Windows 10: Windows Defender PUA/PUP protection is too picky

    Windows Defender PUA/PUP protection is too picky


    Today WD deleted Wagnard's DDU saying it was a non safe application. I had to run the GUI interface to be able to recover it from quarantine.

    How could inform MS that this is a false positive?

    Thanks. I would not be surprised if WD was not doing this after an update.
