Ok here is a really strange question.

Does anyone know of any "fake" or "decoy" anti virus tools -
nothing malicious or anything..   just something that tricks
windows 10 into thinking a 3rd party antivirus is installed,
so I can disable their windows defender rubbish so I can
claw back a bit of CPU/ram/disk performance.

Odd question, but I know from experience even if task
manager pretends it isn't by mis-reporting,   defender and
pretty much any anti-virus solution will eat up pretty much 
50%+ disk performance, and up to 25-30% cpu, not to mention
ram, continuously when you try doing any sort of
productivity work.

Bill Gates: 640k is more than enough for anybody
PC guy down the road: You will never fill that 10mb Hard disk mate
Abbott/Turnbull: 25Mbps is "more than enough" for the average Australian household.
Turnbull: Actually 10MBs is enough for the average household really.
Abbott/Turnbull: It is cheaper to put in FTTN, you get up to 24mbs/down and 256k up.. we can upgrade it more later...
