The launch of Windows 11 comes with a breakthrough in interface design, along with a lot of useful features that Microsoft has announced. Details of the changes on Windows 11 you can read more inthis paragraph Please !
Microsoft also confidently affirms that this is the fastest and most secure version of Windows ever when it introduces Virtualization-Based Security technology – A hardware and software virtualization feature that enhances security, prevents fraud attack by malicious processes running in the background.
However, security is nowhere to be seen, but in the immediate future, this feature has reduced the gaming performance of your computer by up to 30% and I had to Downgrade to Windows 10 right after having extremely bad gaming experiences on Windows 11 @@
But don’t worry about having to reinstall Windows 10, because in this article I will show you how to Turn off Virtualization-Based Security feature on Windows 11, make the game play smoother!
I. What is Virtualization-Based Security on Windows?
As I mentioned at the beginning of the article, Virtualization-Based Security (VBS) or translated into Vietnamese is virtualization-based security is a security feature first introduced on Windows 10.
This feature allows the Windows operating system to use the hardware virtualization capabilities of newer CPUs to isolate a safe area of computer memory, thereby helping the computer to prevent hackers from executing malicious code. .
The short explanation is that, but for a deeper explanation, it is very long and confusing, if you want more information, you can visit the VBS introduction page on Microsoft Docs Please !
However, we hardly knew about this feature until Windows 11 was released with pre-enabled VBS, significantly reducing the gaming performance of mid- to low-end configuration computers. .
If you have upgrade from Windows 10 to Windows 11 The default Virtualization-Based Security feature is disabled. Because when upgrading, all the defaults on Windows 10 will be preserved.
On the contrary, if your machine is a new computer, or you have already done install new Windows 11 for computer By default, the Virtual-Based Security feature will be turned on. But it’s still best to check if that feature is enabled on the computer or not.

Unlike me, I had to downgrade to Windows 10 urgently after only half a day of use because it was too laggy with errors Windows Explorer Sometimes restarting itself is very frustrating.
