.
This week “Microsoft” features news about an upcoming Windows 10 feature that makes it harder to tweak the built-in anti-virus software.
Forbes contributor Lee Matthews has reported that Microsoft is going to release an update for Windows 10 in the spring of 2019 that will make it harder to tweak the built-in anti-virus feature. The new feature is being added to Windows Defender, which is the antivirus app that ships with Windows 10.
The new security option setting is known as tamper protection. When this feature is enabled, it will prevent users from tampering with the Windows Security settings.
A number of other antivirus applications also have a similar feature built-in. And the tamper protection feature is similar to the Controlled Folder Access feature that Microsoft added to Windows 10 in the summer of 2017. The Controlled Folder Access feature prevents apps from making changes to files in folders that you want to protect.
