Played this on and off since they started and its good.

Project Zomboid

This game made you realise why it would all end quite quickly. Fire. In the game you can break into other houses, watching out for the dead left inside. You can use the cooker if the electric is still on, but if you then have to bug out quickly and don’t get a chance to turn the cooker off and there was food in it, a fire starts and that’s it. If it doesn’t rain soon then that fire spreads. I’ve had games where it spread for several blocks, I used it to thin out the heard. With no fire brigade to put fires out, it can spread for several streets.

Made you realise the likes of The Walking Dead wouldn’t last, simply due to fires starting and spreading.

Run gpedit from the start menu.

Go to Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Microsoft Defender Antivirus/

Set “Turn off Microsoft Defender Antivirus” to ENABLED. If you do this WON’T work, even with tamper protection off. Its supposed to enter a reg settings but doesn’t and when you open gpedit again you’ll see its not set again.

Instead I go to

Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Microsoft Defender Antivirus/Real-time Protection

And set “turn off real-time protection” to ENABLED. That seems to survive the settings change and turns of real time protection so you can do what you need when its incorrectly blocking files.


Point it to the file and if the site is still up, it will download but not run.
