Yesterday I was offered the chance to install the Windows 10 October 2020 Update (20H2) as an optional update and today I see that WSA was set to Off and Defender was set to on. Is this normal behavior? Noting a general dislike of Defender for virus scanning and enabling WSA was a matter of:
- Download the latest version of WSA and taking note of my keycode
- Shutdown WSA protection
- Turn off Defender as per https://www.wikihow.com/Turn-Off-Windows-Defender-in-Windows-10
- Go back into Settings / Virus & Threat Protection to confirm that WSA is turned on (which it was).
is this the correct sequence? Even though the WSA firewall is on, I see that the Defender firewall s also protecting the Domain / Private / Public networks within Windows 10. Is this the normal behavior too? Please advise.
