The Windows 10 May 2019 Update has, in addition to new functions, some security improvements. One of these was the new "Tamper Protection" tool, which prevents malicious people and applications from changing important Windows Defender settings. Thus, any malware on the PC may not disable real-time protections, making it difficult for attackers to act.

The new feature is in the Windows Security menu and is disabled by default. To make it available, I must first have installed Windows 10 May 2019 Update on my computer. If you already have the latest version of the operating system, follow the tips below and further protect your machine.
