There should not be any issues with HMPA.Hi @Andy Ful
The current Windows version is 1803 and I have HMPA too. Any issue with them?
I guess I have to read through all the pages now.
Just ran the x64 version and I think there's a bug
When the GUI is open and I press to minimize it minimizes to the lower task bar ie. there's an icon there. There's another icon in the system tray. Is this correct?
Should I close (or press the 'X') the GUI after setting to 'High' setting?
Should I just use default setting and let HMPA handles all exploit issues?
The icon on the System Tray (after minimizing ConfigureDefender) is related to the possibility of adding some options available via right-click Explorer context menu. I simply did not decide yet, If it would be necessary or not.
After configuring any settings, you should press the REFRESH (green) button to see if the changes were properly applied. Sometimes another external protection can block PowerShell cmdlets from applying the settings.
Some HMPA features may double a few WD ASR mitigations, especially those related to MS Office. But, I am not expert on HMPA. Generally, it is recommended to activate "Defender high Settings".
HMPA would double in a great deal the mitigations related to Windows 10 Exploit Protection, which is not included in ConfigureDefender (it works independently of WD).
