Windows 10: Less intrusive "Free" AV

    I have just installed 360 Total Security Essential. So far, so good. It seems it doesn't show any nagging ads or such. Good.
    My systems feels more responsive than before. Memory footprint is okay. Of course I have enabled Avira engine (the other three were enabled by default). Interface is pleasant and tidy (like WD).

    Icons in folders show instantly (unlike WD).

    You could try using this, run CMD as admin and enter:

    reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Real-Time Protection" /v "DisableBehaviorMonitoring" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f

    Eventually you might also want to disable cloud based protection via the settings.

    It should stop false positives, but it will also lower overall protection, WD will be unable to stop suspicious threats.
    Isn't behavior monitoring only in the Enterprise release?

    I guess, it is hidden a setting, it is present on Pro version, I would assume it applies to Home as well via registry.

    My mistake - confusing that with the PUA protection: Windows Defender PUA Protection - Enable or Disable in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    I like Avast Free. Put it in gaming mode and the messages get reduced.

    I have Panda Free on about 10 different Win 10 installations and it works great. The least obtrusive one I've found, and it gets top ratings for effectiveness.

    The only thing I don't like about 360 TS Essential is that it takes up a whopping 1 GB of hard disk space. Other than that, it's a great antivirus.
