    How to disable Windows 8 Security Features?

    Hello, There is a lot of security features which are installed with the windows 8 installation, but am not comfortable with all these features, whenever am trying to open a file from c: drive, its asking admin permissions, but am the owner of my system why am unable to open and access all files in my own system. Even a game(Planetside 2) loaded in C: drive also not opening and now am not even able to copy it to another external disk, what to do enable all these security features of windows 8? Thank you.

    hi,
    the security features r by default installed for ur safety.
    u can surely disable them and access any file on ur system.
    -go to control panel and select security options.
    -disable all security options related to accessing files on system.
    -do not disable antivirus settings and windows firewall settings which r neccessary for system security.
    good day!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: How to disable Windows 8 Security Features?

    Here are the reasons behind your issue,

    1on't have administrative privileges

    2:Windows defender issue

    3:Firewall issue

    Solutions,

    1:Make sure your the admin to your computer before log in !

    With out admin privileges you can't do anything i mean moving or copying to another disk or pendrive so, sign out and sign in as, admin

    2:Widows defender always scans your computer so that, when ever there are .exe or some security files on the accessing folder it will invoke some permissions

    3:Firewall is most important to your system because it will protect your entire system from hacks, vulnerabilities etc.... from the real world

    4on't turn of windows defender, firewall if so, virus will crash your entire system. After turn off, it won't protect your system from viruses!

    That's it over!

    You have a host of problems which you know nothing about how to control.

    First of all, suggestion is that it is harmfull to disable Windows Security features. Windows Defender or Microsoft Security Essential can be activated to protect your system. However if you still insist on deactivating them ,
    Press Winkey + C , in the search box type, Windows Defender and press Enter.
    click Windows Defender,
    set it to OFF, press OK and Exit.
    Similarly if MICROSOFT SECURITY ESSENTIAL is installed and activated turn it off following the similar way.

    For Administrative Authority, either provide password, or,
    Press Winkey+ C , in the search box type cmd and press enter, right click on Command Prompt,
    from the list select Run As Administrator and press Enter to confirm.

    Enter the administrative authority domain.
