to protect you.

Windows now has an integrated antimalware program called Windows Defender.

Device Guard allows other operating systems

June 2020 Update:

We now recommend using this tool for your error. Additionally, this tool fixes common computer errors, protects you against file loss, malware, hardware failures and optimizes your PC for maximum performance. You can fix your PC problems quickly and prevent others from happening with this software:

  • Step 1 : Download PC Repair & Optimizer Tool (Windows 10, 8, 7, XP, Vista – Microsoft Gold Certified).
  • Step 2 : Click “Start Scan” to find Windows registry issues that could be causing PC problems.
  • Step 3 : Click “Repair All” to fix all issues.


Windows Guard will only process pre-approved applications during the boot process. IT developers can choose to allow all applications from a trusted vendor or configure them to check each application for approval. Whatever the configuration, Windows Guard runs only authorized applications. In most cases, approved applications are decided by the signature of the application developer.

This distorts the start options. Operating systems that do not have verified digital signatures should not be loaded by Windows Guard. But it doesn’t take much to certify an application or operating system.
