    Removed AVG free and activated WD with High settings (ConfigureDefender)
    I could not use WD because since 1903 i had problems with boot-up my system, most of the time i had a black screen and was stuck with a 3rd party AV.
    This week i saw in windows updates they changed something to WD atp and i think this bugfix did it, now it seems my system boots up fine the past 2 days with WD active (y)

    Another test with Windows Defender Antivirus (High settings ConfigureDefender new version)
    I am curious why your system has a problem with booting when using WD. Something probably spoiled your system. On Windows 10 you do not need Wise Cleaner - you can safely use Windows built-in cleanmgr.exe or BleachBit.
    Did your rebooting problem was present with WD on default settings?
    You should consider the possibility that the rebooting problem might be caused by system cleaners or 3rd party security leftovers, etc.
    Did you try refreshing the system?

    @Andy Ful as i mentioned in my previous post :

    This week (mid august) i saw in windows updates they changed something to WD ATP and i think this bugfix did it, now it seems my system boots up fine (it was only on some devices that windows failed at boot)

    So the problem is solved at mid august when i was reading the release notes, they made a small change to atp and from then no more problems to boot the machine:)
