After install of EFS on windows 2016, windows defender service still running ?

Recommended Posts

recently noticed that after installing ESET FILE SECURITY (latest build) that the windows defender service is still running which is the opposite of what takes place for windows 10. Are there any specific details anyone can provide on this forum as to why its in this fashion?  This is the WinDefend service >> "Helps protect users from malware and other potentially unwanted software"

If you run "sc query windefend", is it in the stopped or running state?

I have some updated information on the windows defender being enabled in 2016 Server with ESET enabled.
If you are installing on Windows Server 2016, Microsoft recommends to uninstall Windows Defender Features 
go to >> https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/threat-protection/windows-defender-antivirus/windows-defender-antivirus-on-windows-server-2016

and section >> 
Install or uninstall Windows Defender AV on Windows Server 2016
>> removal windows defender from "roles and features" and reboot confirmed that the service of >> 
WinDefend was gone. 

Marcos. Could I suggest in the next build of ESET FILE SECURITY that we warn customer that Windows Defender is enabled and needs to be removed via roles and features?

Hi,

it is recommended to uninstall Windows Defender before installing ESET server products. However, if Defender is present after EFSW installation, it will be automatically disabled just like it's described in this article
