Hi guys. What is a firewall in general and why I personally do not recommend disabling it? A firewall, or what it is called Firewall in English, is a program that looks at which programs are climbing onto the network, and she herself knows how to do this and not.
That is, a firewall is what controls network connections in Windows. In a sense, this is even more important than the work of an antivirus. And I will try to explain in simple words why.
What does an antivirus do? The antivirus looks at what you have on your computer, regularly checks it for viruses or does it a little slowly, but constantly. There are all kinds of technologies such as heuristic analysis and the like. Well, that is, the antivirus catches the virus and here I want to emphasize what exactly it catches. The firewall is not related to viruses at all, it just controls access to Internet programs. Those programs that have a bad reputation. they will not be able to go online. And it could be a virus, or more specifically a trojan that wants to transfer data to its creator! That is, the antivirus may not immediately detect it, but the firewall will not allow access to the network to such a stranger and the trojan will not be able to transfer your passwords and logins to the hacker. Well, a little bit clear? Hope so!
So what about the importance of this firewall, you hope you understand. I’ll write to you what I did, but if you want, you can not read it and go straight to disabling the firewall in Windows 10. So look, I installed Outpost Firewall (I think this is the best firewall) and allowed access to it network only a limited number of programs, and then put it in lock mode. And now he allows Internet access only to those programs that I have listed! And to everyone else. a ban. That is, you understand that now no matter what my virus is, it will not be able to send anything to the hacker, since access to the Internet will be blocked for him!
Well, that’s it! Now I will show how to disable this firewall in Windows 10! So look, right-click on Start and select Control Panel in the menu (and this menu can also be called with the Win X buttons):
Then among the icons, look for Windows Firewall and start it:

Then such a window opens, here you click here on this button:
Now look, here you will have two settings and here you need to put a tick in both of the boxes to disable, that is, at the top and bottom:
That’s it! Now you have disabled the firewall in Windows 10, after which there will be such a window with red stripes, well, such as a computer in danger:
But since I’m already writing about disabling Windows security, then I will write and how to disable the defender!
How to disable Windows 10 Defender forever?
Defender, unlike the firewall, already performs a slightly different role, it is essentially a built-in antivirus. But as you know, due to the fact that it is a Windows antivirus, few people like it precisely because it is a Windows antivirus. And many people want to disable it, because they install a third-party antivirus, and for some users this defender protects so much that the computer slows down, such things gentlemen!
To disconnect, we again go to the Control Panel and there already launch the Windows Defender icon:
Then a window will open where you need to click on Options:
The Windows setup window will start, there you need to move all the sliders so that they are in the Off state:
After that, the Defender himself will already blush:
Well, that’s all, I showed how to disable the built-in Defender and the Firewall (aka firewall). But look carefully and just do not turn them off, but only when you really need it, well, for example, if you are going to install a third-party antivirus.
Well, that’s all, I hope that I wrote everything normally and that everything was clear to you. I wish you good luck and that you have no problems and everything was nishtyak
