How to disable Web Guard


In the latest updates Windows 10 enabled by default Windows Defender Credential Guard (Windows Defender Account Protection) and it may happen that previously prepared virtual machines do not start in VMware Workstation or Hyper v.

I will not dwell on what kind of technology, because the purpose of this note is to simply and reliably disable the new security function and thereby correct the error: “VMware Workstation and Device / Credential Guard are not compatible. VMware Workstation can be run after disabling Device / Credential Guard«.

When you start an incompatible VM, this warning appears and immediately there is a link to the official manual for fixing this problem.
