Windows Defender Sandbox Needs Restart To be Enabled, Shutdown Will Not Work

On October 23, Microsoft announced that the Windows Defender can now run inside a sandbox on Windows 10, version 1703 or later, making it the first Windows anti-malware solution capable of such a feat. 

By placing Windows Defender inside a sandbox, Microsoft made it a lot harder if not impossible for malicious programs to gain access to critical system modules.

This is because, while sandboxed, Windows Defender is entirely isolated from the rest of the system, with extremely limited access to both disk resources and memory.

Although the Windows Defender sandbox feature is only rolling out for Windows insiders, all Windows 10 users can enable it by issuing the following command in an elevated Command Prompt using Administrator privileges.
