I have recently moved to CIS and have it set-up and running nicely (I think). I also wanted to install Virtual PC/XP Mode and was not able to install the Virtual PC part. MS support has suggested many possible solutions, and nothing has worked so far - the next one involves uninstalling any security applications. So, I want to make sure that I can uninstall CIS temporarily and retain all settings, logs etc so that they will be still there when I re-install. How can this be done?
PS - any suggestions on how to get Virtual PC going (failed update) would also be appreciated.
There are NO related entries in the evnt log. This is a “msu” installer to do a standalone windows update, and does not even ask for admin permissions. I tried with everything disabled and it did make a difference. I don’t think that CIS makes a difference, just going thorugh the suggestions from MS support.
Go to Defense + Behaviour Settings → General Settings → move the slider to disabled. Then try again.
When that does not help tick “Deactivate Defense+ permanently (Requires a system restart)”, restart and try again. When done don’t forget to enable D+ again. CIS will not remind you to activate it again.
