Not a Windows Defender hater, but on my 10 year (dual boot) laptop, it is worth a try to see whether I can reduce the cold startup of Edge-chromium (now takes 4 seconds and anything over 3 secs feels as slow). In Manjaro Chromium loads faster (I had enabled Firejail, but renoved it because it only marginally adds protection nowadays).

Thanks bro, I somehow forgot all about this nifty little program. Now I downloaded it again. Like it says on their home page, it can be very useful when copying large amounts of data from one storage device to another.

The current version works well, as compared to the previous one. One has to be cautious, because this tool uses TrustedInstaller privileges to disable WD Tamper Protection. Microsoft currently works to harden Tamper Protection, so this tool may be incompatible with the new Windows version (like it was with version 1903).
If so, then there is well known policy which works after manually disabling Tamper Protection via Windows Security Center:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender]
"DisableAntiSpyware"=dword:00000001
After restarting Windows, WD will be turned off.
