My friend bought a new HP AIO with Windows 11 x64 it has NO DEFENDER.
Where can I get this operating system? I Hate Defender.
I am on windows insider program, it has defender. I Hate It!!
Any ideas how I can get the same Windows 11 with No Defender?
Thinking about Aconis True Image with external hard drive and
changing her bios to boot from disc and cloning her new computer.
Would rather find it somewhere else, but if I have to, I will.

Why do you "hate" Windows Defender?
I don't get that.

You can disable Windows Defender realtime protection and use your computer normally. Exactly where is this feature i don't know. Grab a piece of malicious code like Eicar and save on your disc. If Windows Defender is working it should popup the virus alert, from there, click option and disable realtime protection of Windows Defender.

RegEdit
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE->Software->Policies->Microsoft->Windows Defender

Make A New D-Word:
DisableAntiSpyware
Value 1

If there are any other D-Words in your registry, change their value.
1 = on
2 = off

Enjoy!

I'd like to know also why you hate it. I use defender and malwarebytes and have had no problems.
It is kind of invasive. It digs in pretty far into your web activities. It's also way, way too sensitive to anything having to do with cracks or some pirated program. Being an antivirus is one thing, being the software police is quite another. I am not that hot on how the firewall conducts itself, too many arbitrary conditions.
That being said all those caveats really pertain to advanced users and I understand the average user is better off just being denied actions that could potentially cause trouble.
I prefer using all third party security programs that allow me, the user the ability to make the decisions, but I would like to think I know what I am doing.
Back to the OP question, I find it very hard to believe an OEM stripped out Windows Security (nee: Defender) on their system. I would think that it's more a case of the OEM shipping a trial of a security program with the new machine and Windows Security is no longer the primary security suite.
