Once in there, you will have to follow the path indicated and perform the following steps according to the TLS version you are running.

TLS 1.0

This subkey controls the use of TLS 1.0.

For TLS 1.0 default settings, see Protocols in the TLS/SSL (Schannel SSP).

Registry path: HKLM SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Protocols

To disable TLS 1.0 for the client or server, change the DWORD value to 0. If an SSPI app requests to use TLS 1.0, it will be denied.

To disable TLS 1.0 by default, create a DisabledByDefault entry and change the DWORD value to 1. If an SSPI app explicitly requests to use TLS 1.0, it may be negotiated.

The following example shows TLS 1.0 disabled in the registry:
