Windows 1803 build uses windows defender
Just had Windows 10 version 1803 build installed onto my computer. Windows Defender antivirus has taken over. When I checkout the current antivirus programs on my computer, I see defender (which is turned on and NIS (which is turned off). I cannot turn on NIS because that capability has been ghosted by Windows 10 even if I temporarily turn off defender. I guess the ghosting is Windows 10's way of preventing two antivirus programs from working at the same time because that would substantially slow down the computer and Windows 10 has chosen defender. When I attempt to turn off defender, my computer says defender is snoozing and the turn off is temporary. I've found out defender can be permanently turned off with a special version of Windows 10 which I don't have.
I want to turn on and use NIS antivirus and turn off Windows defender antivirus. How can I do that?
