Defender Periodic Scan Won't Turn Off

I am using Bitdefender AV on Win 10 Anniverser., Defender's periodic scan option was turned on, but now I want to turn it off. I click the option and it shows it is off, but when I go back into defender settings in is back on again and wont stay off. Keeps wanting to scan which is very annoying.

You should still be able to turn Windows Defender completely off with Group Policy:
