Steps to remove security settings
The security settings in Windows Operating Systems can be removed by disabling the features from the Control Panel. The Control Panel includes the security centre. Double clicking on the security center will open a window that provides you with options for disabling security facilities like the firewall, Automatic Updates and the virus protection. You can also remove security settings from the Windows Operating System through restore options in security settings and also from the system registry.
Issues that occur while doing so
While removing the security settings from the system, you may experience issues with the process. If the security options are disabled from the security center, then the computer maybe prone to various threats. Also, while working on the removal of the system security settings, the process may causes issues with networking.
The disabling of system security settings is a secure way to remove settings. But you should protect the computer with other third-party tools to secure your computer. The removal from the system registry can also cause issues. So you should only remove the values if you are aware of the registry values for the security settings. The removal of the security settings over a network should only be done with the help of a network administrator.
