How to prevent Windows from blocking torrents, cleaners and optimizers

In early August, Microsoft made changes to the protection system of Windows 10 and Windows 11. Operating systems began by default to block the operation of unwanted software – such that can negatively affect computer performance and Internet speed.

Windows Defender prevents these programs from running, removes them, or uses a firewall to prevent them from accessing the Internet. Fortunately, you can disable this option, the main thing is to know where to look for the toggle switch to disable.

Open Settings, go to Privacy & Security Windows Security Virus & Threat Protection Application / Browser Management, click Reputation Protection Options and turn off the toggle switch under the Block Potentially Unwanted Application option.


After that, it is not Windows that decides which applications you can run, but you yourself.
