Geting Windows Defender to work with FireAMP installed

Marius Gunnerud

When I install FireAMP on my windows 8 PC, windows defender is disabled (much the same as when installing an antivirus software).  I tried excluding it from FireAMP scan but I have a feeling that that is not the problem and that this is a Windows Defender issue and how it reacts when certain other types of software is installed.

Does anyone know of a way to get Windows Defender and FireAMP to work in parallel with eachother?

Thanks in advance.

Group policy edit:

Computer Configuration-->Administrative Templates-->Windows Components-->Windows Defender

Turn off Windows Defender = Disabled
Allow antimalware service to remain running always = Enabled

With those policies set, Defender will continue to run even after FireAMP is installed.

Hi,

Yes, I figured this out a little while back.  Thanks for posting though.
