Title: Windows Defender & MSE PUA Tweak
Post by: Dr Tweak on September 19, 2016, 07:13:11 pm
Attached below are tweaks for Windows Defender (PUA10) and MSE (PUA7) to enable detection of PUA's (Potential Unwanted Applications). This increases the malware that Microsoft will detect giving you better protection than the default database. Simply download then extract the .reg file and double click on it to merge it into your registry then reboot to take effect. More information about this tweak can be found HERE (https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/mmpc/2015/11/25/shields-up-on-potentially-unwanted-applications-in-your-enterprise/).

It was questionable that this tweak works with MSE, I have tested it and it does. Enjoy!
