    I have to tell you configuring Windows Defender Home version in 1709 is, how you say, #@%$^&%%. Despite extensive reading and doing a very little testing on my own, I'm still not quite sure if the torturous "enablements" of Network Protection, etc are really active and under what circumstances. Windows Defender in Pro using the Group Policy is for me, night and day, a piece of cake. @Opcode's remark is perfect, no matter how you slice it.

    What version was all of this happening with? I've seen nothing of the sort with the latest build on a variety of test platforms.

    Agreed. Those were dark days for HMPA. It was largely unusable.
