    BTW thinking of switching back to BD as KIS has not fared as well in the comparatives ... thinking they may be getting sloppy.. I gave it a full year - no issues tho'.
    I ditched KIS when they removed the option to configure exceptions. Anyway you might be interested in this:

    UVK Help - Execute Prevent

    I'm using it after my AV let something (a virus) execute from AppData although it wasn't hard to remove manually I just locked everything down.

    You get this if something tries to run from a locked path:

    If that happens unexpectedly it could be a virus. If you tried to run a legit program add path to exclusions.

    Having this notification with every damn boot on 1809, did you find any reliable way to disable it?
    I don't get the notification any longer.. I have no idea what I did to nuke it...wish I did

    I don't set-up Comodo in any special way - only diffrence now (as opposed to my old install) maybe is that I did not block WU.. I will have to test that theory)

    Hmmm that's interesting...

    I'll check it out, it looks a lot like a smartscreen-type 'listener'... but thanx for the heads-up

    I think I finally got it with a registry setting to disable all notifications:

    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PushNotifications" /v "ToastEnabled" /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    reg add "HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer" /v "DisableNotificationCenter" /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

    I have tested the following on about 3 computers over 3 days. When these keys are there no notifications, when they are not they come back.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PushNotifications]
    "NoToastApplicationNotification"=dword:00000001
    "NoToastApplicationNotificationOnLockScreen"=dword:00000001

    Ideally we do not want to 'toast' all notifications --- just the firewall stuff... but good on you for posting a solution...

    I noticed that after I had posted it.

    The following looks like its working and I am still getting other notifications.

    Enable or Disable Notifications from Windows Security in Windows 10

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender Security Center\Notifications
    DisableNotifications = 1
    DisableEnhancedNotifications =1

    I had to create the Windows Defender Security Center and Notifications key and subkey.(1809 has Windows Defender key, ignore it) Create the Windows Defender Security Center and Notifications Then add the values.
    Testing:
    The computer was logged into and for about an hour with no Firewall message. Came in this morning logged in for 30 minutes no message. When I deleted these keys The Message came back within 5 minutes of logging in. I am now testing to see if both keys are needed, it looks like only the DisableNotifications is needed , not the enhanced. I also have tried this on two other Win 10 1809 Machines and it looks like after about 35 minutes no Firewall Message. Usually it will come up within 6 minutes of logging into the machine.

    OK good -- unfortunately I'm no good at testing stuff.. (I struggle testing my own apps, TBH...)

    Cool .. I had managed to get rid of it messing in GP somehow... so this reg entry is the solution.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Defender Security Center\Notifications]
    "DisableNotifications"=dword:00000001
    "DisableEnhancedNotifications"=dword:00000001
