    [Windows Security] Automatic Sample Submission


    Countless times I get this security notification


    And countless times I choose "Dismiss".

    How can I stop this notification, short of "Turn on" automatic sample submission?

    Well, you could turn it on. When enabled Defender can 'block at first sight' new unknown viruses.

    Enable Windows Defender Block at First Sight in Windows 10

    But if that is not to your taste, the try clicking the 'Dismiss' in Defender's Windows Security app rather than on the notification. Usually a dismiss from within the app is permanent. If you don't see a 'dismiss' there, turn on automatic sample submission then turn it off again.

    Do come back and report. I know that other 'dismiss' links in Windows Security will 'hold', but it will be useful to know if that one does too.

    Do come back and report. I know that other 'dismiss' links in Windows Security will 'hold', and that dismiss on other notifications (like Focus Assist) won't. It will be useful to know if this one stays dismissed.

    Hi,
    You can't.
    Only reprieve and it's only slight is installing a different antivirus.
    But then the message only changes.
    Fall in line with the rest of the borg.

    I came across the following registry method, but I don't know if it still applies. Is anyone here familiar with the registry keys mentioned?: The quest for removing the yellow warning sign on the Windows Defender Security Center icon : Windows10
