Windows Defender and Microsoft Toolkit

Post by jstvj » Thu Nov 19, 2015 6:08 pm

I activated Windows 10 with Microsoft Toolkit. I started using Windows Firewall and Defender, which keeps showing HackTool:Win32/keygen and HackTool:Win32/Msnpass. I have tried to allow them and/or remove them both, but the green cleaning progress bar stops at three quarters and the cleanng does not finish. The main status screen does eventually show green tick, but I still cannot close the cleaning window. Closing Defender down or Restarting Windows clears the problems, but soon after Defender detects the same two infections again. Should I stop using Windows Defender and go back to a third party program :?

You must exclude in Defender: C:\ Windows\AutoKMS directory and also the MSToolKit exe.

I recommend a third party such as ESET ESS.

I didn't spell it out completely.
Should look like 'Microsoft.Toolkit.2.6B5.exe', depending what version you used.
Thats what you used to activate Windows 10.
