    All I would recommend if you're only using WD as the native AV twin this with OSArmor, alongside Configure Defender. I would certainly turn on Updates as well, unless there's a preferred reason why, this is essential to secure your OS.

    If you saw the update version, its the latest available update for v1803. I also manually update WD bi-weekly. It helps me save lot of data since I don't have high volume of data w/ Wifi.

    Removed:
    Incognito This Tab addon.

    @harlan4096 I couldn't see Kaspersky Free listed at USA site and downloaded KSC Free for my sister and so far so good. Only issue is WD keeping nagging KSC FW is inactive and I've double checked that Windows FW is active and working. Any idea? I disabled Web protection module since it was slowing down the browser and I'm good with BD Traffic light addon.
    That issue with FW disabled was with W10 1803 but it's fixed with W10 1809...

    Update: I think for USA You have to download global version: https://www.kaspersky.com/downloads/thank-you/free-antivirus-download

    Updated to build 619 since I talked with Killer WLAN card rep and he said BT hasn't been working on v1803 and some got it working on v1809. I tested it on my old PC and it seems None of the Qualcomm BT features works on v1803.
    So, I'm downloading 19H1 UUP dump for detailed testing.

    Huh? Is that a good thing or a bad thing lol
    The UI is really bad. Light theme is like Super High contrast White we used in Win 95/98 and icons looks similar too!
    Net icon is shown as black and white globe. If you connect to Wifi/Ethernet only then icon changes to show WiFi/Ethernet.

    Some tray icons are missed out and highlights are blown out of proportions. So I switched to Dark mode for windows and Light mode for apps.

    View in full screen and you'll see the difference. In HDR panel you'll see that Light Theme is too harsh on eyes.

    @Andy Ful A bug report for Configure Defender on Insider release 18846.1 because WD v1902.3 has been shipped to all PCs using Win defender through WU and w/o disabling Tamper protection configuredefender options no longer works and even mpcmdrun cleanup commands no longer works and it throws Not found error. Disabling Tamper protection enabled me to apply configure defender ruleset. The real bug lies in CHild Protection because clicking on it will set Configure defender to use High/Paranoid settings.

    Interesting. I tried two days ago H_C (with ConfigureDefender) in VM on WIndows 18841.1 and everything worked without issues (Tampered protection ON). I will try to update Windows and repeat the test.

    I know in VM there was no issues but W10 these days detect VM and nearly all features just works. The same image snapshot in real Host OS has lot of issues. I installed it in daily usage machine. I wanted to test if BT audio issue on v1803 has been fixed or not. Yes its fixed.

    Cannot update the Windows Insider 18841 to 18845, the update fails in VM.:(
    I will wait some time and will make a fresh install of the new Windows Insider version to test ConfigureDefender & WD Tamper Protection.(y)

    Sorry my version is 18346.1. Sorry for the typo.
    You can to do ISO upgrade method because updates are being delivered really slow as possible for best experience.

    Made an in-place upgrade to latest insider 18362.1.
    Good news is that conflicting driver settings reverted to factory defaults after upgrading to latest W10 build.
    Bad news bugs and older apps/games doesn't work well on newest OS w/o using W8 compatibility layer. Even some apps like VMware runs fine with W8 settings and if left at default they bootup in black screen. Older dx9,10 and 11 released before 2013 doesn't exit properly when I tested it against 18346.1 and I might test it tomorrow.
