    PUP detection is activated by adding an entry to Windows Registry.
    I find it quicker and more simple to manage by powershell:

    Get-MpPreference
    find PUAprotection… set values with

    Set-MpPreference -PUAProtection enabled

    Most people have no wish to install the c**p bundled with free software. MiniTool should be supplying software which does't trigger a virus alert else they risk people not installing the software and losing sales.
    It is FREE with no expiration and this is how a lot of vendors cover the cost. Others have Trial versions that expire so you can try before you buy.

    If you don't like FREE versions they buy it.

    Well,... yup... all good apps should be funded and that, but Avast has poor goodwill, thus the aversion. Interesting that WD PUP'd it though.
