And I guess you’re going to also charge a 30% fee for everything you allow the users to install on their devices a la Apple. So can you decide you don’t want a certain update, ever?

You are not required to agree as a condition of purchasing any property, goods, or services. So you don’t do stupid things like open malware that injects a key to disable WinDefender.
If you don’t have that choice, no other choice you have matters, because a change you don’t want can be forced on you at any time anyway. And if you really want to, you can set Brother dll errors the startup type of any service to ‘4’ aka disabled, although you might have to seize ownership. Well, it looks like this only touches the Pro and Home SKUs, so Enterprise remains the choice for "pros who might want to do unusual stuff". It’s also really good at turning itself off if you have 3rd party security software.
the alternative to not trusting Microsoft is either going for a demonstrably worse vendor, or disabling security protections altogether which is worse still. They just took away the registry as the means to disable it. MS doesn’t trust their own OS to prevent malware from disabling its protection. I’ll never understand the AV market, except to remember that every time an antivirus package gains dominance, it tends to be ruined shortly thereafter. If we assume Microsoft’s failures with bad updates are more likely due to incompetence than malice, then reducing the number of such updates still improves your chances of avoiding trouble. Another important question is, why trust Microsoft?
You know, a first phase of an operation to 0wn your box more than Microsoft does. Because the registry entry changes nothing and the option to disable defender still exists with a simple button press in the settings option. I couldn’t connect to the internet after that update, because I had blocked all the snooping Windows-phone-home sites since day 1, once I disabled the block, everything worked again. why is it any software can set itself to run at start-up? It literally disables itself right in the summary, and literally gives you a button to do it. The only thing this registry entry did was provide an admin override preventing users from inadvertently re-enabling Defender if another package was installed.
