Defender is definitely the strangest antivirus program I've ever used. On my windows box, some - but not all - programs are blocked from creating new files anywhere on the C:\ drive - I can only create new files on E:\. I literally cannot create and save files in notepad, without either running in Admin mode or disabling Defender, for example. Another strange example: steam can download games, but certain games won't boot and others can't create new savefiles. +1 for the permanent disable option

There has got to be something wrong. This os not the norm.
