    Over the past month or so, multiple new-ish Dell desktops running Win 11 Pro (upgraded from Win 10 Pro x64) have begun offering Windows Security notifications that “Memory integrity is off. Your device may be vulnerable.”

    Not sure why this alert is only now being offered (i.e., vs 3 months ago, or 6 months ago?), but doesn’t much matter I suppose. As Memory integrity security feature has been around and been field-tested for some years now, and as Memory integrity feature is on by default now for fresh Win 11 installs, seems like best path to follow is simply to…

    – turn Memory integrity feature on (Windows Security > Device security > Core isolation – Memory integrity)

    – address any resulting driver issues (e.g., https://www.askwoody.com/forums/topic/memory-integrity-error/ )

    Anything I’m missing here? Differing views? Relevant tales from the trenches?

      I had to turn off memory Integrity some time ago on my Dell XPS 8930 desktop running Windows 10 Pro (will be 5 years old in December). I was suddenly getting alerts. Main culprit was my Western Digital Passport that backs up the computer. Western Digital was clueless. There were a lot of irritated folks like me (mostly Dell XPS desktop users) when I searched for the issue. My Passport works fine for backing up but WD never updates the drivers. They are OFF my list of vendors to purchase from when I get a new computer.
