    Stopping Defender from telling me it found nothing?

    Is there a way to stop the alerts from Windows Defender that uselessly tell me it found nothing? If there's no problem, I don't need or want to hear about it.

    Just tell me if/when it finds something suspicious, then I'll deal with it. Otherwise STHU!

    That looks like it disables *all* notices. I only want to disable the pointless "All is well!" alerts. No news is good news is what I like.

    I've found that antivirus/malware software often tends to nuke various completely harmless utilities and things like demos.

    I gave up on Avast because that company would not learn from their mistakes on false positives. It repeatedly kept deleting various demos from farbrausch and other groups.
